Writing my last post, I thought about how I'm doing both Power Stories and Flock on Magpie Girl, and that I'm only kind of participating in both, and I was feeling a little bit bad about not being more committed/focused/whatever -- and then I remembered that oh yeah, that's what I do. I spend time at a lot of places, which do different things and which feed me in different ways.

I'm basically only doing CWM and FCS these days, and I'm increasingly involved in FCS, and this makes me a little uncomfortable -- hi, I live on the borderlands, in the liminal spaces, in the intersectionality (and I'm sure there's some therapy issues there about fear of commitment related to fear of rejection, etc.) ... but I'm reminded that no, I'm not "only" doing those two places.

Maria in my "Jesus and the Gospels" class last week asked me, while we were chatting during the break, "What are you passionate about?" and I struggled a little to answer (it's a great question, but I've never had that question presented to me in quite that way; plus it's been a while since I've had to answer that sort of question, period) but in the days that followed I used it as a framing to sketch out for myself the different things I am/have been doing/interested in and grouping them into categories to help me think about them (as opposed to having an overwhelming-feeling list of interests and projects).
