Growing up in the 1970’s as a child I watched Little House On The Prairie, The Love Boat, Charlie’s Angels and Peanuts. Although I had a soft soft for Charlie Brown I really loved Linus and his blanket. I have a ratty blue blanket that I sleep with. It’s not that old from 2014 but between the three pups and I it has seen better days.
Linus to me was a kindred spirit. His blanket was his security against bad things and people to an extent. He was a loyal friend to Charlie Brown but also honest and caring. Lucy was such a strong presence that Linus struggled to find his voice sometimes. I think that was me in high school. There were far more Lucy’s when I went to primary and high school and I found it hard to compete.
It’s difficult finding one’s voice wanting to shout out “ here I am!” when anxiety and shyness and perhaps over sensitivity keep me from expressing myself more. As much I try to stand up for myself I allow others perceptions to creep in and influence me to an extent. Again I think it boils down to acceptance and aggravation that I’m not as self confident at my age as I should be. We all have our own security blankets that protect us and provide us with comfort and care. Linus is a giver.. he tries to be a peace maker and in his attempt he often comes up short sighted. But his trusty blanket always saves the day…
Stay safe stay well ❤️❤️❤️
