Quiet Time

That's where I'm at...in my quiet zone. I think that every now and then, we all need some time for reflection, for looking to where we are and where we want to be, want to go, what we want to do. I've always been a multi-tasker. I'm rarely doing just one thing at a time. I kind of thrive in a pressured environment. But this past weekend, even still today, I am in quiet mode. No projects, no hobbies, not even writing (well, this, but not writing poetry as usual.) I think my mind and body sense that I am at rest, mentally. Maybe I just need to recharge my batteries. {A day at the spa sounds magical! -especially since I've never been to one. OR MAYBE...what has me so quiet is my upcoming birthday. Yup! Think I've got the birthday blues. My nine year old asked me why I was more excited about his concert that day (how lucky am I? A special concert on my bday) than about the fact that it's my birthday. I told him it's not that exciting as you get older. Why is that? It should be, right? So maybe that's part of what I am pondering. In the meantime, if you wonder where I'd slipped off to, why my words aren't dancing on my blog page, I'm in my cave...pensive and hopefully growing optimistic. I also need to dye my gray roots while I'm in there!
