“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage” ~Lao Tzu
– just saw this on Twitter, retweeted by Boston Bibliophile. It’s a good one, yes?
Which reminds me, I don’t have time to sit here and twit away my morning! I can’t decide if I should leave to drop off the dog to daycare right now and then come back, work out and get ready to meet my friend Beastmomma. OR work out and just drop off the dog on my way to IKEA. So, I sit here checking blogs and hitting refresh on the Twitter Home page and it is seriously frightening me.
Good news: I’ve been ‘hired’ (purely volunteer basis = no pay was discussed) to help a teacher research gender issues in education. Anyone read anything on this topic recently? I’m sure she’s just wondering if I can dig up some books she hasn’t yet found. It’s all fun. I believe I remember Dewey reading and discussing some great books so I will check there first thing later today. (ha – that sounds funny.)
All the beautiful sentiments in the world weigh less than a single lovely action. – James Russell Lowell
And now, I feel I must address this quandry of my BBAW nomination. I have been nominated for Best Commentor (or is it Commenter?) Does this mean I leave the best comments or I’m just prolific? Whatever, it is humbling and exciting to be nominated and I know the others who are also nominated are incredibly worthy and deserving. It’s just weird now thinking/wondering if I’m commenting just to comment and get the counts up and at so many blogs!!! or just continue to do as I do. Know what I mean? So, I will just continue being me and enjoy the blogs like I always do. I will not campaign or try to buzz around everywhere but will attempt to visit and make new friends, cherish the ‘old’ friends and — ok, I’ll just shut up now.
