I'm newly addicted to taking pictures on my phone since I have a scandisk built into the darn thing. Taking random pictures is a new hobby, hence why I have been updating in pictures lately.
I'm a huge fan of language and words, but sometimes a picture can encompass so much more than any word of any language can. Just yesterday I took about 20 pictures of the Lincoln sites from random angles on my way home from work. It's funny, but I have lived here in Springfield my entire life for the most part and we are known for Abe Lincoln, yet, there are so many things that I have not seen or really taken the time to appreciate and see without jaded eyes. Perhaps it's a bizarre new scene, but I'd like to think of it as a strange way to catalog a life.
I haven't really taken the time to write about much of anything because honestly, I haven't really taken the time to think about much of anything lately....and that is a shame. There is so much going on around me that it seems like you almost have to take a step back and really watch and listen, instead of just being there.
Wrestling with the past has made me tired. At some point we have to move forward and I have with much of the things in my life. There are many things that I am sorry for that I can acknowledge now. There are people that I have lost contact with that I think about every day and hope that they are happy, because that is all we can really wish for for the people we care about. I look at myself in the mirror everyday and wonder what it is that I see, sometimes, I wonder when I will stop doing that.
I have taken on projects that interest no one but myself, simply because I want to know more about them.
All the house is sleeping, perhaps I should be too.
