oh time is a passing

So, I am officially yet another year older.
Not feeling any different, but yet I am inching closer to the big 4-0.
Planning some fun stuff with some of my dearest friends for the year ahead, but right now I am focusing on me...trying to fix some issues within my life. I let things slide in the past year and want to change that. Plus I have my personal goal of being in better physical & financial shape by that next birthday...

9 years ago today something happened that changed our world.
When I logged onto FaceBook this am most of the updates from friends was about not forgetting. I honestly can't imagine that we have forgotten as most of those I know and love still remember exactly where they were. I was actually working for an airline at the time doing graveyard shifts. We sat in the break room watching the news in disbelief. The people coming into work right then were a mix of those who had just heard & those who found out as they arrived. I went home to immediately call all of my loved ones. I was in shock, trying to wrap my head around this event.
Now, it is 9 years later, I still can't wrap my head around the why of it all.
I am going to take this day as any other to celebrate those that I love, the freedoms I enjoy and the life I am blessed to have.

latest reads...

Been re-reading the Harry Potter series of late because I own them in HB and felt like if I moved them I should be enjoying them. I also have literally a mountain of books waiting to be read. I do have a slight bit of guilt over the sheer number which are sitting every so patiently for me to get to them. On the other hand, I feel books are to be enjoyed & I should not feel any pressure to read something just for the sole purpose that it has sat for too long, right?
Learning that life truly is short and thus I should do with my reading as I do with most of things in my life, just let go...
