Yes, it has been another year….well rather it was that on September 1st. And while that was a busy day, it was productive and portends well for the rest of this year and leading into the next completion of the next.
First off, there is a new script in for the contacts. Not that I have anything against wearing glasses, because I did for years, but there is a need to still have folks understand that the ‘strike zone’ as it were, is above the 38th parallel. Not being glib in saying that….far from it. Just it would be nice that some listen with their ears to what is being said, instead of outsourcing that to the eyes or even something a little more primal.
Secondly….the place has gotten a tad more quiet, thanks to some departures of those who were causing a few problems with the denizens of the plex. The timing could have been a little better…but it did happen before the school year. And this means that when I am tutoring folks at odd hours, it will be quieter. Well a little quieter, the Rae and Marty do play during that time as well. Not that I mind, they are my kids as well *S* …no different than those who I lecture and teach to. Oh yes, from last year, there have been a few graduates, a couple going on to advanced unis and other endeavors. A nice way of saying….ALL MY KIDS DO WELL!!! All backgrounds, all stations.
The past year has also, speaking of my kids and friends…some really fantastic friendships. The type where there are none of those artificial barriers that some actually thrive in creating, as a means of control. I do not operate like that…..if only due to the fact that there is a need to show a better example of behavior to Rae, Marty and those I am in circles with. Again, as has been said previous…whatever goes on here is 1/xxxxxx of all the other items in this life. And time is too short to be micromanaging same.
As for the pics being shown here….well one more year has yielded some improvements. The weight has remained low and the odd hours, along with just some simple changes in the diet and trips out on those lovely errands to play air guitar in the tea aisle have paid off. Now it is a matter of keeping this going for another 365 ….
Before closing this out….Rae still makes it clear as to which humans she wants to see around her mom. She is less concerned about items like race, creed, religion, gender status, etc. She has in her own way created her list, which she has, via other means mentioned to Marty about who their human should share those nights of Renaissance, the Moody Blues, Yes, Twilight Zone DVD’s, sunsets, etc. I hope she is right on all of this….it would make this and the upcoming years all the better….
So with that….and will save other commentaries for next time when there is a little more caffeine in the IV and the tank…..from the land of the Colourtini…enjoy the words as the pics fly through the air…
