A Bit of Beauty

A Bit of Beauty

The primary reason I took up this challenge this year was to get myself back in touch with my inner spirit. I needed to remind myself that no matter how dark things might appear … as long as there are those who continue to create, the darkness will never be ... Read More

Re-re-re-re-rebirth

I seem to be in the process of reinventing myself (yet again). If you have followed this blog at all, (or any of my slew of OTHER blogs), you will realize that this seems to happen a lot … so much, in fact, that it is questionable if I actually ... Read More
Time to try this organization thang again …

Time to try this organization thang again …

Life is ultimately about change. This is no great revelation … a simple statement of observable fact. So why do I start my post with a statement of the obvious? Ultimately, because I need to start SOMEWHERE, and that is what worked for me. Yep, folks, I am once again ... Read More
Both … neither … everything in-between

Both … neither … everything in-between

I am writing a book. This is not news to some, an interesting fact to others, a meaningless mess of images to some others … and many other things to still many other people. Actually, I am writing several books, but THIS book … this book is special. It is ... Read More
Re-reflecting on reflections

Re-reflecting on reflections

My journey of late has become more metaphysical than physical. Who knew that would be the more painful adventure? I love mirrors. Well, to be more accurate, I love reflective surfaces. To me they are like gateways to other worlds; doorways to What If. They are spark plugs for the ... Read More
A fresh canvas

A fresh canvas

As many have noticed (and I probably have said myself many times), I do not live a “traditional” life. I never have. Once, I would have said my life has been one adventure after another, with periods of stagnation of varying size in between. Others might view it differently, with me be anything from a ... Read More
My dastardly plan

My dastardly plan

It seems I finally decided on a new look for the blog. It is not THAT much different from the way it was, but a little brighter and maybe a little easier to read. So why did I randomly decide to change things? Well for one, this is the season of change. But it is ... Read More
What was I writing again?

What was I writing again?

In the few years I have been blogging, the whole concept of WHY I blog often settles in. Every time it happens, I end up having a dry period, wondering “What exactly is it I am doing here? What do I hope to accomplish?” I then wander around in circles ... Read More

Putting one foot in front of the other (for a change)

As part of my pursuit of a better me, I use Lumosity. Lumosity is a site devoted to exercising the brain. I have always believed keeping the brain strong is just as important as keeping the body healthy. Add to this the history in my family of brain related diseases ... Read More

So far, my attempts at relocating the writing organs has been somewhat successful. I have gone to my new “office” twice so far, and both times managed to come out with a collection of words … maybe even some worth reading. Last time it was a couple of blog posts. This time a blog post again, but that was while waiting for something to download. But I manage to actually push out a couple of thousand words in one of my manuscripts, almost finishing a chapter that has been eluding me for quite some town now. It is a key chapter in forwarding the story along the path it has chosen, and I was having a lot of difficulty finding the words to make it happen. It did not help that I also lost my motivation and energy … especially while at home. I am not sure it is just a renewal in desire or the change of scenery is actually helping, but either way it seems to be working right now.

There is one slight drawback though. Since I am now sitting at a bar, for several hours, the temptation to spend money that I really can’t afford to spend on snacks and maybe even the occasional drink is pretty strong. So I also need to beef up the discipline, which is my true weak spot. The challenge is on!
