Free to work on weekends — or not

I don't want to "work" on weekends any more than the next person, but then I felt guilty thinking that someone — you, I guess — might end up here today, either by design or accident, expecting to find a fresh entry. So I've decided to aim for a Monday through Friday schedule of regular posts, with some "light" stuff on Saturday, such as videos or quotations.

Today I'll start with a quotation I've always liked.

"It is never too late to be what you might have been."

Those words have been attributed to George Eliot, a female English novelist who apparently thought she had a better chance of being who she wanted to be by writing under a man's name.

Now I'm not sure that quotation rings 100 percent true. In my what-if-I-had-my-life-to-live-over-again musings, for instance, I dream of being an airline pilot. Well sorry, George, uh, I mean Mary Anne, but it truly is too late for that.

Nevertheless, I like the basic sentiment behind it: We can always strive to improve ourselves, and please, whatever you do, don't use age as an excuse to not even try.

Happy Fourth of July.
