- My Family
a. Those under the roof of my house
b. Those related by blood
c. Those related by relationship (Marriage, Civil Union, Domestic Partnership or whatever.)
- Feeding my mind, body and soul
- Improvement / care of domicile
- Civic involvement
I can understand why people in the past have resigned from civic duty. It is a second career. You cannot be a decent spouse, parent, employee and civil servant all at the same time unless you intend on having no time for sleep or the enjoyment of activities to feed and care for you mind, body and soul.
So, what is really important in life? Is it refuting message board gas bags and risk becoming one myself, or keeping track of my priorities? I think that question has an easy answer.
In an effort to at least remain relevant, my writings here will be more spontaneous, and off the cuff. I read something recently:
"Perfectionist striving can paralyze constructive action. Do something; you can always apologise tomorrow." - Jim Burgin
