Working on one thing at once

Oboy, I better hope that I can stay retired. It sure seems like my multitasking skills are, if not gone, severely atrophied. Heck, forget even working on two things at once. These days, I feel like the best I can do is working on one thing at once. It’s not just a game anymore Well,… Read more »

Finding the will power to grant will power

After years (decades) of pestering from my Dad and Stepmom, I’ve finally bitten the bullet and gone to a lawyer to create my official will. As if the idea was not disturbing enough, the ensuing conversation was worse. Somehow, I ended up finding the will power to grant will power. If we have to Occasionally,… Read more »

My never-ending battle with ennui, part 2

This is about how I look when losing my never-ending battle with ennui

Welcome to the second half of my overly long return to blogging…and active life in general. This is my never-ending battle with ennui, part 2. I’m forcing you to go through these “introductory” blog posts before we get to the good stuff. Admittedly, that’s a relative qualitative statement, but, hey, you’re here reading this.

My never-ending battle with ennui

my never-ending battle with ennui

Nah, I’m not gonna make you look it up. Ennui – a feeling of listlessness and dissatisfaction arising from a lack of occupation or excitement. It’s a far greater threat than simple procrastination. Let me walk you through my never-ending battle with ennui. But first, a word from our sponsors… Before I get started, know… Read more »

Yes, it’s the day after the birthday BBQ and that means…bleh. But! This is the very last time I spend my birthday cleaning. The… Read more »

59 is the new 60

No, I haven’t got my overused expressions all mixed up. It’s the final entry into the Very Last Birthday BBQ week. By the time you finish this post, you may not agree, but you will understand why I chose the title, 59 is the new 60. Let’s refresh For those of you just joining the… Read more »

I probably should start planning now

Nope, this isn’t another post about Halloween. For one thing, that planning is already done. For another, it’s all about doing now, not planning. What this post is all about is my next big adventure and what I want to (or should) do. Whatever I decide, I probably should start planning now. Age is more than a… Read more »

A life full of failures

Quiet time is dangerous for me. It leads to introspection. Introspection and I spend too much time together already. Because, this often leads to retrospective thinking. And that means reviewing a life full of failures. Generally, I’ve grown, if not comfortable, then at least accepting of who I am. Too much analysis is a tiresome… Read more »

I have no idea what I’m writing

In the penultimate post from “Creative Week”, we continue to talk writing. As you will see, however, much of the time, I have no idea what I’m writing. So, let’s set the wayback machine to almost 10 years ago. Gosh! I can hardly believe it’s been that long! But, there it was, “Black Monday”. My… Read more »

Writing in the right lane

Kind of confusing, being I’m a lefty. But, in most respects, that’s exactly what I’ve done throughout my writing “career”. Just like in my drawing (see yesterday’s post), comics were a big part of my inspiration. Also, Grandma. Yup, strange but true. So, let’s take a trip during “Creative Week” on my road to writing… Read more »
