New and Improved

Have you checked out lately? The New and Improved web site has links to blogs, video and audio. And online editor Caleb Hale is blogging and podcasting. His Weekender podcast on New Year's resolutions, got me thinking about what "spectacularly stupid" words he may have spoken to his wife that haunt his marriage to this day. ;-)

Don't we all have things we'd like to unspeak or undo? But since we can't, we move on. As Confucius say "Our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."

Like the myth of Sisyphus, doomed to push a boulder up a mountain for eternity. When he reached the top, it would roll down again (too bad for Zig Ziglar). Yet, as the author of a famous essay on this myth believed, despite his absurd existence, Sisyphus is "happy."

And one must imagine that Southern.Com Online Sales Manager Shawn Connelly is happy, too. ;-)

Like Sisyphus, I'm always pushing rocks. Unlike Camus, I'm trying to keep a positive attitude at all times.

The site is a vast improvement, and helps make the mountain look a bit smaller.
