Time to Be Bored

You know how some people (and I include myself at times), always have a big project going?  In my experience, it is important to have times without big projects.  You have to be bored for a while and see what emerges.  Also, the busyness can be a way to avoid feelings.

As I was sitting getting my haircut last weekend, I noticed that I no longer had brown hair.  It is now "salt and pepper."  I have noticed other changes such as really needing reading glasses rather than it being better to have them.  I am trying to take a balanced and positive view of these changes.  It does seem like an oppurtunity to slow down a little bit, enjoy life more, and refocus on what is important:  family, dogs, and creative pursuits like music and animal tracking.

When I Was A Baby

Aidan's favorite saying now is, "When I was a baby, ...." 

Seems to have come out of watching some DVDs of when he was younger and, I assume, some kind of development milestone of understanding that he is growing and changing.
