Now he was a master of symphony.
Today was very good. We went all over and got tons of stuff. Any day like that is awesome.
I was able to get a ton of stuff for my dancing. I couldn’t believe it, the first shop we were at was outrageous. Go ten minutes down the road and it’s a cornocopia of items! Oh, and on sale. What more can you ask for?
I talked to an old family friend today, I love talking to her. She writes books, too, so we usually have much to discuss. Even if it’s just complaints about how things are. She’s a few decades older in me, but in literary years, in her prime. She’s so wise.
Had a scare at the holidays, she has some serious health problems. It’s just tragic. She has such ideas and produces so much material, it’s unbelievable. I don’t know what I’d do if anything happened to her, she’s the only writer in this region whom I’ve known so long. Well, you know, the only author, I should say. One who produces books. She’s been giving me pointers and advice on writing since I was an early teen.
I’m waiting to begin my elective courses, I’ve decided to carry on with them. What better investment is there, really? Education in any form is the most lasting investment and you never know the full extent of the returns on what you give. Of course, it’s not only that. There’s something magical about learning, when you’re in the process, you know you’re NEVER too old or too tired to at least learn one thing. When you can apply that daily, suddenly, for every year you know hundreds of new things. Thousands if you aren’t satisfied with just “one” a day. I can’t wait to get my certificate, I’m so pround of completing it. I need a frame, if I just knew the precise measurements.
I still don’t know what I’ll do when I begin really amassing credits. Who knows? I didn’t even consider when I started the courses, I just knew it was something I could do, and something I needed to do. I am very much an “instinctive,” person. I like to make decisions based upon what my instincts tell me. I seldom question them, because they have always been so correct. It’s hard to distinguish between instincts and simple fears or hopes, but once you can tell a difference, you can feel much more confident about life.
Well, enough rambling for one night. Over and out.
