"They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself" Andy Warhol Change is good and I have always embraced its elements by seeking to improve upon my environment and myself. I have always sought to be in control of the changes in my life and sometimes I succeed and sometimes I don't.  Sometimes I can only be in control of how I deal with change: Change is again upon me in the work arena and again I embrace its newness of opportunity and learnings ... bring it on I say.  Sometimes I have to be in control of what I change: In my personal life, I have realized that there are certain elements that cannot be counted on and that continually disappoint me to the point that I expect it. You know who you are unless you are too obtuse to even see beyond who you are. Please realize that I have waited around without apology for the last time and today no longer brought anger even, just acceptance that I can no longer put myself in a position to feel that I am nothing more than a tick to flick off of your scalp. Later babe. I am taking control of this one and looking after myself by eliminating those things in my life which cause me undue stress and grief in my environment because "things do not change; we change" Henry David Thoreau.

And now I am going to spend the evening with my baby and blow this particular popsicle stand, grape mush melting on the desk of my humanity.
