I am enjoying the second week of my two weeks off (and trying not to fret over how quickly the time is passing by). I don't have regular internet, only my phone and can't respond to comments on my blog.

Today I am thinking of the joys and challenges of 2013. It was a good year. I think. My memory is spotty. I hope to live next year with more awareness.

Then again, someone on Facebook said there is an old saying that says if you have one foot in the past and the other foot in the future, you are pissing on today (oh, please do 'scuse my French). I surely don't want to do that. Today, now, are all I really have. Aren't they?

Well, as long as I have today, I do still have me, and my spotty memories, and my hopes for the future.

And so it is that I will trudge philosophically into 2014 and discover what adventures await me there. . .

(I suspect my photo will be huge and will make this post look wonky. I do not know how to fix that from my phone. I WILL fix it when I get home to my laptop! Oh, I may have fixed the problem just now. Or I may have made it too small to be seen. Whatever. I will try not to obsess about it and will fix it when I can!)

  1. it's very tiny Diane... very tiny...
    Great post.. and a great reminder. Thank you from another spotty friend.

    1. I'll fix it when I get home! Thanks!

  2. Annie, I was surprised the first year after Paul's death how little I remembered from the year. Some things stand out with perfect clarity, and others are gaping holes. What was I doing all that time? It's gotten better, that's all I can say. Each year has its own rewards and I try to figure them out as I go along. =) I hope 2014 is a very good year for you!

  3. I love this. I have a spotty memory too. I do not remember a lot of my trip to Washington. I am so thankful that my friend took so many photos.


Don't just sit there staring, say something!
