I just got finished filing my tax returns. I'm getting nearly $1,000.00 bachk, including EITC and refund. Ain't Democratic administrations great?!

I contribute to a politically-oriented 'blog, actually. Maybe that's part of the problem: I'm so used to slamming local elected officials for their incompentence and greed and avarice that writing about something else is sort of awkward. Life is getting better all the time. A year ago I was living in a homeless shelter; today I'm rooming with a friend. Next month I'll be moving into my own place, a place for me and my cat Ikkis. (I didn't name her, she came with it. She doesn't respond to it anyway, but that's because she's deaf.) I started classes at a local college on Monday, which is a very big deal--had to withdraw when my living situation became itinerant--and the employment options for my chosen field of study are already lining up. Life is a beautiful experience. After all I've been through nothing gets taken for granted.

My life has been taking some interesting turns over the past year or so. I was living in a homeless shelter for four months last year, took a room with a friend, and my financial picture has improved so dramatically that I can afford a nice apartment! And I've gone back to college to boot! All of this just came together in a matter of weeks. The most important (remedial) lesson I've learned from all of this is to NEVER TAKE ANYTHING FOR GRANTED.

It's no stranger than the universe outside my own front door.  The good thing, though is that I can always hit delete or backspace if I type before I think.  If only I could do that with the words that escape my mouth.... *sigh*

'Blogging is an interesting passtime. I had started an earlier 'blog. A few people actually responded to it, so that was confirmation that someone is actually taking time to read these things. I take that as a good sign, in a way. Back in the '60s and '70s people were watching a lot of television. That was the big night out when I was a lad. Now it is the Internet. I like the interactive and social aspects of it, but it still keeps us apart. I really enjoy getting together with friends, new and old, gathering in a coffee house (there's a great one across the street from my apartment in Bridgeport) to talk, play chess or backgammon, read, discuss art or music or politics or . . . whatever.

It is indeed but it is life - reality - have to take everything with more than a grain of salt. So what brings you to the journey of blog? Hopefully good experiences or information and not frustration.
