Monday Muse...

Laycie watched the water ripple as her thoughts tripped along, double time, triple time or no time, she just wasn't sure.  First tall then short, she spied tiny legs erupting in the tens of thousands from her small brown body, each shod with white bobbie socks and patent leather shoes. Wings unfurled from her portly little back impeding her escape into the wall, while the large white toothed grin of  danger danced her way.

"Feedyourheadfeedyourheadfeedyourhead,"  chanted her twenty siblings, whiskers flicking.

Perhaps nibbling on cheese marked with an 'Eat Me' sign had not been such a good idea. Where, oh where, was her White Knight?

A Day in the Life of Serena 
Song of the DayWhite Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane.  Clearly my Monday Musing has everything to do with this song...hehe  I had the most amusing thing happen yesterday as we celebrated Mother's Day with my mom.  Three generations of women sat on my mom's patio, Grandma(my mom), Mother(myself) and Daughter(darling diva), when Darling Diva asked her Grandma to listen to the song she just put on her phone.  I suspected I knew what song it was and couldn't wait to see my mom's face.  So begins the song "One pill makes you larger...." and Grandma gets that fond memory look on her face...the one that reminds me of the relaxed look she sported in my youth on nights this song would play around my house. 

While not hippies in the strictest sense of the word, my folks partook of much in the late 60's and 70's.  Hell who didn't(, but only cause I naturally lived inside my head, tripping with my muse regularly before I even knew her as my muse...then she was just my imaginary friend.) 

Anyway, it only took a moment for Grandma to identify that her 12 year old granddaughter was listening to the same music she had, oh, forty years ago. Shock, dismay and age flickered across her face with a tilted grin found her lips.  I can totally empathize with my mom cause Darling Diva will do the same thing to me at times.  Songs I immersed myself in as a teen will come out of her room or phone and I'll think back to when it came out...quickly realizing it had to be 30 years ago.  How time does fly...

  1. White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane. One of my absolute favorites. I cut my Awakening teeth on that song. It's magic every time I hear it.

    How wonderful that Darling Diva has found it.

    And fabulous 'flash musings'... yeah, that's one reason I didn't partake because I was already tripping inside my head. At times, I would get asked 'how do you do that' without taking anything. Or people would assume I had.

  2. Yep, it is a wonderful song, Savanna. The tune is wild and winsom; freaky and fun wrapping around lyrics that have you singing for days!

    I heard that same question a lot. "How do you..." I always asked them "How do you not?" I wished I'd identified it as my muse all those years ago... ;)
