101 days of gratitude

I keep drawing and writing

Thinking of good not bad

Calms me down and settles me

Changes thoughts from sad.

Every day three things

Grateful for help from hubby

Happy traffic lights stayed green

That I only have a cold not covid

That you can be happy again.

So 101 days of gratitudes

Not room 101 and gloom

I’ll keep this diary of positives

To balance bad and good.

Singing!

I went to sing with Loud Mouth Women tonight. It felt like I’d never been away. Numbers of attendees were down. I think a lot of people have got the cold that is going round. I’m glad I went. We are starting to learn Christmas songs that we will sing at a small performance in a few weeks. Old songs just come back into my head. You don’t know how they go, and then suddenly the music and words pop into your head! We sang a combination song of English, Hindi, French, Hebrew and Latin tonight! It was 2019 when I last sang it but I still sort of remember it. I was listening to a science programme on the radio on the way home and it said that people can still recall the languages they learnt at school even if decades have passed. It’s because those memories are in a stable area of the brain. It was on a show called All In The Mind on BBC radio 4. It might be on BBC Sounds.
