Dear friends and family,
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. This course I am in is challenging and I am not nearly as sharp or as competent as I would like to be. There was a time when I could ‘out-concentrate’ any lecture and simultaneously start applying it to multiple concepts so that it would stick in my head. Not so much right now.
There was a time when I actually could get myself across town and early to class- in spite of the transit system or limited U of M parking. Somehow my frozen fingers are keeping tandem with my brain- so that I drop keys, parking money, mitts, my phone, have to run back for my house keys, trip on the dog, spill my coffee and – even if I set my alarm an extra half hour earlier- STILL wander in 5 minutes late.
Turns out- sometimes a person can be late even if they have the utmost respect for their instructor or the complexity of the material. Turns out lack of concentration isn’t just about a lack of effort.
Turns out – I may be juggling- but a ball or two may be dropped along the way. Still, fumbling- stumbling on, I keep on. The goals are worth it.
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I need them.
