Luxury

Luxury

Luxury means different things to different people.  To some, it relates to things such as fine dining, cars, homes, furniture.  To others it is comprised of vacations, warm, welcoming, pampered.  While some luxuriate in a great read or perhaps music that invigorates the soul.  Then there’s the luxury of time and the ability to use it freely for whatever we wish.  What of the luxury of thought?  Or the luxury of freedom? Freedom to be who you want to be, do what you want to do, when you want to do it, with whom you wish to enjoy it!

Luxury whatever the ideal, brings relaxation, happiness, peacefulness to the body and the spirit like a summit reached, or a dream fulfilled.  No matter how large or small the scale, it is attainable, refreshing, and pleasurable.

Some would turn up their nose and yell it is selfish and meager and unimportant and lasts momentarily scoffing at the idea.  To those who reach out for the luxury of a pair of shoes, their next meal or a roof over their head, or a warm winter coat, or that last breath, or freedom of speech, it is meaningful and filled with relief, a luxury incomparable.

Most important of all is the luxury of good health with which we are able to partake in life, in simply breathing.

Muse

Muse

 

I mistakenly thought a muse equated a person you emulated.  So in that sense I guess I’ve never had a muse.

It was automatic in my world, or my thought processing, to cogitate on something heard or seen, said or done, from a half dozen different angles, and reach a conclusion.  And yes there were occasions when, it might take a considerable length of time, if it were a deep thought provoking word phrase idea or action, before I would come to a heartfelt conclusion on the subject at hand.

Perhaps I’ve missed out, not having a muse in the traditional sense of the word.  For I have always foraged ahead, independently choosing my path in the world seeking no other to bounce ideas off of.

Would it have enriched or changed my life in a meaningful way?  I couldn’t say.  Perhaps in the future I will find a muse, that person that I can sit with for hours and  examine ponder and rethink events in the world and their meaning.

For now, I am but a sponge, taking in, enjoying and being enriched by all the words phrases ideas and thoughts around me.  I don’t mean in an arrogant egotistical I’m right and the rest are wrong type of way, but in an open considering thoughtful way.
