In this quiet non-routine period that closes out one year and looks to the new, I find myself still with my thoughts, not quite to resolutions...yet. Still... is when silence emerges and self stands clearly. Still...as I sit by the fire, I think of these things. Still...
Still Loving: My Mini
Still Not: Buying Vista
Still Glad: I bought stock in Apple
Still Enjoying: Hiking & the mountains
Still Doing: Daily Blogging
Still Proud: of my 3.95 cumulative for grad degree in Media Studies
Still Amazed: at 2007's Challenges: Juggling a daughter's wedding, a move cross-country from NYC to Santa Fe, finishing grad school, three graduations, moving two kids to new colleges, adapting to empty nest and a retired husband.
Still Enjoying: my 3 children plus new son-in-law
Still Grateful: my parents are in good health
Still Wanting: a convertable Mini in seafoam green (which they don't make, oh well).
