If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. - Ursula K. LeGuin

RBOC: Writing a Grant Edition

  • More great feedback from our grant consultant guru has resulted in me trying to get this grant out in a week.
  • Have been reading more than writing and while I love reading, I feel stagnated when I don't write.
  • I've been taking yoga and tai chi classes. Loving both but am feeling itchy without a more cardio workout.
  • The weather, general bad timing, and heating problems have kept me from the steam room all week.
  • Bought myself clothes today that actually fit. Although my size hasn't changed dramatically all of my old clothes were bought for my pre-40s body.
  • Pumpkin landed a great new job as a graduate assistant. She'll be making more than she ever has and learning cool new things!
  • Pumpkin is also in The Vagina Monologues this weekend but the show is cancelled tonight due to snow.
  • Snow is falling right now and I'm trying to stay warm and cozy.
  • Hair is cut and colored.

I love buying new clothes. Was this during your "Me Day"? I'm glad that things are going well for you!

Congratulations to Pumpkin! I love reading about positive things the next generation is doing.

And best wishes to you as you work on the grant. A week? Shew! Maybe things will work out with the steam room this week.
