So, we still have our electricity, and we still have enough food for the whole Corleone family to go to the mattresses for the rest of 2008.
Sister Sue had a weather-related disaster today, so I played some Slingo with her tonight to get her mind off it. I also tweaked my website, put up the banner Charlie finished and changed the background color. I'm very pleased with it. Now I have to move on to the query letter and researching agents. (Oh, and it might be nice if I re-visited the damn novel itself.)
I cannot believe Christmas is just three days away.
Today I'm thankful for my faith. My faith in the world, despite it's flaws; my faith in a higher power, which may be God or a universal consciousness or may just be our own inner strength; my faith in the sun to eventually come out and melt the ice; and my faith in myself to set and reach my goals, whether they're personal or professional. Last night I watched the second half of a bio about Martin Luther, and it reminded me of the fine line between faith and fanatacism. The latter is sometimes necessary to exact real change.
