Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    Great article, Jody - I had thought the situation was too complex now to summarise concisely but you've both done that and made it humanly interesting. Great writing!

    Thanks guys.

    I wrote three different versions of this before it was all said and done. I can only use 400 words which makes it challenging.

    The first version read too raw, and I figured people would discount it. The second one was my thoughts but not enough information. The third was all information (who did what when) but that was all. I was going to submit that one though because I also felt like it's all too complex for me to be able to make it clear in 400 words -- especially since the whole point is -- it's not clear. Nothing is clear.

    My husband encouraged me to blend version 2 and version 3 and ... there it is. :Retro smile:

    gosh darn it, that was good: personal, using metaphors, a thread throughout, yet short and direct.

    I'm impressed.

    Thanks, Jody. Nicely written. As was the previous article, "Ten Ways to Handle the Isolation".
