Everyday is a Winding Road
Why I keep paying dues to AuthorsDen is probably worth some reflection; however, until I do that I keep my own words on the bio page: "Life is a winding road of lessons and opportunities. Wear good shoes." Those words are working through my life more than ever right now since I'm in graduate school. About once a week I panic and ask myself, "Why are you doing this? You're too old for grad school. All your classmates are younger than your firstborn child."
This graduate school endeavor is reminding me of being a child again and facing those moments of feeling alone in a crowd. But I'm all about the lessons these days, both formal and those spiritually formed by the Cosmos.
This morning I got up and kept hearing Sheryl Crow's song in my head, "Everyday is a winding road." I've embedded the video up top so anyone who drops by will see where my head is. Most likely, however, no one will drop by that I know because I haven't had time to visit other bloggers, Tweet, or be sociable on Facebook, which sort of makes me feel like a ghost here, gliding with the winding streams of cyberspace.
