Life...Goes On...And On

Maybe I am just getting old, or maybe I really am turning into a Zombie, but whatever it is, it is harder for me to get anything done these days. I am going to have to put on hold my goal of a new article once a week and try instead for the next month or so at having two. So the new plan is at least one new shiney article on the 1st and 15th of the month. Also, within a day or so, I want to have the correct issue 80 graphics that say "August 2003" not "November/December 2003". Hopefully when you read this, the change will have been made.

I must be going through some altered state kind of thing because I feel both detached and distanced from Xena fandom, and yet, at the same time, I am still intimately moved by it. Reading this month's first article, Edward Mazzeri's tenth article for Whoosh, I was whisked down memory lane, both for the show Xena and for the journal Whoosh. A double whammy that surprised me. I hope others enjoy it as much as I did, and not only for its nostaglia effect to remind of us what an incredible force Xena: Warrior Princess was (and still is for many of us), but also for the wonderment that the show was able to impart, due mostly to the many creative people that were involed to bring us our weekly Xena fix.

Whoosh is still getting more traffic than we deserve and I want to thank everyone for coming to this site. I have tried to make it a fun, exciting, and challenging place to visit. I apologize for not having the time to give the site the love and attention it deserves, and who knows, maybe I will be able to spend more time in the near future. But for now, my house is a mess. My son only has a few more years with us until he buys a one way ticket to adulthood. I have allowed my day job to make me more stressed than a human should ever be. I have hit my middle ages not exercising enough, overweight, and with the eating habits of a stupid college student. I am going to try some self-intervention. I hope it works. I am going to try to make my life more simple. I have been spending the past forty years or so making it more complex. Maybe if I start simplifying, I might be able to edit the papers faster? Get the episode guide caught up? Work on my grand Uber project (which is pure fun to work on)? Sigh. Anyways, more fruit, more vegetables, more sleep, more walking, and heck, even more socializing (I can hear a barbecue...can you? Um, veggie kabob, of course!). Wish me luck please.
