Aside

Change

3 Apr

Today I took a walk in the snowy slush (it was 80° on Sunday!) and thought about some things.  Mostly, I sung the song from the Neverending Story to myself, but I did do some thinking.

I miss Kiki.  She would’ve hated today.  She did not like the snow or peeing and pooping outside in the cold weather.  I bet it kinda sucks to be a little dog in the winter.  Poor little girl.

I also thought about weddings and engagements and sappy stuff like that.  A good friend of mine just got engaged and I’m throwing them an engagement party on Saturday.  Never a dull moment.

I thought a little bit about my trip to the Bahamas a couple of months ago.  I miss sunshine.  This winter better hurry up and end.  It’s like every time we get a surprise snow after a warm day I feel a twinge of defeat.

But mostly, I thought about change, and I don’t just mean the weather.  March was quite a month of change, y’all.  It started with terror (long story, not worth telling) and then quickly escalated to sadness, then craziness, and then just plain confusion.  One thing that changed as well was that my little solo living room dance parties quietly exited my life- and that is just a shame.  I hadn’t noticed!  Dancing makes everyone smile, no matter if you are Kiki or the grumpy old neighborhood man who glares at the passersby from his porch.

So, without further ado, I am cranking up an old dance mix (no time to make a new one, this is an emergency), shaking off the cold, and starting a solo dance party.  Today it will be in the dining room (in the spirit of change).
