A Revelation Upon My Return To Blogging: Snoopy Is My Spirit Animal

“My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I’m happy. I can’t figure it out. What am I doing right?”

~ Snoopy

I’m back.  And ready to challenge myself by continuing on with this blog, The Spectacled Bean. There were moments, while I was off in the real world doing holiday things, when I wondered if I’d return.

So easy to let this all go.


But then my spirit animal, Snoopy, turned up among the Christmas tree decorations which we keep in boxes in the basement– and I realized that I’d missed having him around in my home office.

As inspiration. Motivation. And protection.


Thus it came to be that the Snoop-ster and his ever faithful friend, Woodstock, once again found themselves sitting on this funky old chair which adds color to my home office.  And it is from this vantage point that Snoopy has my back once again.

Which, as you can imagine, makes me happy.  🙂

  1. Yey! You’re back! I love your new background. And the snow picture with the Christmas lights shining through is fantabulous!!! Snoopy and Woodstock make great partners…just love them!


    • Hi Beth! Glad to be back despite some trepidation about continuing on with this. I love that snow/Christmas lights photo, too. I had no idea that it’d be that cool when I snapped it.


  2. It’s Margaret–I had to sign up for a wordpress account for something, so it is easiest just to comment with it. I missed your perceptive and thoughtful comments and your wonderfully quirky posts, like this one about Snoopy. I think that’s what we have to remember about blogging; it needs to stay fresh and fun.

    • Margaret, thank you! I agree about blogging: keep it fresh and fun.

      [It’s not that I don’t have a serious side to my personality, it’s just that I don’t see the need to always share it here. Occasionally, yes. But for the most part, quirky is the way I blog.]
