Just because I

think it or feel it doesn't mean I have to articulate it. Lots of thinking/feeling things going on right now and while I would love to dump it all out somewhere, it just isn't appropriate. At least not for me. I realize there are some folks who are very forthcoming in 'public'; I am not one of those people.

I did post a bit about it on Facebook and my friends were oh so very supportive and kind, bless them, every one! But there is so much more and even as I am writing this, with all that is going on, I am crying. It's not the end of the world and no one died but my brain is full of good and bad thoughts. What are you gonna do, eh?

As I was scrolling through blogs this afternoon, I realized there are blogs that I read every word of, no matter how many words there are, and others that I scan perhaps the first paragraph and then click off - sometimes because the topic has no interest or sometimes it is a post that is too long. And if it doesn't catch my attention in the first paragraph I know I'm not going to be interested in the whole thing.

I'm that way with books as well. There was a time that if I started a book I finished it - no matter if I liked it or not. Not no more. I will give a book one chapter, just one, if it doesn't have my attention then - bloop - closed, done, finished, over.

Perhaps because I am old, subconsciously I feel that I don't have all that much time left so my patience is thin with anything that does not deliver instant delight. No time to waste here folks, no time to waste.
