I have missed writing in my blog. This is my life, I get on these tangents. As my world keeps turning, I go down different paths for a while, like spokes on a wheel. Blogging and selfies are today’s journals and diaries of yesterday. People have always needed to record in some manner the things that we experience. Maybe it is just a way for us to self-check and find meaning for ourselves. I find my thoughts are whirling and swirling in many directions.
Today for me, I was reminded how much I miss this because my friend Erika, did her “thing” today. It was so refreshing it made me miss writing my blog. I haven’t updated with a post since 2015 Aaaaaaccccckkkkk!!!!! So why not plop down and meander through my messy head.
It is summer 2017, I am on vacation. I haven’t gone anywhere, just simply stopped working for the time being. That is a perk for working at an elementary school. You get to periodically just stop working and vacate your office full of paperwork and never-ending mindless little tasks that when all put together, give you meaning in life. I actually love my job and the people I work with. So come August when we are all back together again, it will be a celebration. These people become family.
In the meantime, I have had some very memorable real family experiences with the 2017 version of the Chin Reunion (my mother’s family). A truly amazing 3-day get-together. My mom is one of 18 children and there are now 5 of generation one remaining (four of them were able to attend.) But we cousins (generation two) and our children (generation three) put on a great reunion and we aim to keep generation four knowing and loving each other to keep this going. At some point they will “need to want to do this” and believe in their hearts that family is worth it. This is us (or at least about 2/3 of us.) Click photo for a better view.
