I've been tempted to drop a learning opportunity and volunteer for a newsletter duty, and have been looking at Yahoo Lists and Google Groups.
By fluke I ended up in My Yahoo horoscope, which reads: "Your ambitions have not all come to fruition, but that doesn't mean that you have failed in any way. There is a time and place for everything, so don't get distracted if that big brass ring has escaped your grasp, yet again. This is not the end of your options, so do not beat yourself up about it. Instead, focus your energy on attaining some other new goal. While you're busy climbing that mountain, forces will be working to give you another opportunity to try this one again."
That darned brass ring again, (see Lynne's comments here), but this time, I hadn't noticed that I missed out on something. Good to know, belatedly. ???
As for dropping/volunteering, I haven't made up my mind. The two are not mutually exclusive, I really don't want another regular To Do at this point, and I'm consumed with my health non-problems just now. Besides, a large group receive this newsletter on paper. Maybe that's the deal breaker; maybe it's really not my thing.
