Let the Spinning Wheel Fly — December’s Sneak Peek

Blood, Sweat & Tears’ song Spinning Wheel has been spinning around in my head since I woke up this morning.  At first I thought there was nothing in the lyrics that is particularly relevant to me, but my husband pointed out it’s actually quite relevant.

Did you find the directing sign
On the straight and narrow highway

I’ve planned out what I will do for the coming year in order to harness all those ideas and dreams floating around in my wish list – I’m heading down the straight and narrow highway.

I thought the song was in my head simply because I have so much stuff spinning around in my brain.  Working on writing my book plus journaling the process through this blog has meant ideas are constantly spinning ‘round.  As I mentioned in an earlier post, I do a lot of thinking prior to writing.  I’m finding that trying to write a book, not just a short blog post, means I’m almost always thinking about my topic.  I feel my brain isn’t getting much rest and I’m not thinking about much else.

My December “someday”, in contrast, is going to be to learn about meditation and begin a meditation practice.

Drop all your troubles by the riverside
Ride a painted pony, let the spinning wheel fly

Yes, I guess the song is relevant and, yes, my brain will be ready for December!
