I should write a bit about why I chose to call my blog “No Ordinary Life.” For some odd reason my mind offers up bits of songs when I am in certain moods. For many years a common refrain was, “It’s a strange, strange world we live in, Master Jack. No hard feelings if I never come back.” It would pop into my head when I was trying to understand some odd bit of human behavior.
For the past few years I have made choices to choose a more simple and satisfying life. We’ve been working on our straw bale house, planting gardens, working from the spirit instead of the mind, and it puts me in a new place. Now I’ve noticed that the song that often comes to mind when I am having one of those extraordinary moments of peace or enjoyment is, “This is no ordinary life . . . . To be fair, I will promise to go and look up the lyrics and who wrote it so I can offer my thanks to the creator of that song.
So, no ordinary life. I could ask for nothing better.Share on Facebook
