I've found contentment for now. Let me explain.
I'm not writing or sewing at the moment, but I am very intellectually engaged. I'm getting ready to go to Russia on a Fulbright grant, which makes me a Fulbright scholar, something I'm justifiably proud of. It's a good feeling, a good place to be. I'll be doing folklore research in something that I'm interested in.
I also have a good friend coming to visit me from Japan. It also looks like a Japanese project (a big one that could really help get that JIKEI center on Kirkwood's campus) is coming up. Professionally, while I have had issues with how hard I have worked this year, the peripherals are beginning to excite me, and I like them.
So, even though there are still edges of eh around what I do, I find myself mostly satisified with my lot right now. You? What in your life is causing you to feel satisified?
