A Better Boat AKA Giving Thanks

As you may have noticed, I use music in many instances to help me to illustrate where I am with things. This morning, a few different songs were in my head as I started the day. The first, as I recall, was Stand By Your Man and I gotta admit, I have NO IDEA where that came from. The next was With A Little Help From My Friends. That one, I know exactly why it was on my mind. Joe Cocker version, preferable here. Sorry, Beatles fans!

My Blo(n)g

Just a little bit ago, my girl Tanya took time to message me that while she was enjoying my last post, it's long, and she was out of time to finish it. Go figure.

That lead to us determining that I should start my next post with:

"Hi, my name is Shannyn and welcome to my blo(n)g."

Well, we thought it was funny, at least. This is the kinda thing silly people can come up with on a slow Friday afternoon when we are supposed to be working.

The other thing I wanted to mention was a nice happening yesterday. I was finishing up with my new counselor/therapist, and as she was setting the next appointment time, she remarked, unsolicited, that she likes my name Shannyn, and especially the spelling with a Y.

I explained how I chose the name and told her thank you. It REALLY made my day. It felt so good, I think what I'm after in this world is a good idea.

So, that's it for today. My blong is short for a change. Wouldn't want to fall into any patterns here! Thanks to everyone who reads any of these, it's really appreciated.

Still Moving

The last post I wrote here was pretty silly, I will admit. Today's is quite different, but I like where I end up this time. And I'm both shocked and grateful that this is the case. It's a clash of past versus present, and as it must, present wins out. Remember, all you kids out there...don't look back. At least be very careful if you do. And don't linger there.
