Spent some time this week with this blog entry from Ali Edwards.

In this entry, she talks about her daily schedule as she works from home with two children - one school-aged and one not. I brought back a lot of memories of the days of working from home with my son. It sounds like a great gig - and it is, if you can get it - but it has it's own challenges like balance (when am I working and when am I parenting?).

I really liked some of the quotes Ali included in her entry:
"Tell me, what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" ~ Mary Oliver
"I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well." ~ Diane Ackerman

These are the sorts of thoughts I am living with these days. Truly, I have been living with them for months. What am I here to do? Where should I put my energy? What do I do with my varying interests and passions?

What do you think of these quotes?
