I love Joseph Campbell.

It sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving and a wonderful surprise that your daughter showed up/1

I like the idea of unplugging. I try to do most of my on line adventures in the morning and then briefly in the evening when I sync my FitBit.
Don't worry about whether an MFA in creative writing is going to accomplish something for you. Joseph Campbell used to say when you follow your bliss invisible hands support you and doors you didn't know were there open to you.
Had a marvelous holiday. DD called on Monday and said she would have to work all weekend and would not be joining us at the resort in the Ozarks. Thursday AM I was getting ready to join the families at another cabin for breakfast, when DD appears at the bathroom door urging me to hurry. What a wonderful surprise and a wonderful holiday dinner with 15 people filled with thanks and love around the table.

Lost 65 lbs and maintained since 2006.

Hi,

I have been enjoying spending time with my son this week. I made Thanksgiving dinner for my family and step family. That was an exhausting adventure but everyone seemed to like it and so it was very satisfying.

A few weeks ago, after spending over 20 years attached to the internet (I was using the internet before people had even thought about it) ....I turned the internet OFF.

I have been multi-tasking since people had a word for it. So, I turned my tv OFF.

This is not permanent. It is my nature to multi-task - to fill dull moments in life with things that iterest me.

But, it is good to unplug and turn off more often.

In the upcoming year, I am going to do my tracking and blogging in one hour a night. I am going to spend the rest of the time exercising, reading, and writing. I am simplifying the websites I have and turning them into wordpress sites which I am tasking my son with taking care of. I simply don't want to do it.

I am taking 5 classes next semester. I have to learn Spanish which I guess requires that i show my face in some classroom - so that is why I am taking 5 classes.

I have decided where I want to end up, which is an exciting feeling for me. I want an MFA in Creative Writing. Useless from a practical perspective perhaps but meaningful to me.

The crux of this is that I will not be online all day long anymore. However, I think the hour a day I do spend will be better spent. We will see.

I did create a website for book reviews so that I could eventually get free ARCS. I need to get 30 people to join so I am spreading the word and pleading with people to submit their email address and follow this particular blog:

www.zadiesmustreads.com/

So .... let me know ... how was your holiday ... what challenges are you facing ... what new dreams have you given birth to.... what are you thankful for ... and how are things?

Amber
