Unfocused

Got to talk with my mom on the phone last night (Dad was out at the bowling alley with the good ol' boys, in classic blue-collar Midwest fashion). I think she still worries about me being single, but I don't. I'm content at my best and resigned at my worst: in either case, there's little to be gained by focusing on wanting life to be other than what it is. That outlook has sometimes stunted hope, however. I could go on and on; it's a hard thing to pin down.

Have to work some today, which sucks. I'd really like to stay in the cave for another day, or even a few more days. I'll probably try to just get it over with right away.

Read a bit more in The Problem of Pain this morning. I do want to experience the joy of being finished with it, and of starting a new book. My attention span has been nuked by television and the internet.

The Cascades are beautiful this morning.

i hear ya, my attention span has definitely been zapped by this computer screen in front of me...
so i'm making a list of things i can do away from the puter as to stop drying my eyes out and giving myself headaches :)

finishing a book feels so good. what will you read next? have you thought about it?
I've started Cornelius Plantinga's Not the Way It's Supposed to Be: A Breviary of Sin, but I may add another to the queue once I finish The Problem of Pain. I'm tempted by either The Fellowship of the Ring (I'm unafraid of bandwagon-jumping) or to resurrect my old Christmas tradition of reading The Chronicles of Narnia.
