    I just turned 28. Fresh out of a snail-paced Cal state MA.Ed. program, I got a job as the editor of an ESL textbook called Tales of California. (It's a charming, dated series of old northern California folk tales for me to revamp and add comprehension activities to accompany each story.) However, I have not been doing much editing. I am distracted and anxious as I have been for years. There are so many things I want to do, and at 28, I still haven't learned how to take my own work seriously. The only thing that I have established with certainty is my faith and trust in my own heart to tell me which direction to go next.
