It has been a heck of a week. Vivian's dad is being super-uncooperative, even for him. The workplace is having its own drama, all emotional and nothing about performance, of course, so I feel adrift at best.

On the other hand, the conflict resolution workshop was brilliant, just what I needed, and centering. More than ever, this is calling me to follow a new path, one that doesn't deal with data but with people, one that focuses on talking and listening and building connections and empathy.

I'm working on my final papers for the term, and they are coming together. I'm dragging my heels on the Comparative Urbanism class because i'm being all uppity about it. It's not a very helpful mindset, I grant you. Here's hoping that the truth will set me free. Everything is due the afternoon of the 17th, so wish me luck. I have an extension for the American Identity course that I'm working on, but I would rather not use it if possible.

Keep your fingers crossed for me -- I'm working on the project some more this week. No matter what, I feel pretty centered and solid. There is a lot of turbulence right now, but I feel certain I'm on the right Path.
