We were finally graced with our first snowfall in Minnesota.  I know a lot of people feel like they were cheated out of a proper summer as winter was slow to leave last time around, but I’m once again feeling renewed and refreshed with the drifting flakes.

With this first snowfall I made the obligatory adjustment to our sleeping quarters to accommodate the forthcoming cold temperatures ~ flannel sheets.  And even better than that is the most cozy, warm, fluffy feather bed.  Trust me, when you have a feather bed you’ll have a hard time getting up on those dark, cold, snowy mornings, but the six to eight hours spent cuddled up in flannel sheets on a bedding of soft feathers is worth the agony of leaving it for your day.

As I was making up the winter bed, I couldn’t help but think of a song from my past.  If you’re from my era you’ll definitely remember the artist if not the song itself.  Help yourself to this uber nerdy blast from the past, and if you don’t already have one think about picking up a feather bed for yourself this winter.

It seems a bit odd, someone sick or injured not wanting to get well. But falling in love with the hospital nurse would make any suffering worthwhile…I guess.

There’s been a sick person in my life lately, and although I don’t imagine he’s falling in love with the hospital nurses it seems he doesn’t want to get well.

Throughout the trials of the past two weeks I couldn’t get this song title out of my mind. The sheet music cover art for the song I Don’t Want To Get Well has been made into a magnet and is available in my Etsy shop.  Bizarre yet sweet. Sad yet funny. Take it anyway you want and if you want it for your own you can buy it right here.

The older I get the more I see the completeness of the circle of life. Most of the time we go about our business, earning our living, enjoying our friends and family. Sometimes life becomes so intense we don’t really know what to make of it. Emotions melt into each other to a point where we can’t even define what we’re feeling.

In the last week I’ve heard news of blossoming new life and have seen a living body become a nearly empty shell.  Through the happenings of these two opposite poles of life’s spectrum the rest of the world goes on, oblivious to the intensity of each event to a small number of people.

I can’t help but think of a scene from Twin Peaks where in a crowded bar Donna and James are falling in love and mourning at the same time.  Melancholy underlies bliss.  Agent Cooper personifies the conflict we all feel at times; he tries to put together the pieces of a mystery the same way we try to make sense of our lives.  The giant gives warning, the old man gives consolation, emotions give way.

Yeah, it’s all pretty heavy.  But life?  It is happening again…
