Life has been busy the last...how many...years. Busy really doesn't do justice to the changes that have happened since my last post in this blog. It's not that I haven't thought about the blog. Honestly, I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted. I also didn't remember my user name and password. Then, there it was at the tips of my fingers, those letters and numbers in a series that I typed regularly but then didn't. There they were and open, the blog did.
Looking at my last post, I remember thinking that the A-Z challenges were fun but I wondered if I would have time while changing everything in my life? The answer was no. I didn't have time. I didn't even consider adding any writing to this blog until yesterday. I have a moment to reflect but just a moment. It appears that if change is like swimming. I'm still in a deep dives and swimming under the water line. I'm up for a couple of days but the calendar has the next bit starting in a next week. No rest really. And I am tired but changing everything takes some time, takes some effort. And I wonder if it will be worth it?
A hope is that I'm able to incoroprate blogging again as things settle into a routine. Which is absolutely hiliarious because there is no sign of routine or settling... but the hope is there.
I am updating a variety of projects that are momentarily off the back burner... just to touch them... just to see if there is viability in the past efforts to revive some of the energy and thought, to spring from the applied movement bringing forth something sweet...it's a question...
Additionally, Goodreads now has some of the books that I've read over the last few years...some titles are lost but will perhaps come around to my memory to get added to the list.
My reflection for this time is to notice that lists are good and that making lists of things done is a good way to remember what has happened. Often I use lists as a motivator to prompt action forward, then once checked off, the list is discarded. I'm thinking that a better way to approach lists is to have two lists: prompting list and a reflection list. Why? Well, twice in the last week, I've been asked for lists of things done in the last year and in the last five years. Outside, I said, Okay. Inside, I laughed because a list of what I did in the last week is troubling but for the last year and five... I'm having to go to artifacts to write the list... so I kindof wish I already had developed this habit of past listings. I'm wondering how useful it will be to list the done things? Will it be worth the time? Will a folder do as well? Should it be a journal or a spread sheet or a claendar? How comprehensive should it be? Should it actually be more than one list or perhaps a list for each recurring category? And where will the time be found for this type of record keeping?

Zillion, first documented in the 1930s as a jocular alteration of million, billion... because really, who needs a billion anything?
Are there a Zillion stars in the sky?
Zillion is hyperbole... an exaggeration.
Wishing you a zillion successful moments in your life.
