Zak, Hannah & Windmills

Yesterday was another family day. Grandson-Zak and Granddaughter-Hannah said, ‘We haven’t been in your musings recently…’ Zak added, ’What about my windmill…?’

Before Christmas Zak had been to Amsterdam with friends; pictures prove it… Windmills keep turning…

Musing… the children’s song…

A mouse lives in a windmill in Old Amsterdam. He gets a wife, has lots of children and grandchildren… the windmill’s full of mice…

It’s the story of parents, children, grandchildren… Us, Zak, Hannah… The family windmill keeps turning…

Pete came into the room. He’d been following the football news. Dean Smith has been sacked as Norwich City manager. A run of dismal football, poor form and disappointing results culminated in a 2-1 defeat to Luton on Monday…

He’d held the job for just over a year. Hopefully a new manager will be appointed soon. The football managers’ windmill keeps turning…

Hannah had her A-level psychology book out. She was reading about idiographic and nomothetic approaches to psychology. (I learnt two new words!)

As I understand it, a nomothetic approach focuses on the ways our minds are similar… laws and generalisations that can be made; the idiographic approach looks at us as different, individuals with unique, unpredictable minds…

Musing… the old song…

Round, like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning on an ever-spinning reel…

…Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind.

The mind windmills keep turning…

I enjoyed reading: ‘I cannot believe it’s 13 weeks to pancake day and already the shops are selling flour and eggs!!’

Last weekend was Christmas… next week end it’s New Year… children back at school/college/uni.. Before we know it will be Easter and Spring… Summer and holidays… Zak will return to uni., hopefully Hannah will start uni..

An then it’s Christmas again! Zak’s and Hannah’s windmill keeps turning… individuals with minds, families with their joys and complexities, the rhythm of nature and seasons… their windmills, their lives.
