I am 58 years old now and many years ago I decided I to live in the present moment. It helped me overcome my mild depression. I don’t sit around allowing myself to get depressed about past events. But it makes it hard for me to remember names of people and details of what happened in the past, then I panic and wonder if I’m getting dementia or something. Am I okay if my mind goes blank when I can’t remember your name although I know that I know you from the past? Am I okay? Oh well.. no use panicking about it.. Life goes on eh?
I LOVE old English words. I remember reading the Canterbury tales in senior high school and Miss Purcell had us all take a try at reading some of a poem. I got a real kick out of it! I never forgot that time. So when I created this blog I gave it a nice “Middle English name. At first I called it ‘The Jangleresse’ but later changed it to ‘Alderbest’ which means “Best of All”. I planned on sharing my BEST thoughts, which I haven’t done very often it seems! Here’s a website where I go sometimes, but this was not the one I used at first, I would have to search for it again.
I haven’t visited WordPress in ages! I am so very far behind with my Book Reader Blog. I must have 5 books to enter! I haven’t entered anything in my Census Blog in a year it seems! I better get to work here.!
I used to have an e-mail address that started out kindarted@…… Etc. (Because I am an artist who often gave her artwork away), BUT I didn’t keep it very long because I can come across as bitchy sometimes. So I felt guilty for being an imposter, so I got rid of that handle.. LOL
Well we survived the Blizzard of 2017. Stella came and went and left us over 22 inches of snow. Thank God for the snowblower. My son was working for over 5 hours yesterday clearing the drive ways, sidewalks and paths for us, my father and the neighbor. I cleared off 1/2 the back deck, but the wind filled it in again. Thankfully it will warm up to 40 degrees by the end of the week and start melting this mess.
There are a few anonymous bloggers who “hide” behind their “Sweet” little cute-see blogs. One of whom posts cute little animal posts from time to time then he/she surfs WordPress blogs in their voyeuristic way. We know nothing about them, they reveal nothing about who they are. In fact they are COWARDS hiding in plain sight. They are CREEPY to say the least. Are there people out there who might want to see what I post? I know of at least two. Do I sound paranoid? Well it’s true I am..
