No Life Rehearsals

Live, Love, Laugh–Your Life Depends on It

Ch, Ch, Ch, Ch, Changes and New Year’s Fixes

Change-David-Jakes“The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind…” –Bob Dylan. Yes, I know my headline is David Bowie but Dylan is still the master.  I have to admit it’s been awhile since I’ve listened to Dylan and, yet, his lyrics come to me at the strangest times.  So why did I think of Bob Dylan in this moment?  I guess it’s because I’ve been trying to come up with an answer:

Where is this blog going?

What do I want to do with it?

Why do I even have it anymore?

And, just like the Grinch, I puzzled and puzzled over these and other questions til my puzzler was sore.  But, unlike the Grinch, no answer has come to me but could that be, itself, an answer?   Change is hard.  Case in point–New Year’s Resolutions.  Why do so many of us come up with New Year’s Resolutions each year and then pretty much fail miserably at each and every one. Year.After. Year. After.Year.  Change is hard mixed with a never give up spirit! That’s right.  Never.Stop.Changing.

For me, not fixing (or at least trying to fix) is not a option.  Scandal’s Olivia Pope and I are cut from the same cloth (no, not fashion cloth unfortunately!).  I, like that wonderfully conceived Shonda Rhimes character, consider myself a “fixer” of problems. To not fix, is to not be in my book.  The fixer gene is strong in me, a familial trait, one I’m proud to carry on.  My mother, of course, being a master fixer in her day.

So, the fix is on.  In the weeks ahead, I plan on making some changes, some tweaks to the blog.  Please stay the course, keep coming back, and  hopefully this blog will be bigger, better, stronger, faster.

If your time to you is worth savin’ Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone. For the times they are a-changin‘ — Bob Dylan.
