'Softer-Simpler'...... Thank you....

Thank you so much, for your lovely comments on my last post.  Thank you for saying you agree with my sentiments.  It isn't always necessary for comments to agree with me.  I just mean, my topic of wishing for 'Softer-Simpler,' could be controversial. 

It can sound like sticking one's head in the sand, I know.  And it is not for everyone.  Of course.  But it is lovely to know that others do long for such.   And it gives me a push to write such. 

Aren't some of we bloggers silly?  ,-)   We still don't have quite enough confidence, to jump on a theme and run with it, even without knowing that it will be accepted....?   This post, is certainly a perfect example of that.

Sooooo....   I don't have any excuses now, do I?  :-) 

In between reading and watching some 'Miss Marple' dvd's, I'll try to compose some 'Softer-Simpler'.  :-)

Softer, simpler, etc

I'm getting nostalgic for softer, simpler, etc.  Perhaps my present lack of blogging inspiration, is doing it.  Or maybe all the horrors of 'the news'...  Or my going back to visit in  Merryville...  Whatever...

Me-thinks this is where my muse is pushing me.  Not for every post.  That would become too difficult, to keep up.  And it would cease to be fun.  And blogging has to be fun.  ,-)

But perhaps for a now and then post...  I want to label such posts, in some way.  So if Dear Readers had no wish to go to softer-simpler, that day, they could pass on.  Because not all of us, are wanting this.  It can feel like 'sticking one's head in the sand' I know.  To *escape* to softer-simpler, in the midst of the world today.  

.
.
Then again, since I can't do anything constructive, about the horrors of the world today, that in itself makes softer-simpler more alluring.  To me, anyway.

.
.
So maybe...  This is what I will try to do.  Write things, about the not-so-present, and of the more-whimsical.  We shall see...
