Random Thoughts with a Breathing Moment and Greenpoints

1. Got my first royalty check today. Cool.
2. Very busy with PTO stuff, but in a good way. It’s fun seeing people work together to make something great happen.
3. Finally almost done potty-training my youngest. Of course, now the real work begins.
4. A great big thank you to the folks at The Trent Wood Times for the article on Secrets of the Lotus that appeared today. I still remember the first time I saw my name in print in a newspaper. Of course, it doesn’t give quite the same thrill anymore as it did when I saw it all those years ago in The Transylvania Times. I wonder if that first time is what started me on this path, or if my path was already decided for me?
5. Breathing Moment: The moment when my daughter, who is suffering from her first cold of the season, informed me that “Hugs make my nose better.” I stopped what I was doing and picked her up immediately, and I’m so glad I did.
6. Greenpoints: Who am I kidding? I drive a tank that gets 13 miles to the gallon. Isn’t that basically like pouring gas out on the highway?
