"As kingfishers catch fire, dragonflies draw flame; / [ . . . ] Each mortal thing does one thing and the same: / Deals out that being indoors each one dwells; / Selves -- goes itself; 'myself' it speaks and spells, / Crying 'What I do is me; for that I came'." --Gerard Manley Hopkins

We're Home!

Thanks for well-wishes below. We got back last night and were SO glad to sink into our very own beds.

Of course we all got sick. Of course this was while with older, not-overly-well parents. Pray for them!

My mother-in-law got good news about the cancer activity being reduced by half. They hope to have just one more week of every-day treatments and be able to cut back to maintenence treatment.

My dad is finally seeing a gerontology specialist this week. The drive is a bit longer than before, but on safer roads. I hope to hear something this weekend.

The YM is 16 today. I am not sure how he achieved this feat, but I guess we will have to let him continue to grow up now. :)

And I'm back at my office for the day, filling out forgotten forms that were due before I left . . . oops.

I don't know about 24, Sarah -- I've watched portions and it's so frenetic . . . maybe I'll give the season premiere another try next week, on your recommendation. I do know folks around here either love it or hate it!

Not my usual kind of post, but don't have time for several separate emails. Perhaps next week I'll find energy to post something worth thinking on.

Happy New Year to all!

i have tried to like 24, and it does have a way of pulling me in, but when it comes on again i'd rather watch something else... so i've given up on it.
