Subject: The Week in Review

I turned in my seventh draft of a work product at the office this week. My bosses seem reasonably pleased. It seems that this particular project has defeated everyone before me, but not me. That's something to be proud of - I won't be defeated by a work project. I'm just that tenacious on the job.

In fact, I've begun to wonder if perhaps I can be a bit TOO productive. It seems that others have taken unfair advantage of my willingness to produce in the past, and have pushed me past my limits. I'm trying to pace myself a little better these days, and not exhaust myself each and every day on the job. I used to give 110% to my job. Now I've pulled back to giving 101% - which still seems excessive to some people, I'm sure. I turned in another work product this week and the boss's response was "already?" So I'm performing at my usually high standards. No one has ever seriously questioned my professional capabilities. If there have been issues in the past, they have been on a personal level, not on a professional level, as far as I'm aware.

The poetry projects are going along as well as can be expected. I'm working on a book of poetry. I'm also developing audio files of me reading my poetry. I submitted poetry to a contest this week. I submitted another poem for publication this week, too. I also got a notice in the mail that one of my poems is to be recorded by a voice artist on an audio CD for a collection of poems, complete with baroque music in the background accompanying the reading. And finally, I placed inquiries regarding a possible entry into yet another poetry contest - one that I've been waiting for for a couple of years now.

I saw a movie this weekend. Friends from the office and I went to see "Monsoon Wedding" which was enjoyable. As I was leaving the theater, a couple of complete strangers stopped me and grilled me about the first few minutes of the movie, which they missed. I guess I have that "non-threatening" look that allows people to approach me easily for such things. I remember when I was in Paris last year, Parisians were always approaching me for directions, which I found hysterically funny, considering that I was a mere tourist myself.

I checked out "Snack" this week. It's a Greek restaurant. I'm checking out Greek restaurants, previewing them in preparation for my mother's visit next month. She requested that she been taken to a Greek restaurant when she's here. I think I've selected "It's Greek to Me" as the restaurant of choice for her visit. It's not too pretentious, Greek enough, affordable, and delicious. She'll like it. I did.

I got sheets for the guest futon this week, so mother has a place to stay and sheets to sleep on when she comes for her visit (and for other forthcoming guests).

Nothing else worth reporting, I guess.

I hope all is well with my readership.
