Bar soap is a great invention. It changed how we wash, when we wash and what we wash.

But it’s also a nuisance in a way.

What do you do with that little thin sliver of soap when it is mostly all used? Do you throw it away? Kind of wasteful really. Do you try to weld it to a new bar of soap? Not always easy.

By turning a new bar of soap end over end in your hands, instead of simply rubbing it without thought, you can wear it down into a shape that can be used for a longer period of time. It is also then in a shape that is easier to weld to a new bar of soap.

There are those who tout living in the now, focusing on this very moment, and ignoring what was and what might be.

Too much looking forward or backward can be a problem.

However, a certain amount of looking forward can help you to get through your life with a little more grace and ease. As in the case of a bar of soap.

I'm a writer. But I'm also a wife and a mom to a couple of fur babies. You could call me a cook (but never a chef, I'm not that good) and provisioner as well. Laundress? Yeah. Probably. I design jewelry and I crochet. But mostly I love to write. I love words and how they sound. I love their meanings and origins. I love stringing them together. And of course, I love to read. Thinking about it just now, I realize that what I love most is life and the people around me with a special place set aside for my wonderful husband, our adorable dog and our inscrutable cat. It's the world and the people in it that fuels my writing. So thanks to you all for being the amazing beings that you are.
