The landscape is pitiful right now. The spring thaw is uncovering all the debris of winter trapped under layers of snow and ice. Looking at it, I know it will all bounce back and start to go green and warm. It's a good example of resiliency. I believe resilency is part of the reason why I'm still here and still (relatively!) sane.

This past season, more than any other, I've felt jaded and tired, at times discouraged by the state of affairs, of my life, the world at large. They say that you get less resilient as you grow older. Well, I've decided to disprove that. I don't hide or disguise my jadedness; instead I examine it and do something about it. I start by looking at what is working in my life, the people I care about, the work I love, and go from there.

Quietly, in my own way.

  2. Colette, I've been thinking about you. I thought if making a trip to Oklahoma when you are there. I don't think it is going to happen this year. Maybe the next.
