wednesday contemplation


I think I can safely say that this has been a week of incredible low points. I would really love to write something witty and nice here in blog, muse about colours and yarn and bobbaloos and Stockholm, Sweden questions and perky giveaways. And shoes and castles, cats and dogs, good food and really fantastically good news.

But for now I just can't, things that happened today - people that have such dull, pathetic, futile, unfullfilled lives of their own that they rejoice in talking a lot of rubbish behind others' back, assuming one person is telling the truth without having even made an effort to hear the other person's version and spread rumours that are so far from the truth, I feel nothing but the uttermost contempt for those people - have left me drained, jaded, tired. Angry and sad. Such stupidity and inability to distinguish right from wrong and instead simply relish the talking of utter crap. Ah, the problem with common sense is that it's far too uncommon.

Life just seems a bit too lopsided right now.

And I desperately cling to the really good stuff, like the fact that there are inspiring, kind people when and possibly where you least expect it. That there are actually anonymous blog stalkers dressed as Easter bunnies who send unexpected and most precious of gifts (above, more of raspberry preciousness later). That's seriously sweetness and I can't say thank you enough. Really. Really. Very much.

That there are lovely blog readers who take time and consideration to leave the dearest of comments. That I often smile in delight when I do the comment moderation on train in the mornings. A most pleasant way to start commuting mornings.

And that I, very unexpectedly, the other day stumbled over that yellow submarine tea-strainer I've been wanting to find for so long. Shadows, gloom and doom may be lurking. But the power of a good tea-strainer (and good tea) should never ever be underestimated.

I found your blog through the 'Blog of Note' page a while ago and have following your anonymously. I thought I should probably comment sometime and let you know how much I look forward to reading your blog posts every day.

Your love of pets and tea and cakes and the earth are also very near and dear to my own heart. I feel like I'm talking with a good friend when I read your blog.

Thank you for writing so faithfully!

Well, I qualify for "people that have such dull, pathetic, futile, unfulfilled lives," but I don't rejoice in rumour-mongering and cattiness, etc. Everyone struggles to some degree in life, and even lives that seem "perfect" on the outside will experience suffering at some point. What's that expression? We're not here to see through one another, but to see one another through.

Here's hoping you have a better end to the week!

And that submarine tea strainer is unique and adorable. Surely a "happy!"

Love the tea strainer.
It is a wonder to me that intelligence is limited, but stupidity is not. And gossiping in a nasty illinformed way about others is a form of stupidity in my book. Fingers crossed for karma, and the small things that soften the hard edges of the day (think chocolate, pets, colour, creativity).

Like katie I've been reading your blog for awhile, but haven't commented before this.

I'm sorry that life is difficult for you right now. I know from reading what you've written here in the past that you will learn and grow from the experience-- lousy as it may be.

Perhaps a cup of tea is in order right about now?

Angella said...

Even when your mood is the lowest, your posts still brighten my corner. :) For what it's worth, there are those of us that follow your blog daily and I never feel like I am wasting my time in doing so. You have a gift, and I'm happy I stumbled across you.

P.S. The rumor-spreaders will soon have another one to whisper about.

We all have times when things that happen in life just get us down.
Your yellow tea strainer reminded me of this story I read:
I thought you might enjoy it.

I've only recently become a follower and as many others before me have said, you make my world a brighter, happier place when I read your blogs. Sorry you have to go through this, but, as my mother used to advise me, "Sticks and stones," my dear, "Sticks and stones."

I'm sorry to read about these people impacting negatively on your life and mood. Sadly they are everywhere and we must learn to live with them, but not give them value in any way. Your strong, I know that, I also know there are days when such idiots get to you. Contineu to be strong and true to yourself. I admire your honestly always. Thinking of you with great fondness.

And yes, a good cup of tea accompanied with a piece of cake is sometimes a lovely way to perk you up, especially with a tea strainer like that - can only make you smile.
