In the beginning...

...were my words, and my thoughts, and my heading in strange directions as I begin 2011...

I may still do an occasional update on Beware of the Blog, but only when I feel more light-hearted than I generally do these days.

New friends are teaching me good lessons as I approach my 49th birthday and my 50th year. Some old friends continue to teach me as well, while others do not. Those who do not, sadly, will end up falling by the wayside, not that I think they will notice it happening. If they do notice and return to me, then I will know they are "keepers," and I will continue to hold them close. Otherwise?

Life is short. Too short. Not to be pessimistic, but realistically speaking, once I hit 50, my life will be past the half-way mark, and what will I have to show for this?

I feel a need to leave something of worth. What will it be?
