I can't seem to focus on the Land Of Make-Believe this month. Old memories are rehashed and remixed with new ones, for a lukewarm October batch entries resembling Memoirs of a Nobody Internet Person. (Most entries so far do in fact start with an irritating, self-indulgent "I").

I always hated non-fiction, and it wasn't until adulthood that started gravitating to biographies, true-crime, and shit that I tried to avoid in my reading life (i.e., If I wanted to experience the Real World, I wouldn't be reading it, now would I?) Or so went the reasoning.

Sometimes I can't see the point of anything I accomplish. I do (and mostly enjoy) what's expected of me, the "mom" work, yet I'm just holding my breath, waiting for my real purpose to reveal itself.

Many things interest me. I was a college instructor and a journalist; I have a master's in English; I write and love to read... I get excited about all the creative people I meet who are doing their creative things, but I can't seem to find the one thing that really belongs to me. I wonder if I ever will.

Work is necessary to live. It is a tedious thing no matter how easy it is, because it is unavoidable. The exhausting thing about work is that it never finishes. Itís a race to beat the clock, and as soon as one hurdle is overcome there is another. I think when you get older you just want to end the hurdling and settle down to an easy jog; to complete each task without feeling desperate because there is more to do, and never, never enough time. Itís completely stupid and Iím not sure I want to play the game anymore.
