Day What It Is?

A  L  O  H  A !
What Day Is It?   What Year?!

A rut is 
just a groove 
you don't 
want to be in. 

Some people are back to work - or never stopped

" He that respects himself 
is safe from others; 
he wears a coat of mail 
that none can pierce. "

         Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

But not everybody is working. For some 
there is time to walk on the beach.

" Taking time to do 
often brings 
into perspective. "
                          Doe Zantamata


Holidays are disorienting.
That is a big part of
their purpose.

They break boring routine,
then make us long for
our routines again.

Holiday Magic!

We dance through the year,
'Same Same ~ New New"

The rhythm changes.
Sometimes the song does-
then we must dance
to a different tune.

But keep dancing!
Just keep dancing,
As long as you can
hear the music-
               Fondly, cloudia

I wonder if your pretty bird wants some company? I could just go for a walk on the beach, sigh!

I would enjoy the walk on the beach with the gulls. Beautiful photos and great quotes, Cloudia! Happy weekend!

Let there always be music! That idea that a rut is a groove you don"t want to be in a profound. It'd good to alter perceptions like change is good.

I like the Doe Zantamata quote

You've had a tad too much to drink if you can hula and mummer at the same time...

HW Longfellow was born in my 'city by the sea', AND I do so hope my driveway isn't too rutted in the AM. Getting 4-8 inches of whiteness.

adorable beach walker following the tracks! :)

Cool post... I have danced my way back to San Diego. School starts on Monday, but the change in routine was wonderful. Dancing in holiday rituals produces a collective sense of effervescence, according to Emile Durkheim. But I think you enjoy effervescence every day ;)

Cloudia said...

Thanks! Effervescent ones! 🌴♥

The bird's walking around like he owns the joint, I see!

Going to have to get back in routine pretty soon, shrug back into the harness.

If holidays are meant to disorientate.. it's working :) Did you hang out of the window to take the shot of the window cleaner Cloudia.. are you mad :)

I did remember to go to dancing. I really needed it to work off some calories. The days get mixed up at this time of year for sure.

Love your quotes and your photos! Everyone wants to be "in the groove" and nobody wants to be "in a rut." :-)

RedPat said...

Walking on the beach would be out of the rut but cold here and it is snowing! ;-)

Seagull says, "Into the groovy, everybody!"

Happy Holidays! Enjoy every second of the dance! Hugs!

And if you can't hear the music, make some of your own and dance anyway.

Oh my, he can have that job! For me finally the last little overnight munchkin has returned home and I'm putting away all the decorations today, still, yet! Hehehe. But hoping to hit the snowy slopes yet today for a Checkpoint Minnesota hunt! Wish me luck!

That is a great perspective of the painter.
