Lovin' the signs of Spring I'm seeing in abundance. Not loving the chilly wind so much. Been plugging away at my SOY entry, having decided to put myself through that again. Really, "put myself through that" is an exageration, as it really isn't a big struggle/travail or anything. Just doin' that I love doing, and would do anyway, only this time with a deadline and some decidedly stiff competition. I think it's the competition that makes it fun. The push to do your best work. Notice I say YOUR best work. Meaning, when only ONE person wins, there should be NO BAD FEELINGS because you just did a great amount of YOUR BEST WORK. Who cares if you aren't the winner, you ARE the winner - you have great stuff to show for it. Play along and enter. Be proud.
