Yada, Yada, Yada

Every time I sit down to write lately,
my words sound like rubbish to my ears
so I delete them before I get too far.
I have a friend who protests loudly
whenever I use the phrase, "blah, blah, blah"
in conversation with her.
Thankfully she doesn't have my blog address.

Been there and done that dear Hope. I'm in a writing slump right now myself. I just do the best I can though the mind is mush.

Love and prayers,
PG

I know empty-headed feeling. Sometimes do you think it's just, well, serenity? I call it my "thinking no thoughts" time.

I love the saying blah, blah, blah. If the shoe fits? Stopping by to say hello friend!

That's how I've been feeling for a little while, now, both in words and pictures. To everything, there is a season, I guess. I'm thinking it's a dormant spell.

Not many sleeps 'til the shortest day... :)

There's a business man who uses our facility to present a program for "family businesses" he calls incessantly, is somewhat courteous in his interaction, says thank you...but he's always grated on my nerves. I wasn't able to figure it out until the last time he called.

It was after his last meeting, he called under the guise of saying thank you and letting me know that the facility was great as always, but somewhere in the middle of his thanks and how wonderful he say "blah blah blah" and went on from there.

I figured it out. It felt completely insincere to me, as though he had painted a big red X over the thanks and kudos. It felt like lip service that he HAD to do in order to get somewhere or something.

I choose to believe that he wouldn't call and say thank you and ask to use our facility again if we didn't do a good job, but I cannot help admitting that the words didn't have a feeling of sincerity, luckily I realize (thanks Alanon and AA) feelings are not facts and actions speak as loudly as words.

:) YAY GOD!

I'm just glad even to see a little blurb from you! I totally understand that feeling ...

Gabriella Moonlight said...

I get this idea, but please write soon, we miss you and hope you will be back to writing soon as nothing I've read of yours is blah, blah, blah!

It too shall pass!

love you

Every time I see yada, yada, yada--I picture Elaine in the restaurant with Jerry and George. That was my favorite episode:)

I totally get blah, blah, blah. It says so much in such a small space! I have found in times like this, I need some kind of inspiration. Usually one or more of my meditation books helps to inspire something. Sending you a hug and warm wishes!

I have been posting blah blah blah for a few days because that's just where I am. I does feel strange thought to sit down with nothing to say doesn't it?

Evelyn said...

I'll keep watching! Meanwhile, just enjoy BEING for a while!
