Superstitions - Writings on the wall

Superstitions are funny things.
Some people have a bunch. And, actually admit to them
Some people don't have any. Or say they don't.
Some people are just plain neurotic.

I can't say that I don't have any (as I toss a pinch of salt over my shoulder) but I don't spend a lot of time dwelling on them. I fall into the category of not so much superstitious as neurotic.

In life I think we all need to find a balance that we are comfortable with. That balance of hopping over that crack (my mom's getting old. She doesn't need a broken back) and freaking out because you can't remember if you made this years elections for your health insurance (which means you might possibly have committed your family to go to the local shaman for a year until the next open enrollment). See? It's all about balance.

What I'd really rather think about is Stevie Wonder. BTY, he was awesome at the White House Gershwin Awards this year. You can watch it on the site.

Here's a little Stevie:

How's that for dodging the subject, Jen?

Want to read about others that have found that balance between superstition and neurosis? Head over to Sprite's Keeper.



  1. I knock wood, but I'm pretty sure that never gets me anywhere. Maybe it does and I just don't know it?
    I'm pretty sure I broke a mirror 7, 14 and 21 years ago though.

  2. You. Are. Awesome.
    Dodging the subject? Hardly!
    And you're linked!

  3. I never place my hat on its brim or on a bed...very bad karma for that.

  4. I always throw salt over my shoulder and will even do it for my son if he spills some.
