Around and Around


I’ll be the first to admit it. I’m cheating. But it’s a lazy Saturday and I’ve already posted twice today. So deal with it.

How am I cheating? Well, when I saw today’s one-word prompt, “circle,” I immediately thought of Joni Mitchell’s song, “The Circle Game.” But then I remembered that I had already used her song for another one-word prompt, “carousel,” a few months back.

So I tried to think of another way to incorporate the word “circle” into a post, but my mind was stuck on Joni’s song. So I figured, what the hell, I’m going to recycle that earlier post for today’s prompt. If you like Joni Mitchell, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it, even if it is a rerun. If you don’t like Joni Mitchell…well, you obviously have no musical taste, so who cares?

The older I get, the more I feel that the years are going by as quickly as revolving doors or merry-go-rounds.

In fact, I’m reminded of Joni Mitchell’s classic song, “The Circle Game.” You know the lyrics, right? Sing along:

And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We’re captive on the carousel of time
We can’t return we can only look
Behind from where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

If you’re not familiar with this song, take a moment to listen. You won’t regret it.

    Hey Sensei, have you and Jim increase your posting of posts? 3 posts per day that’s a lot. I missed two days and a night, in btw you guys are posting like crazy. Good for you. Keep writing but I won’t be able to respond as frequently as I have in the past. OK.

      Hi Sight. Yes, I should cut back to one or two posts a day, but I’ve gotten hooked on various prompts. I need to be a bit more discriminating. Don’t worry about responding. Focus on your health.

    I would have done the same thing, but I was embroiled with my computer and talk about CIRCULAR. Oy.
