Time and No time Again...

I'm starting to realize why soundbites are popular. It's because the modern world has eaten time with trivia, and the endless chasing of the machines... Hmm, I'm sounding like Countess Auralia of Chaillot.

I am working hard, and days fly past, with not as much accomplished as seems needed---but the workload is huge, and the people to handle it few. I take a moment to post here, else I run mad...

Somewhere in all so this, I will be trying to fit in some occasional yoga and dancing, as well. And more personal writing, as I have many more articles to go... And maybe a sewing project or three. I keep thinking of the lines of of the Warren Zevon song that says "I'll sleep when I'm dead."

If I'm busy enough, I'll keep outrunning the Grim Reaper for some time to come. At least that's how I think of it. Who is to say I'm not right?
