I like that I learn so much by reading on-line about what others know. I am rarely troubled by how little I know, because I, like the magpie, can somehow pick up a little ribbon here, and a little string there, and build a nest all my own.

I seem to be in a busy phase now--lots to do during the day, lots to do in my hobby life. I have that kind of outsurge towards interconnection afflicting me, which may be the result of the bloom of focus in my life.

I also see it is time for to be fired up, but first I must get the fire and the time.

I have plans,and I know how to use them.
