Aerating your Lawn: A Metaphor for Life

As I approach my one year blogging anniversary, I thought it would be fun to share some of my early stories, that never saw the light of day, with my fellow writers.

Last weeks blogpost was heavy…very heavy.  It felt good to release that part of me.  An incremental speck of who I am.  I’ve been called an old soul, philosophical (much to my family’s chagrin at times), and I recently learned from a Huffington Post article that I am an introvert!  Imagine!!!

  2. And I also like the new gravatar, Karen – so you done good twice, mate ! 😀

    1. Why thank you M-R – it must be my lucky day. Perhaps I should buy a lottery ticket! 🙂 ~Karen~

  3. Nice to know even we “old souls” (or so my Mom called me) can learn something. Have reblogged the original over to my…approximately two-year-old….blog. http//bythemightymumford.wordpress,com/ Congrats!!!! I find this all refreshing!

    1. Abundant THANKS, Jonathan! Glad it refreshed your “old soul” and young spirit! ❤ ~Karen~
