Plod. Plod. Plod. It’s not forever. It’s just for right now.

  6. The monkey photo is perfect accompaniment to Melody’s blog issues…don’t give up… through all the insanity…that appears first outside, then demands that we heal inside.

  7. I’m often like that – not in an earth shattering context like Melody Beattie but in my own little world crashing around my ears. But I’m still hopelessly grateful (I call it thankful but like actually grateful just as much – is there a fine difference I can’t grasp?)….
    The ‘banging’ monkey is just the ticket to those words…. I could actually think of a few ‘banging-on monkeys’ right now!

  8. Plod, plod, plod. Sometimes it does feel like you’re plodding forever and making little headway. Till you stop, look back and see just how far you’ve come.

  9. Hit one beat. Then another. Then another. Then another. And pretty soon, you’ve banged out a nice rhythm for a song. This reminds me of something I just saw in the movie “The Martian” which was a decent film produced off a great book. I plan to post something in that regard and I’ll let you know when it’s up. Cheers!
