Still running for the cheese (or why this blog still exists)

As my regular readers can tell, this has been a dry year for me. Just look at the number of posts this year vs. 2008! Awhile back, I had considered either shutting down the Maze, or starting a new blog that would more accurately reflect where I am in life now. Truth be told, sometimes I come here, look around, and feel distinctly hypocrytical about the things I want to write. I'm sure I'm not the only one to ever be in that kind of place.
As the time in between posts has grown longer, I came to realize something. Without the past years' material, where I am now makes very little sense. What good is the destination without the journey? As Christians, so much of the best stuff that happens to us is in the times God is molding us to His image. To throw away the evidence of that process would somehow cheapen the result, I think.
So, here we are, dear friends. I think my little mousie may just have rounded a corner finally. Some things will change around here to reflect the changes in my heart. And you know what? That's ok. As much as I typically rage against anything changed in my life, I'm learning to accept the God-given ones. My prayer is that some of you may be encouraged by what you read here. Hey, you may even be challenged. And of course, if you know me, then you know you always stand a good chance of being offended too. Not intentionally, to be sure! Just know that what you find as you wander this Maze with me may surprise you as much as it does me.

All that to say this:

Monday Meme

Hard to believe another week has flown by, yet here we are! (actually thanks Cat because without this meme, I'd rarely know my days lately)

1) If you could have participated in any political march (protest or support or other), which one would you have chosen. Urgh. This is hard because I'm not very political. I guess I'd have to say I'd march against anything Dub-ya related, merely on principal. Man that guy's a prick. So glad I never voted for him, and doubly glad he's outties this year.

2) Talent show tonight!! Give us a preview of your act. Most who know me well will say at this point that I would be the last person to get up on stage. LOL. Back in the day though? Ah, music was my thing. So I guess I could get up and show off some bad karaoke. Only if someone throws in some Malibu and Annette gets up there with me though!!

3) What architectural wonder would you like to be in charge of, or own? Oooh, or own? Hmmm I'm sick of renting....
OK seriously though, I'd love to claim stake to the Louvre. Although a word to Mr. P. about people in glass houses....(heheheh, I *know* it's not all glass)

4) What is the hardest test you've ever taken? ~snorts~ ALL OF 'EM!! I dunno, I suppose the hardest would be anything with math. Oh wait, it came to me. That stupid pointless CAPT test in 10th grade!! I think any former CT student may agree. Hard for the sheer ridiculousness of it all. (btw, I failed for having an asthma attack that required me to go to the nurses office)

5) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one. (can anyone tell me how to get the pic to actually show up on here???)
Looks like something out of a museum. With the previous questions about talent and tests, my mind is already on high school so I'm reminded of our band trip to Washington DC. Naturally, I'm taken back to how much I loved visiting the Smithsonian each time I've been able to go. :)

Til next squeak,

As we say round here: You're Swelcome!

I love your answer about glass houses...hee hee hee.

And you're right, the photo is from the Smithsonian.

Have a great week!!!
