Time has not been on my side lately.
I’m not meaning that in a pessimistic way or anything, not by a long shot. Let me put it this way, having increased responsibilities as a single parent and a full-time job do not make much time for blogging. Not in the previous format, at least.
Beginning today, I will try (emphasis) to publish short and simple articles, and utilize the polling features more to enhance interactivity between readers, as well as update some of my previous ones.

Every observer interprets things differently.
Eat, Pray, Love (EPL) seems like an uplifting story of someone who finds a new sense of self and goes seeking to create a bigger life.

My current 9-year old daypack is showing its age, to say the least. Though it’s held up really well, my needs have changed and so has the load my pack needs to carry.
