haven't posted lately

I haven't posted since last week. I have a number of other things going on, so haven't read too many online articles. Here's some of the stuff going on in my end of the world:
  • started a blog with Mom and Sis on what we're doing for exercise; Sis actually started the idea with email, but I'm a blogger possessed, and moved the communications
  • have been working on being more loving with hubby
  • have been cleaning out the home office - yuck

However, I still have a little bit of a book stack. I put the Richard Dawkins book aside temporarily to read Tuesdays With Morrie. The author seems to be a "death" writer. He also wrote The Five People You Meet In Heaven, which I enjoyed much more.

I didn't know such a person or set of philosophies existed, but there truly is a sentiment out there that talks to the idea that you should think of what you would regret if your life were coming to a close, and work to fix those possible regrets NOW. It is quite interesting to me, but I don't think I'll start a trend with "death" literature just yet. The one thought is good enough for me to ponder for now.

Suzanne - I read Tuesdays with Morrie and liked it. I'll have to try the 5 people if it's better.

Your blog is looking great by the way!

oh, I liked Tuesdays with Morrie very much, and couldn't put it down. I liked the fantasy nature of the 5 people book better, though.
