Two-thirds of the challenge I signed up for has been completed! In the midst of all I had to do and chose to do the last twenty days, there were times when I got to thinking – even just for a moment – about many things. What do I want to do in my days? What are my priorities? What personal relationships do I want to work on? How much time I want to devote to different activities, including writing of this blog?

For me, reading is an essential and beloved activity. It has always been and it always will be. I used to read a lot as a kid, as a teenager often late into the night, as a college student on crowded streetcars and buses, juggling the book in one hand and holding on to the rail with the other. I still do – all of the above. My days don’t feel complete unless they are finished with reading.

Before I started my blog, like any good intellectual, I did in depth research. I wanted to know everything about blogs. I checked out many of them in different categories and my feelings were mixed. Sometimes I thought I could also do it, at some other times I felt it wasn’t for me – blogging was the game of the younger generation.

Some of us are fascinated with numbers and we see beauty in them, but maybe don’t know to explain easily why, or what numbers actually are.
“Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the life-long attempt to acquire it.” — Albert Einstein
I dream of coloured inks. Of every kind.
“Most people are mirrors, reflecting the moods and emotions of the times; few are windows, bringing light to bear on the dark corners where troubles fester. The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.” — Sydney J. Harris
