Wherever you go, there you are.

I am currently traveling in an undisclosed location (mostly) incognito. It's interesting being in a place where you know no one in a two state radius. A new experience it is. I am whatever I tell people I am.

The other observation of the week is about people and space. Some people should be launched into space. Alternately they could learn the limits of space.

When you are a house guest somewhere there is the question of "Where am I allowed and where am I not?" That's fine. Statements of "don't go crusin' around the house" normal and acceptable. When you come home to visit you parents and get told "You shouldn't be looking in the fridge without telling me." - That seems a bit far.

How about if ya'll weigh in? When a grown child comes home for a weekend, are they a guest or not? How should they be treated?

Forgive and forget?

Do the two words forgive and forget have to go together? Can I forgive and not forget? Is the anger the only thing that will prevent me from forgetting?

The slogan I've seen on stickers, tshirt, bumpers, web-sites is "We won't forget and we won't forgive." Over Tisha B'Av I was wondering: Who is "we"? Who are the we that are withholding our forgiveness and who are the we that need forgiveness?

Last I checked, we are the same we.

Personal Hurdles

While my blog tends toward the "I have something to say" side, I've been too busy to bang out real content. As it's late at night and the real world needs me more than the on-line one, I'll share some achivements of mine of late
  • Decided that I can keep moving.
  • Passed all my exams.
  • Finished a paper and am pleased with it.
  • Made damn fine fudge.
  • Haven't cracked.
I'm proud of myself. I also get to travel again soon so I may have better stories to tell.

BTW, I don't know who reads this, but I would appriciate people giving me even a tiny bit of feedback on my last Israel post. It was alot of work and I am interested to hear reactions.
