Don't especially feel like writing tonight. Don't especially feel like doing anything but sitting in the rocking chair and wishing it was somehow powered by something other than me, because rocking seems like it would take too much energy.
So here's some stuff that other people I feel like sharing this week, just because.
On the subject of families and traditions:
“If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people.” — Thich Nhat Hanh
Lifenut talks about Snoopy Thanksgiving at her house, and the importance of building traditions.
"You can’t begin a tradition without making some promises to tomorrow. Tradition implies a respect for the past and a dream of the future bright and open. It’s recognizing something good and wanting that same goodness for people they won’t meet for years ~ their children."

And... that's all I have got for you tonight, because I am dragging. Just plum worn out, from trying to accomplish regular things, like normal people, and getting about 1/1400th of what I wanted to do accomplished. :shrug: Must stop trying to make words work well together, because none of them even really make sense to me anymore. Nighty Night!
