Clearing out the cobwebs

I have a tall bookshelf in my living room, which used to hold my extra video tapes and my CDs.  I also had a stash of miscellaneous books and school assignments, from my different attempts at college.  A note:  none of the papers was written on a word processor or computer.  Each of them was hand-written, corrected, and then typed, with a typewriter.

I have enjoyed browsing back through those paper memories — one way in which I stayed upbeat throughout my life was through academics — I am a born student.  I read back over some of these essays, and I am impressed with my own work; that which took place when I was 29 and 30, and a student at the seminary.  I had, by that time, honed my intellect to its high point.  I’m there no longer, but I will be there again — my promise to myself.

So I find myself in need of a plan.  My mind has been filled with cobwebs for years, and I want to dust all of those corners.  I have kept busy over the years with Sudoku, which I love, but after 4 years in the easy mode, I need to step it up.  I am once again considering Adult Ed. classes, and perhaps even teaching a class descriptive writing.  There’s a goal for which to aim!

Now, to choose what I want to be when I grow up.

  2. Ahh.. yes Jude, always the journey. Never the destination.
    You can do anything you want, be where you want, just keeping believing in hopes in dreams. This universe has a purpose for you, that is why we walk these jouney. .
    You Go Girl!
