Winter is not going gentle is it? I have been thinking a lot about resilience this week. Webster’s Dictionary defines it as “an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change”. Tuesday was such a tease! It just could not have been a lovelier hat-free, coat-negotiable day, and then to wake up to the lung exploding cold of Thursday? Well, that was just plain cruel. But just knowing that going forward Tuesday would soon be the new normal and Thursday a distant, unpleasant memory made it that much easier to keep putting one foot in front of the other. Also, this is a Full Moon Weekend. This Full Moon has many different names: The Full Worm Moon for the alleged thawing that is supposed to be happening but is not, the Full Crust Moon for the texture of the earth from the freezing and thawing, the Full Sap Moon which those of us who park on street under trees can attest to, and The Full Lenten Moon. Whatever you call it the message is clear, we are nearing the end of this endless winter. So keep bouncing back People! We are on the upswing! Sweet Ann is asking us a question with her Words of Wisdom this week. “Is that the best you’ve got?” Let’s all show our better side, shall we? This week we have a Boy-Toy and his boat, inside dirt, more Mars (still the planet not the God of War), emotional damage and some wooing. And of course, The Playlist!
Let us begin!
