I think that work sucks the creativity out of me. Notice, back last summer, when I wasn't working and still getting paychecks for teaching the previous year.. ahhh.... notice, THEN, that I had (relatively) interesting things to write about. Ah well, we must pay the bills, eh? Or be bandits. EIther way.
Currently I'm sitting in Adam's office while he studies. I'm sitting criss-cross applesauce on the couch and Powers is leaning his head on my knee taking a nap. We've been making an effort to go to the YMCA almost everyday- I think it's the antidote to the winter blues. It definitely helps even out my mood.
I just finished this book:
Folks, it's sad. But it's also mesmerizing. I don't know how else to describe it. But the writing is absolutely beautiful. The book is about a hastily made decision that is hidden. The power of a secret.
Thanks to my great mom-in-law who mailed it to me and keeps me in the books- Gracias!
