a new friend

A new year, new paths. Reality and beyond. Life is a trail taken and not taken, opportunities and regrets, self-discovery, nature and nurture and more.  Life is a mystery.

I’ll be studying philosophy (Introduction to), an eCourse, for 7 weeks starting January 28.
I have a new friend, a big stuffed monkey which I called Costa Rica, that I got from the white elephant on Christmas Eve. Costa Rica keeps me warm. Sort of Calvin and Hobbes.
