I find myself compelled to write about things that I wasn’t planning on writing about in this blog. But isn’t that life the unknown the ever changing. Has anyone ever had everything planned out and it really goes that way? Maybe some but was it interesting then? As I sit down to write this I can’t get over how quiet it is in the house. Everyone is in bed and my hearing aid is out for the night. It is total silence. There is no dripping faucets, no creaky floor boards, no furnace or fridge running. I see an occasional car drive by but no sound. How strange this is but at the same time amazing. How you go into life and then the unforeseen detour on the road takes you on another direction. So we are in for a major snow storm some saying upwards of 10 inches. Now the power just went out. I am not kidding you can’t make this stuff up. See the unforeseen always seems to happen. So when this new path comes up what are you to do? Learn to deal, make the best of it, find the positives, I guess I am still trying to figure that out. I know my drive to write has been heightened and I want to go with that. It is a wonderful outlet and maybe it will go somewhere someday. Listening to music has been an obsession of mine for the past few days. I don’t know why, I am a tv person. Love having the tv on as background noise and it is on all the time. I haven’t turned it on in 3 days. Kids think I am going nuts. I wonder why the music, am I somehow worried someday I won’t hear it? Not sure, it has to be turned way up but I am loving it lately. Life is an always changing organism. I am finding that out a lot in the past few years. With a move out to the Prairies of MN, with a son who receives an SPD and Autism Spectrum diagnosis and now hearing loss. Always changing and we have to be receptive maybe not willingly but life goes on and we want to go with it.
