As I was reading it, a line from the book jumped out at me. I read it out loud twice. And then I wrote it down in my notebook (I carry notebooks with me everywhere).
“All this sameness leaves us blue and makes us ache for something new.”
Newness is what I’ve been craving lately. New foods. New places. New faces. If somebody offered me a condo in a new city, I’d probably take it. I’d have to take my three favorite people though (they are PART of me).
My 3-year-old has the same “itch,” I think. Today, she asked to make “a brand new craft – something we’ve never done before.” When we went on a walk, she said, “Can we go a new way? – somewhere we’ve never gone before.”
I think tomorrow we’ll make a NEW kind of cookies. I’ll play a NEW song on the radio. I’ll think up a brand NEW craft to do. Just because. Because it’s spring. Because we can.
Do you like trying new things or do you prefer routines?
ALSO: please tell me your new favorite song or craft idea. I’m looking for inspiration…
