Reading and Action

"A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting."

Henry David Thoreau (born David Henry Thoreau; July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862)

July 4th 2009

It's been a trying last few days. A friend is in trouble and needs more than I can deliver. Another friend I miss deeply and never seem to get the time to ever spend time with. The distractions of life are starting to wear me down. I sure need a break and one is not forthcoming anytime soon.

Sometimes things just don't change. I've been in graduate school the last 16 months or so and haven't blogged at all. I think I need to start again and get some things off my chest. The kids are great, Amber and Izzy are both growing so fast. Debbie is fine and I am okay, just too busy most of the time. I don't get much time to reflect much lately and that has taken it's toll. Too many things seem not to get resolved. Things left unsaid and thoughts lost. Oh well, today is mine for the making and I am happy that it's turned out so nice, so far.
