Month: August 2007

Goodbye August

I am so glad that August is over.  Gone is the month where Starla broke her cast.  Gone is a month of sickness and Doctor visits.  It is all gone. 

I really found this past week that I am capable of doing anything.  I think I am rediscovering the science of people.  This science is also an art that I once knew, but now I am rediscovering the way I used to appreciate it.

Romney in Iowa

For all of those Romney fans who feel super cool about the win in Iowa consider the following:

The three top contenders in the race, Giuliani, McCain, and Thompson chose not to participate.  Romney was competing with the likes of Huckabee and Brownback, names that garner a couple percentage points each in national polls.

Romney outspent his nearest competitor by 10-1.  Add on top of that the fact that this was a vote at a Republican fundraiser, not a vote of all Republicans.

Romney’s victory doesn’t seem that great to me.

Star Trek Convention

Mandy and I are in Las Vegas at the Star Trek Convention.   I know it is geeky, but we are having a good time.  Yesterday we got our pictures with Brent Spiner.  Today we will get to see Nimoy and Shatner.  Check out Mandy’s comments on the convention.

Starla Bones

Last Saturday evening my sweet little Starla fractured her right femur. I really feel sorry for her, she is at an age where mobility is everything. Now she has this massive cast on that forbids her to move around. Here is a scan of her X-Ray:

Where to go from here?

Sometimes I just feel as if I am attempting to do to many little things in life and I am not taking a step back to see the bigger picture.  Tonight I went with Mandy and Starla to the Clarke Planetarium to see a presentation at the dome theater.  The show was about distant planets in other solar systems.  My mind started to wander as I watched the show,  I thought to myself “Why don’t I still feel the sense of wonder anymore with my life.”  Has it become too mundane to matter much?  Am I really doing what i should be doing?  How do I enrich things more?

I know I can’t continue doing the same thing that I am doing forever.  The time for change is coming.  As to what that change will be and how I will execute it, I have only begun to work on the details.
