Wow. I actually started to write a blog in 2009…only I forgot the title and couldn’t find it. You know the saying that nothing ever disappears on the internet? I found my old blog. The title was very close to this one – “Life is Like Juggling Hand Grenades.” I think that’s why it didn’t catch on too well. That, and the fact that (annoyingly) I did a lot of speaking! in! exclamation! points! which! is! ANNOYING!!! I think that I got sidetracked by the fact that a) I was taking ridiculously large courseloads of 15 credits a semester in the mistaken belief that I was Superwoman and b) by my adopted sister’s death. So it sat for…a long time and I almost forgot about it,…that is, until I met Kristi Rieger Campbell, who inspired me to get off my toches and write. Thank you, Kristi.
I found in one of the old blog entries this wonderful poem by John Gillespie Magee…and I offer it for your enjoyment.
