GFA-Giggle free alert. The following blog contains no text that may lend itself to possible giggles.
I have to write about three different incidents that have occurred over the last few months that have unsettled me. Each blog will detail each incident and I would love to hear if you have had any such unsettling experiences.
With Halloween around the corner what has been happening only adds to my sense of unease. The first one was when I was walking Buzz & Finn. I was minding my own business- as usual- whilst Buzz&Finn were inserting themselves into a neighbor’s business by attempting to enter their hallway when their door was opened.
As I was walking and admiring the flowers the ‘Consider the Lily’ phrase from The Life of Brian movie came to mind. This phrase was first coined the Danish philosopher ‘Soren Kierkegaard’. He was a fan of personal choice and commitment as opposed to abstract thinking and widely considered to be the first existentialist philosopher.
I was a Danish philosopher yesterday when I considered whether I should buy the apple or the pecan Danish.
Life of Brian-Consider the lilies
Here is a beautiful passage to illustrate Kierkegaard’s philosophy.
Upon rounding the corner of my apartment right in front of me a beautiful hanging basket fell to the ground. I got the Heebie Jeebies big styley. I began to try and analyze why it happened.
Was it my personal choice of the path I took to walk Buzz&Finn that resulted in this strange incident? And then the abstract thinking kicked in or was an unsettled spirit close by? I decided not to take any chances.
A dear friend had given me a gift of sage which I lit when I got home and also waved around the corner of my apartment patio towards where the hanging basket fell.
I was like a woman possessed and dearly hoped that no one was watching me. Or was the unsettled spirit watching me? Anyhoo, I wish it well if that is what it was.
All the best
