Sunday is the time to connect with myself. I did not go to the UU church today. When I think about going, I kind of shrink inside myself, and it doesn’t seem like a good idea to step back into that, you know? I’m looking for ways to connect, not things that I cringe away from.
Sunday morning often makes me think of this song – Sunday Morning Coming Down. Kris Kristofferson does a lovely version of this, as does Johnny Cash. I’m grateful that I’m not living the life he describes, but I do love the song. And Kris. I think Lucas might look a little bit like Kris…
So then I went looking for songs with Sunday Morning in the title and found this by The Velvet Underground. The name of the band struck a chord with me, but I don’t know why. When I look at their songs, I don’t see anything I recognize, and the Sunday Morning song didn’t do it for me. I did run across this treat:
You don’t hear that everyday, even on the oldie channel! (Walk on the Wild Side, by Lou Reed.)
I am looking at my schedule – Sunday is also planning day. Sunday and Monday morning. I can begin to see how I might be able to build in some structure that would work. (That would be nice, right??)
It’s funny, I met with somebody yesterday who was telling me about a job opening where she works – contract, not employee, which might work for me. She told me to email her and she’d send me the link to apply. So I emailed – and have heard nothing back. Shrug. I’m trying to decide whether to reach out via text today or wait til tomorrow. We’ll see. It sounded like an okay opportunity, not something that thrilled me, so if nothing comes of it, that’s ok too.
We pretty much have our Thanksgiving plans in place, and they’re simple but pleasant, so that’s good.
Listening to more music from back in the day, You’re So Vain, by Carly Simon and Maggie May, with Rod Stewart of course. I was a big Rod Stewart fan. Brown-Eyed Girl. So many songs…
Today, I am able to feel myself, centered and steady, whole and resourceful.
