 Wow. My journal needs a serious spring cleaning. Per my operating manual when things get tough, I disappear. Anyway...welcome 2009. 

The move with Mom is going pretty well, her apartment looks like a home now - it's funny how quickly that happens. 

I'm not going to articulate this well, I already know, but lately I keep thinking about how *not* extraordinary things are. Life...for the most part, is not as monumental or dramatic as at first it might appear. Movies and television precondition people to perceive events in their life, such as changing careers from lawyer to garbage man or moving from California to Texas, as somehow monumental. But change, I believe, is just change... I think *life* is mostly quiet. Drama, I observe, comes when people believe there should be drama. Changing your career, people are taught, should be dramatic (and probably traumatic) and so it is...Of course, this is all connected to my theory that things are generally what people *believe* they should be.

Anyway...just something I've been thinking about.
