Yes, I'm still alive

Dear blog,

I'm sorry I've neglected you--but only a little. You see, although there have been things I have wanted to ask you (could someone please tell me what the phrase "any dream will do" means in Andrew Lloyd Weber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat? What is he really trying to say? "Yes, I've made a musical about a biblical subject, but don't go thinking that that means I'm a believer or anything. This topic means nothing, really. Any dream will do"?) and things I wanted to tell you (I'm studying like mad for the GRE, which I've signed up to take in September. Can't believe how many vocabulary words I've been using all the time, thinking I knew what they meant when I really didn't--cringe!). And, of course, I've felt the weight of my unfinished business of providing you my notes on the BYU WIFYR conference.

BUT the fact is that I've been happily busy and have had hardly any interest in spending the time to visit my blog (or anyone else's, for that matter). Not busy with anything all that interesting--just life. And I've always tried to keep my promise to myself not to let the documentation of life ever get in the way of the living of it. (Hence my tendency to forget to bring the camera to important events.) So--there it is--I still love you, but take my negligence as a sign that I am happy and living well.

And I promise to get back to the BYU WIFYR notes very soon. Some of the best are yet to come.

Good luck on the GRE. I'm so glad I did it B.C., but then, I'm not as amazing as you!

I'm the same way about documenting. I'm too busy living. Poor Eric doesn't get his fair share of camera time because I rarely think of it.
