so last night, as I was winding down and shutting down my computer, I found a post that I had started. I spent several minutes adding to it, only to hit save and see it disappear into that big black hole of lost blog posts. AARGGH! I wasn’t about to write it out again!!
You see, I had typed out an entry from my new book (Christmas gift from Kayce — thanks!) Daily Candy A to Z — in fact, the "Z" entry because I loved so much what was written.
I love it when foreign words make their way into our culture/language and even into everyday usage — such is the case with the German word zeitgeist — because I served an LDS mission in Germany — I’m extra excited about this foreign word! ZEIT means time and GEIST means ghost or spirit, so zeitgeist is then the spirit of an age — or the overall character of a generation. And the team at Daily Candy expresses just how I feel about it (or least how I want to feel about it)

**** SURPRISE**** Wendy Smedley*****HOW COOL IS THAT*****
that I could still share my thoughts and the book excerpt if I recorded most of what I had written in my original post — and since I have the pleasure of Wendy’s company. She could be a part of the whole thing — so, without further delay …
My Library of Memories class started today — we had some glitches this morning, that are now taken care of. I do have several more emails to respond to, so I need to go … as mentioned earlier, I’m taking Robin Johnson’s Love Story class and Heidi’s A Year to Remember — very excited about all of this — in fact, I plan to go into the Y2R class before bed and post my "goal" on the message board. I’m ready to go public and answer to the commitment that brings — anyone want to venture a guess? It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time and I am finally going to do it (be the first and I’ll send you happy mail!)
p.s. btw, you do know that Cathy is back, right?
