Or rather, where was I? Yes, I know it’s been two years since I posted anything here. Bad times for me, but life is beginning to look up. I am currently working on a short story, which I will post here when it’s completed. It is a combination of a science fiction/love story. I hope you enjoy it. The beauty of summer, even in the desert country. My hobby, in addition to writing, that is photography. Saturday I decided to try and capture some of the beauty that surrounds me. Sunflowers are in full bloom around my house, so I decided to see if I could freeze time. I also wanted to try macro photography and see what I could accomplish. Overall I am happy with the results, but I know I have a long way to go.
Sorry for my lack of postings over the last month. October was not a good month for me. I let myself slip into a State of self-pity and it's hard to be motivated to do much of anything to feel bad for myself and my perception of life. But, life is too short, and that it is time to stop wasting time and go back to what I want to do, which is a record. With this in mind, national novel writing month, or NaNoWriMo for short began at midnight this morning. For those who don't know what it is mostly the competition itself to write at least 50000 words within 30 days. This is not a novel but rather make you a long way down this road. This non-profit organization supports those who want to write as well asContinue reading… Excuse my absence and NaNoWriMo!
As I mentioned in my previous post, not taking advantage of the choices and opportunities in life because of some fear only leads to regrets later in life. This may seem scary at the time, but it is much better in the long run take these chances. Of course things may not turn out how you wanted. But at least you can look back and say that you tried. Regret not having tried everything that he was there would be no later. Time finicky hostess and very rarely is these features again. Snatch them while you can. I have very few regrets in my life. Those with significant, at least for me. This is not to say that I lived a life of wild and reckless. If I ever tell my story many would probably find it very dull andContinue reading… Life's too short (part 2)
Although this website was mainly for me to post things about my work and related, original thought to name many years ago was a place to talk about things in the world and in the life the way I see it. This post and will be different, but I'll try to have more on my writing. As I called it, life is too short, and it is all too true. A lot has happened to me in the last two or three years. I will not bore you with the details, because that's not what's important. Important lessons I've learned, hence the name. And I wanted to share this with you the results of these lessons. Life is too short. An opportunity not to knock twice and after the time no, it's really gone. You will never get it backContinue reading… Life is too short
Something I read today; “If I refused to learn from people unless I agreed with everything they had ever said and done, I would never learn from anyone.” A good bit of advice to consider. Unfortunately, it seems in today’s politically correct world too many people completely shun others with whom they do not completely agree. No one wants to consider another’s point of view or discuss the pros and cons of either side of an argument. It is either “my way or it’s wrong”. You see this from the highest level of government all the way down to John Q. Public. Wouldn’t the world be a much better place if we all would step back and consider that what we hold so dear might have faults or even be completely wrong?
Believe it or not, this is where I’m going to write stuff. Some may be fantastic, some may be very dry and boring. But this is my place and I WILL write what I want. Your comments are appreciated. Do try and keep the discussions civilized. I do not expect you to agree with what I have to say. In fact, you may never agree with me and that is quite all right. Stick around, you might be pleasantly surprised (but I’m not going to hold my breath).
