Being the owner of a blog can be exasperating. You know you should post regularly, avoid all forms of negativity, and provide the reader with useful and/or entertaining content. But life doesn’t always run along such sunny tracks, does it? Since the beginning of the semester I find my self continually bombarded by “must do’s” that seem to come from all directions. One project successfully completed means 3 others are demanding immediate attention. Human relations further clog the wheels of productivity. There are times when I wonder how long it will be possible to continue pushing forward on so many fronts. I spoke to my dad the other day on the phone – he retired (voluntarily) at 58 and was able to focus on what he enjoyed doing since then. I’m already past that age but have years to go before his sort of freedom will be possible. So, today’s blog post is a one-man collective sigh. I’m sure tomorrow will bring something positive (though I have to go to work on my day off…). So just read today’s post and realize we all have these sorts of days. I’ll sign off with a few photos that match the mood of the moment. In the world, but not of the world, so to speak. For the time being.
