So what is this going to be? A little bit of everything I think. Maybe that's it. What I'm thinking. What I'm believing. I hope what I'm knowing. And why would anyone care what I think I know? There's no reason in the world that you should. But then why are you here? Cuz you have to be somewhere I suppose. I've never been here before. I may not be back. I might get too busy to care; time is short. That's fine. Nobody can deal with it all at once. There is a lot to deal with.

I try not to take myself too seriously, but I know I have far too much. So I'm trying to learn how to laugh again, as I had forgotted for a while there. Also I'm relearning to enjoy life; you know, like when we were kids. The biggest challenge ahead is learning how to love God with all my heart, and soul, and mind, and strength. This one is not really that hard when you know the truth. But along with it comes learning to love others as I love myself, and that one is, as they say, "a horse of a whole different color." I think I need to learn to love myself a little more, but the problem may be that I know all these facts about me. Sometimes the facts are simply wrong or they are just stuck in the past. I'm trying to get my facts to line up with the truth. As someone once asked a great man, "what is truth?" If he had only known.

Why I Haven't Been Here Lately

Okay, I borrowed this picture from somewhere on the internet, and I neglected to make a note of where it came from. My apologies if this cat is yours, however anyone with a cat and a computer has probably seen this picture played out in front of them before. Even if it (the cat) is in a different color. Mine's in black.

The real reason I haven't been here lately is that I'm taking a vacation from the blog, but since it is a weekend I checked in to see that the blog really was still here. Yes, I guess I miss it, but I don't regret my decision to take a break. It will still be a while yet, before I get back to normal. Until then check out my old favorite:

"My November Guest" by Robert Frost


My Sorrow, when she’s here with me,
Thinks these dark days of autumn rain
Are beautiful as days can be;
She loves the bare, the withered tree;
She walks the sodden pasture lane.

Her pleasure will not let me stay.
She talks and I am fain to list:
She’s glad the birds are gone away,
She’s glad her simple worsted gray
Is silver now with clinging mist.

The desolate, deserted trees,
The faded earth, the heavy sky,
The beauties she so truly sees,
She thinks I have no eye for these,
And vexes me for reason why.

Not yesterday I learned to know
The love of bare November days
Before the coming of the snow,
But it were vain to tell her so,
And they are better for her praise.

Hey Scott, thank you very much. (I don't know if you noticed, but that was my Elvis impersonation. Not bad, eh?)

Seriously it's good to hear from you, my ole' friend. Those are kind words. You, sir, are much appreciated! If you drop by again and you're in the mood fill me in on how it's going for you and yours. (Fortunately blogging is a very private means of communication, what?) If not then one of these days soon, I'll look you up, Captain. Talk to you later, buddy.
