{this moment}

A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment.
A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Still Blogging

Benjamin Franklin Thundercat,
by Maria O'VanFarmer

I want to learn how to make collages of my photos for Chickenblog... Nikkipolani makes good use of them, and there are beautiful collages Under the Sycamore.

Jenn-in-California sent me an encouraging note, with ideas for Chickenblog. I think she's right... time to make ad space. I cannot say whether it would make a significant difference, but trying isn't such a huge risk. According to Google, I tried once before, and so when I recently attempted to install Ad-Sense I was turned down. Apparently I need to track down my original request and passwords, and start from there.

I feel like I am in a heap of neglect-trouble. Neglect trouble is the sheepish dread that comes from letting too many emails, errands, calls, and obligations go unanswered. It causes a stress build-up, which is cyclical and accumulates. The more I neglect, the more sheepish and dreadful I feel. It's not good. The only good thing I can think of is that I am _only_ 46 years old, and obviously far too young to be fully formed and responsible. Hopefully, in time, and with proper encouragement, I will gain skills, and overcome my deficiencies. In the meantime I have been introspective, analyzing my choices and trying to make a realistic assessment of what I want to do, what I need to do, what I am going to do, and what I hope will do itself.

Must adjust my sails, otherwise I will come to this!
