I made a post about a specal about 1968 I saw - and maybe saw my dad in (and *did* see freind of my parents in) but then i didn't post it.  Maybe I will. 

had a drs appt today - my follow up from the prcedure 2 weeks ago.  He wants to do the other side as well. 

Started on the 2nd and 10th prompts of my 12 (now 13) prompts.  I have to say this is fun. 

I have a goal of 200000 words thsi year - I don't know if I can make it.  but what the heck.

the Tom Brokaw one. I have to say it's a bit odd seeing people you know on tv in stock footage. I should be used to it by now.

As of *right now* I'm on track to make it. But we will see if I run out of steam.

I don't know if I can make it.
Oh please...I have no doubt that you can...YES YOU CAN! ;)

I'm feeling OK. I have to have the other side done now too. I'm not looking forward to it but hey.

200K is a lot of words.

yeah It's working, but it's not a pain free life. It's more like I'm back to being say - 30. LOL

13 for 13 sounds bad - plus I may be getting a few more...

yeah it was the Tom Brockaw specal - followed up by the MLK specal too. What hit me were two things a young black man talking about 68 saying "when I think about 1968 I think I'm more upset about it than my dad" (something that I think all the time) and MLK3 (who is about 10 years older than me) wondering how his parents decided what rallys he could go to what was just dangrous and what was too dangerous (somethign I've wondered about as well (but about hte 70's)

I enjoyed the specal - but after 3 hours I had to change the station. The funny thing was I was watchign a rally in DC in 1968 and then flipped to MSMBC - and they were showing the inaugration coverage. The faces were differnt - but in a lot of ways the feeling was much the same.

My fear is that people will look to - well now today - and say "well we've acheved the goal. When we are still so far from judgeing people by the content of their chericter. Yes this is a huge step - but not the end of the journy.

I have about 2000 words to make it to the "on track" point for this month. I can drop my goal 1 time after January. So I want to evaluate in June to see if I can make it or not...LOL
