It's Feb 1st, and I'm going to slip into something new. I'm going to hold this topic for a month and invite anyone to participate. I also plan to update with a new post every Sunday or Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
The topic of the month is - Comfort Zones.
The reason I'm picking this topic is that this is the theme of my new book, The Narrow Path, that's coming out in May 2010.
In the book, Miranda has left her comfortable life in Seattle, and unwittingly walked into a community and lifestyle with which she is completely unfamilar.
All of us experience the experience of leaving our personal comfort zone to varying degrees. Sometimes it's as simple as walking into a store we've never been at before, we need one item, and because the store is unfamiliar, we can't find it. What do we do? Wander around? Leave and plan to go somplace else later, even though we don't have time? Ask for help?
Me, I usually get sidetracked, eventually ask for help, then I'm late to the destination I was really going.
Uh.... I might have even gotten a bit sidetracked when typing out this blog...
Computer Solitaire Spider should be labeled a dangerous sport, I say.
What sidetracks you? (and what's your highest score?)
