“Instructions for living a life: Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.” ― Mary Oliver
I’m baack. Apologies for the hiatus to those who actually missed me. What began as a break from writing during the pre-Christmas scramble (during which I run out to stores the week before Christmas to procure not the last-minute gifts, but ALL of the gifts, send out our Christmas cards, etc. etc.) turned in to a two-week-plus hiatus. We were busy relaxing, playing, cleaning, and generally doing a bunch of stuff we don’t do when we’re working.
Not that I didn’t think to write, but maybe it was the sense that if I wrote around Christmas or New Year’s I’d have to write about those things, and I didn’t have much to say on either topic at the time. But now I do (belatedly) thanks to an article on the Huffington Post shared with me by a friend the other day, titled: “12 Really Stupid Things I Never Want To Do Again”.
