To Judge or Not to Judge...

Well, I have sure been falling down the past few weeks on this blogging effort!  When I first started this project, I wanted to try to write something pretty much daily, but alas, I haven't held true to this lofty ambition.  Even with all of my 'extra' spare time, I guess that I am still not immune to 'liffe-gets-in-the-way-itis'! 

Case in point, I am currently in Calgary again for work.  This time, I am attending a two-day workshop given by one of the leading specialists of Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) in the world - Dr. Christine Roman.  So far, after one day, it has been absolutely wonderful.  Roman is truly a genius in her field. 

On to a more 'living with less'-specific topic, I just wanted to share an interesting observation that I have made over the past six weeks or so.  I have received a lot of feedback on this blog and while a lot of it has been very supportive, some of it has come across as more 'defensive' in nature.  What I mean is, some folks seem to be interpreting my project and its goals as in some way my being 'judgy' of the way that they themselves are doing things.  To be honest, I find this quite odd (and a little funny), so let me be clear.  In no way do I expect other people to 'abide' by the rules that I have set out for myself to follow.  If others happen to be motivated or interested by what I am doing, that's great, but again, if not, that's okay too.  Again, NOT JUDGING!  Like they say, live and let live...

Now, on another note, do you think that the hotel would notice if I stole their drapes? They would make beautiful throw cushions for my bed... (remember: no judging!)

Good night y'all,
