The last month has been downright hectic, to be honest. I’d devoted too much of myself to too many tasks, and it shows now that I’m through with them. Soccer coaching, ghost tour in Salem, promoting my Dad’s book, and following presidential politics. Through it all, though, I learned a number of things about myself that — perhaps — will help me better focus my energy in the future.
- I love my family more than any activity or extra source of money
- The world of letters is a world in which I want to belong, even if it be on an ad hoc, hobbyost basis
- The world of sports — even kids’ sports — is not one in which I excel
With those lessons learned, I believe I can venture forth in the world with more confidence and pride than before, but also with a greater humility: I know where I stand. I know in what I believe. I know wherein my battles lie.
Until next time…
