The topic for each day will begin with the designated letter of the alphabet.
This Saturday’s letter is K.
I knew I would be writing about this topic today.
After I told Ross what the letter of the day was, he started throwing out suggestions. Or maybe his statement was actually a literal suggestion when he said, “Go Fly a Kite.”
Could it be that he is feeling neglected because of my preoccupation and dedication to A-Z?
No, I’m sure he was just trying to be helpful. hmmm.
Anyway, so I said to him, “This is the easiest letter for me. Of course, I wouldn’t be writing about anything but that.”
For the last three years it has been one of my “number one" obsessions. Yes, I do believe you can have more than one “number one” obsessions. For instance, during the A-Z challenge both of my obsessions share the number one spot.
I have been through a hard time lately which has caused me a great deal of stress and anxiety. I’ve tried Yoga, exercise and guided mediation. None of those things worked for me.
Today, I am writing about something which has provided me and continues to provide me with the utmost comfort. It is my Zen.
I envy those who are naturally creative.
I wish I could draw or paint. I’ve tried, but what my “artistic” eye sees doesn’t quite translate the same way onto a sketch pad or canvas.
I fancy myself spotlighted on a stage in front of a large crowd, tossing my hair and gyrating to the beat, (no tweaking, though). My imaginary grand production is explosive with backup singers, dancers and all. But alas, I can’t carry a tune and anyway my body just doesn’t move that way. I’m more of the wedding Tarantella group dancer.
What I am writing about today satisfies my creative needs.
I am attracted by bright colors and sparkly things. But, because of my shyness or fear of being the center of any attention, my wardrobe consists of nondescript shades of blacks and grays.
An additional reward that I get from my topic for today is that I can touch and squish neon pinks and bright greens. I can pet soft lavenders and stroke berry reds. If I want to, I can even choose silver or gold.
The best thing about my subject is that after I have picked out the perfect color, quietly and peacefully enjoyed hours of uninterrupted Zen, proudly marveled at my progress and then throughly enjoyed its final beauty, I have the ultimate pleasure of tying it all together, placing a big fancy bow on it and giving this gift to someone else to treasure.
