information overload

A poet wrote, "The world is too much with us, late and soon, getting and spending..." - and that was in the 19th century... I have been trying to find out more about the effects of video gaming on the pc; looking for woodwork projects for William online; getting sidetracked into garage organizing; and marking online essays...There is just too much information out there, it seems! In the midst of this, I heard a radio report that the European Union Human Rights Court had ruled (on appeal) that crucifixes should be allowed in Italian schools as they did not infringe on their right to secular education. The Italian government's clinching argument? - they are historical, simply pieces of art that have always been in schools...Well, I hope God might surprise a few children who have perhaps never seen a crucifix...

Apart from all of the above, I am reading "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" and trying to apply it, rather sporadically and ineffectually. It has helped me understand myself: now I must absorb the Martian part and put it to work! I also managed finally to buy a book recommended to us, Sheet Music, which looks to be pretty straight-talking about sex in marriage. True bed-time reading, I guess! But even with time to READ any of this, where is the time to PROCESS it?

I have been reminded this week of what lack of sleep feels like; but also how positive and boosting a good night's sleep is; so I think I will go off in search of the latter, now. Echoes of Pooh Bear, I think...
