I seriously have no idea where the time goes, I want it to slow down… I want to slow down, and I never seem to achieve that. I’m increasingly envious of the people who can spend an evening lounging in a chair, watching TV or reading a book, and just being.
The constant need to do something is useful when there is something to be done, but I could have time to step back and relax, if I wanted to, if I knew how to.
Mo Morgan has a new site, I don’t read many blogs these days, but he was corresponding via icq with Drew last night about it and one just has to go check out new sites with the comical range of web browsers we have here.
