It’s Easter

I'm currently reading - and thoroughly enjoying - "Lamb" by Christopher Moore. It's fast making its way onto my "favorite books of all time" list. And that, folks, is about as close as I'll come to celebrating Easter.

Though I will be doing the family-get-together part; not because it's Easter but because it's a holiday and my family likes getting together (we sincerely enjoy one anothers' company; imagine that). It's also the last big family shebang that won't be marred with the screaming cries of and incessant "look at me, entertain me" of a child.

Not that I mind - I'm damn excited about my little Sweetpea's debut on Earth. She'll be joining the family any time now and I'm delighted. It'll be fun, but it will also be different. The family hasn't had any new blood - children, that is - since my only cousin on this side was born - twenty-three years ago. So saying it will be a big change in the family, and our get-togethers, is a bit of an understatement.

It'll be good for us - new life being breathed into us old, childless farts won't be a bad thing. It's what family is all about. My only true regret about little Sweetpea is that my grandmother, matriarch extraordinaire that she was, isn't around to see her first great-grandchild - or to give my Mom advice on being a first-time grandmother. She'll be around; I have no doubts about that - but, you know, it isn't the same.

Happy Easter, or whatever-holiday-is-your-personal-equivalent (or even simply, your family get-together) to each and all.

    find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I've had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts
    out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Many thanks!
