It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Where Is My Watch ??

Don't you just hate it when you put something down and later come back to get it and it has disappeared ? Gone .. which is especially annoying when you live alone .. and cats haven't the energy to play mind games with Mama.

My watch disappeared.
It was there , then it was not.

I wear it every day.
I put it away in the same spot every night.
I don't take it off during the day when I am out of the house ...

It is gone. Yes, that small cracking sound you hear is my heart breaking just a tiny bit more.

It was more than just a watch.
It was given to me by my husband.
It was totally unexpected and different. It is a Movado .. all stainless steel with little gold screws in it and it fits my wrist so well that I don't even feel it.

Thus we have the mystery, did it fall off at home ? did it fall off in the grocery store, parking lot ?
Where is my watch ?

The only positive side effect to this loss is that I have dusted , swept and vacuumed every inch of this place to find it possibly hiding under a large piece of furniture ...
Basically I live in 3 rooms in a 3 bedroom townhouse .. with 3 baths and a laundry room and lanai and garage and ....aggghhhh... where is my watch :(

I have to go listen to the monks chanting, I need some help finding any serenity today ...

Wishing you a serene and sunny Sunday ...

**the watch was found. hiding in plain sight. All is well that ends well. **

Hooray! I was wondering what happened. Where was it?

I thought perhaps it had gone to join the keys to my cupboard, the ones I put in a safe place before we moved, and haven't been able to find since...
