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

Reading your list makes me dizzy, Brig. I feel for you! Don't worry about blogging, though. We'll be here when you get back. Best wishes on the grant. I hope life soon returns some quieter times in the steam room for you:)

I am relieved that "sleeping," "eating," and "breathing" did not make it to this list...

Semper fidelis...

There's never enough time to do it all; so you do one thing at a time. I hope the grant writing is going smoothly.
