My Civic Duty

I had Jury Duty today. Yeah.
I was one of 65 people who went in to answer that lengthy questionnaire regarding the case we were being considered as jurors.

This was different: It started with a power point presentation. It started with a synopsis of legal definitions and the differences in the world of legal vs the world of...well, just the rest of the world. I must admit, the whole experience was interesting as it gave a brief, slightly structured view of the legal world. I was interested. Law is a very interesting field just one I don't think is my cup of tea. I do not know if I will be called back to serve, and actually I hope not simply based on the time I would miss work. If I could avoid missing work, I would be interested to go and be part of the process.

Our system at work!

First Snow

It isn't just the first snow of the new year, it is the first of our winter. I have never been really crazy about holidays, but I love this time of year. I feel as though this time of year is almost a required "slow down" time, a "hunker down and recover" time. The snow is the perfect clue to rest up. I hope this new year brings less stress and more of a relaxed way of going. I have had my fair share of stress for a while.
Best new year wished for everyone. May it be filled with health, happiness and the love of friends and family.
