Carol Taylor had a packed Saturday Snippets this week with some very interesting and weird and wonderful features.. for example do you know what a kangaroo word is? In common language but they hold a secret…some music from McCartney and Stevie Wonder, methane producing seaweed, a plant that can be eaten and used to scrub your back and an interesting piece on homelessness. head over to enjoy.

Welcome to Saturday Snippets where I indulge my whimsy and my passions… maybe a tune or two…something which has caught my eye this last week…just anything…I am still waiting for my Easter Egg moulds…shipped yesterday so they said…

There are many people with many different thoughts on homelessness…Homelessness is a huge problem in the world…I say ” There but for the grace of God go I “…These sleep pods are one such good idea…

The final post today is from author Alethea Kehas with a dilemma that millions of stay at home mums face as their children begin the process of leaving the nest. What comes next for me? A thought provoking post.

I had been dreaming about being at school. That is not unusual for me. Last night I was back at Bowdoin College, but it really wasn’t anything like the Bowdoin I attended nearly 25 yrs ago. Instead, it felt foreign and strange. I was enrolled in four classes, yet hardly even attended the lectures. I couldn’t seem to remember where my classrooms were, let alone the room number of my dorm room. The dream was filled with angst, reflecting the, well, let’s just call it a semi-existential crisis I’ve been battling these days: What the heck am I doing here and where the heck am I going with my life?

Yep, I know that sounds extreme and dramatic. And, quite frankly it’s something I circle back to from time-to-time. I’m now at the stage of life when my kids are nearly ready to head off to college. As they get ready to embark upon life outside of their childhood home, I can’t help but think about what that means for me.

Head over to read the rest of the post and to leave your thoughts for Alethea: I wake to a cardinal singing at my window after a semi-existential crisis dream #cardinal #parenting #midlife
