Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

Life, or something like it

In the process of updating some things on my web site and blog, I have been thinking about what I blog for. I realize that the intended purpose I started this for has faded. This was supposed to be a place to chronicle life events and my feelings about them.

I fully admit I am often overwhelmed, which is why it takes a while to update sometimes. Honestly, though, there is a lot I should blog about except that I don't want to examine it too closely myself.

In reviewing the past two months of posts, I see nothing about the major depression I am coming out of that left me unable to do any academic writing. I do not see much, if anything, about Konal's difficulties at the end of the school year, nor of the injuries to my wrist and knee. I see nothing about my frustrations with his IEP, and only tiny bits and pieces about the fact that I am feeling a tremendous amount of guilt about letting my partner down for the school project I was supposed to have done already.

I am setting a goal for myself. I am going to try to post weekly- about both Joys and Sorrows. Thoughts about life, politics, religion would also be nice. I am reclaiming this blog as a piece of myself as of today!
