Backlog that is. I don’t like busy. I don’t do busy.

Busy is a lack of planning and preparation. I am feeling so unprepared.

My plan is to finish a degree by May 2013. I am currently uneducated.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. 5 week summer semester.

Can’t read this fast. Can’t write this fast.


Week two nearly done. Sucking it in. Pressing onward.

Looking beyond the horizon. That is where tomorrow is located.

Grasping the future in one hand and releasing today with the other.




About sturner2

I am curious, not fearful or unafraid. I have delivered babies into this world. I have held the dying until their departure. Life, what is if for? What is it about? Do I know or don't I? Knowledge is elusive and never complete. The more I know, the more I know I don't know. My boss once asked me if I knew what I was doing. "No sir," was my reply, "but that has never stopped me before." This is one of those valuable lessons my mom taught me. Just because you don't know doesn't mean you shouldn't. I am willing. I am not always able. I have heard that "If it is worth doing, it is worth doing until you get it right." Here am I, send me. What is there about me that is different than all the rest? Possibly not all that much. I am a soul longing to do more, share more and know more. Born into a body in 1960, my parents raised me and continue to show me. My wife loves me. My children teach me. My friends stand by me. I share in this journey with many others. I am grateful. I have experienced more than 30 years as a husband, more than 30 years as a dad, and more than 30 years in the fire service. I continue to grow, feel and learn; and too, I diminish, numb, and forget. In honor or disgrace, blame or praise, I am prepared.
