It's tough to write these days... The horrors taking place south of the border have me paralyzed. I used to dream of such apolcalyptic style events when I was younger. They haunt me still. Like Anne talks of weight-lifting, I panic about being caught off guard and needing to run for my life. I started running again last Friday after two months off due to an injury and am thrilled that I can still manage.

My eyesight was my was another concern. I remember hearing when I was a kid that laser eye surgery would exist and lo it does. I am still not ready to go under though. I figure I can still see well enough without my glasses/contacts that the risk of totally messing my sight is not worth the potential gain. Maybe in a few years though.

Try as I might I cannot escape the media reports on the Southern U.S. and I don't quite know what to make of them. It's everywhere. Even on the TVs at the gym. I am angry, sad, and shocked. I think many of us are depressed on a very discreet level that we don't even fully recognize. And yet life goes on...

Meanwhile, I am like totally famous.
