See what happens?

When classes begin, I drop off the face of the blogging planet.

And now that classes are also beginning for 4 of our 5 children, I'll be even more of a blog basket case. Ah so.

I've decided, by the by, that I am one of the most selfish people I know. I've been analyzing my behavior of late, and I've come to the uncomfortable realization that almost everything I do is for me-- in one way or another. It kinda makes me sick to realize it, but I think it's more than a little true.

The funny thing is, that's not the way I want to be. Being all wrapped up in myself makes a pretty small package. Really.

Sad, too.

So. What am I going to do about  it?

I don't know yet. But I do know that I'm going to give it some serious thought and make a plan.

More on this before long, I hope.

Selfish how? I'm fascinated. You teach, you do your calling, you help with your kids. What is it you do that's so all-fired selfish?

I hate when I have an epiphany like the one you just fell into. I've done it many times. You find out something about yourself but don't quite know what to do to fix it. See if changing your hair style will give you any solace. Unfortunately it didn't work for me.

Goodness Clark, unless you've changed tremendously I doubt you're selfish. I guess I too am fascinated by your post; it just doesn't jibe with my Clarkbar memories. I like Clint's suggestion and I think you should add a bow tie, just for kicks.

I'd try to figure out what your blog post is about, but what's in it for me? ;)
