The winds of change make me cringe. I can smell it a mile away. It is like a sniff of air that is about to explode with hail, rain and storm.
I do not like change. Allow me to clarify, I don’t like negative change.
No, absolutely not. Unless we are moving to Tuscany, to a farmhouse, where I will tend to my garden, reading and writing to my heart’s content. I am feeling very clever and positive about that particular change.
Wait! that was just last night’s dream.
Um, I’m checking, I still don’t like change.
I’m looking at the upside, the positive, the value, a change towards education. A change that I may not necessarily want, yet, that which might be best.
I’ve even made a spreadsheet or two. I know a certain someone would be very proud. I don’t like spreadsheets in general, I like them a little now, they keep me organized. Not that I wasn’t before, er, well, that certain someone will know what I mean.
I have drunk too much coffee, to which I am allergic – yes! it’s bad. The body fell apart last weekend, headaches, stress, knee pain from yoga and running, everything was exacerbated from not being present. I stopped and made myself a batch of chocolate instead. The jar is right here. Really good for me. My brain has analyzed all scenarios – so far, I have not come up with anything good. I would like to move on, but an imminent decision weighs heavily.
I do however want to make a positive change… tell me what you think. Many of my dear blog friends, especially Mumsy/Jen (who has encouraged me from the beginning) of http://ramblingsfromamum.wordpress.com and my dear friend Sanjee (book lover and reader), from http://skbsbooknook.wordpress.com think it is a marvelous idea to move my book reviews to a new site on WordPress, dedicated simply to reviews and all things bookish. They are lovely. I am considering it.
I don’t know if you will all follow, but most of you know, that I love books with a passion, I feel them, I see the characters, I journey with them and some even stay with me as guests, for a day or two, long after the story has ended.
I have played around with words for a new blog name – I love doing that.
Some of them have included taking the Latin words ‘Helluo Librorum’ – Literally a glutton of books… I realize it makes me sounds very greedy, like I belong in a trough with a slop of mud. Perhaps it is not a good title.
How about Meditatingmummy- bibliophile?
Bookworm in Italian ‘ il topo de biblioteca’ – library mouse – my current favorite. Better a mouse than a worm, although I like the idea of a caricature of a worm with glasses who reads a lot.
I also like Bibliophagos – the modern Greek translation of book-worm, meaning ‘book eater.’ Er, that would mean… I eat my books. Actually, I don’t. I smell them, especially when they are new. The crisp pages of a new book… mmm, lovely.
Um, I could simply stay on as Meditatingmummy and continue to write book reviews on this blog – decisions, decisions… some are easier than others, some, we have no choice.
Would love to hear from you all…
