Sorry, oh one follower of mine, I have been so busy. December spun by so fast, two consecutive days of grading, family Christmas party, Christmas Musicals at school after dark during snowstorms, family Christmas, New Years Eve, small procedure that required two, not one, but two days of fasting and drinking a gallon of salt water, muffler pipes falling off but not all the way off and dragging down the road all the way from Ten Mile road all the way to work, good memories to be sure.
Now, I sit at my computer finding ways to put off finalizing my plans for teaching the "New" class. I am very creative that way.
Just as full of angst as I was in 2008. Still trying to define myself by polar opposites. All the things I should accomplish, all the things I want to accomplish, all the things I haven't accomplished.
I have so many thoughts to share and ponder. I promise at some time I will get into all of them. One thing I have not figured out is why some people are so driven and some people are so content with life coming to them as it is, unaffected by personal choice. Doesn't everybody wake up in the middle of the night wondering when it all comes together? Doesn't everyone have a fear that they will get to the end and turn around to say "Is this it? Is this all? This can't be, I have so much more to do!"
So hang in there, friend, I have a lot of things to mull over, not right now, but soon.
