Monday August 4th

Today was a day of long conversations with friends,
painting trim in the kitchen,
re-hanging blinds,
cleaning the kitchen really well,
putting things away,
reorganizing,
and so much more.

I am trying like mad to get things around the house in better order. There are so many things that have been on my list for long enough and I am determined to get that list as short as possible as quickly as possible.
I am not sure where this spark of motivation came from but I do not ignore it when it happens.
Along with motivation for the house I am having it for work as well. There are so many ideas running around in my head I need get to my bench A.S.A.P. As soon as my house list gets to a point that I feel accomplished I will get back to my work.

So much rumbling around my head these days, so much to consider and so much to figure out, look at and decipher. All of the questions and so few answers. I guess that working like I have been for these last weeks and months has been my attempt to try to turn a part of my brain towards focusing on all of these issues and to try to find the answers that I crave to discover.

I do not think I am a new soul at all. I think I am a middle aged soul on my journey. But I do think that some of lyrics have a resonance for my journey

Yael Naim - New Soul

I'm a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit bout how to give and take
But since I came here, felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake

La, la, la, la (21x)
La, la, la, la (21x)

See I'm a young soul in this very strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit bout what is true and fake
But why all this hate? try to communicate
Finding trust and love is not always easy to make

La, la, la, la (21x)
La, la, la, la (21x)

This is a happy end
Cause you don't understand
Everything you have done
Why's everything so wrong

This is a happy end
Come and give me your hand
I'll take you far away

I'm a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit bout how to give and take
But since I came here, felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake

New soul... (la, la, la, la,...)
In this very strange world...
Every possible mistake
Possible mistake
Every possible mistake
Mistakes, mistakes, mistakes...
