Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

I like that you included songs about opposites! Good call 🙂
Thank you !
I like this post. I never realized about the contrasts in “My Girl.” Very cool! I also really liked the “Contrasts in E Minor.” A middle school performance. Takes me back to my music teaching days. My other favorite (one can never have too many favorites) is “Night and Day.”
Yes I have to admit to having lots of favourites too. Glad I found some of yours.
Also, have you heard from Bear in the last few days. There have been no posts from her, and she has not responded to a couple things I’ve sent her. I hope she’s ok.
No I haven’t actually, I also hope she is fine. It could be the weather. I know America is suffering with terrible weather. Fingers crossed that is is okay.
Well Willow we have one song in common. 🙂
I haven’t heard from Bear either. Sending warm thoughts her way.
Yes me too sending thoughts her way. Let’s hope she is only missing the Internet and that her power is okay and they are warm and fed.
Hey, I’m going to try to get you back into the Theme Selection Loop here. Do you want to pick the next Music Theme? Up to you if it is a Sunday or Monday post.
Let me know what you decide.
Hi Eva I am not sure what to pick but I would like to get back into the loop. Could we go for Monday please lets go “What inspires me “……….. will that do ? I do hope you are happy and well.
Ok, since Willow has an idea, and it’s kind of close to mine anyway, I can wait.
No Deborah we go with your theme mine was just a knee jerk reaction to a request. I am happy to slip back in whenever. Sorry for any confusion. xx xx
Thanks, Willow! I feel better knowing you’re ok with it. 🙂 I’ll wait until I’m asked next time, or maybe we can re-establish a rotation again.
No you are in the right place no worries!!
Thanks, Willow! You are kind and gracious. 🙂
🙂 I am just me!
I like the “me” you are! I so appreciate having you in my life, even if we’ve never met in person. 🙂
yes friends are friends are friends . I feel so happy to met such lovely people on here you included!! 😉
Hey willow. With our kindly keeper of rotation and links MIA–aka Bear–things are a bit messy. Oh well. That’s the way of things. If you’re willing to hold your next choice for a round, that’s fine with me. But I do want to get you back into the choice stream when you’re ready. 🙂 Sorry that I caught you at a bad time when you were tired. Didn’t mean to put you on the spot. I do like your knee-jerk theme choice though.
Dear Eva don’t worry I shall wait until there is a space for me no hurry I am not fussed at all . I just want everyone to be happy!
No it is your turn I am waiting and in no rush!!
I was under the impression it was my mom’s turn– she’s been working on a blog for the occasion. Is there an official list? As a newbie I’m all sorts of confused!
No sorry Eva asked me for a theme I was tired so just did one off the top of my head mine can wait. Sorry. Xx
It is your mum’s turn it was just a mix up ! all good you go with your Mum’s choice! 😉
Hi again willow. Well, Deborah, in keeping with her ‘placement’ from the last round has picked a theme. Now we could do either theme –your’s “What inspires me..” or just one theme at a time.
Hi let’s just go with Deborah’s (what is it please) and maybe go with mine next time. 🙂 xx
I don’t want to interfere, but I thought I was after Johnny, before Bear. I was ready to post a theme. Should I wait?
No go ahead
Hi Eva I will just fit in when it is convenient I do not want to upset anyone.
My mom asked me to let you and the others know she posted a new theme: http://myriad234.wordpress.com/2014/01/11/my-favorite-things-hobbies-and-pasttimes-music-theme-for-january-13/
Sorry for mix up we go with your mum’s theme mine can be fitted in whenever. xxxx
I’m sorry Willow, I thought you had done one for New Year’s, and Bear had told me that I would be after Johnny in the rotation. I hope I didn’t upset you. It certainly was not my intent.
No it is you turn go ahead.
