Well to say the least it’s been an eventful month for me. Here we are, the 15th day of September — which brings us half-way to thirty. This post marks the mid-point along my self-imposed month of blogging dangerously. Don’t think I’ll be doing this any time soon again though. It’s tough writing every day. Not so much the writing part, but the part where I’m ready for others to see what I’ve created. I’m sure it’s not easy on you the reader either, those anyway who strive to keep up. I see myself as more a weekly “columnist” like Dave Barry or George Will. I don’t get paid nearly as much, but there’s lot’s more time to edit and refine. Not under the gun as often to make the deadline.
Among the things this ninth month of the year has brought are milestone birthdays and a new resolve to maintain what was once my status quo. We’ve honored our labor force (or so it is said) with a three-day weekend and marked the end of summer. We’ve remembered the 10th anniversary of our worse day in modern American history. I’ve revealed far-too-much about me, released myself from the surly bonds of control and domination, and have even talked religion, which is something I had hoped to avoid. Hard for me to do though. Politics… harder still! I’ve heard from distant relatives, added a few new subscribers and even changed the look of this blog.
Without fanfare a new theme was introduced on Monday with a slight change in title. I liked the earlier design but I was always bothered by the small font. I needed bigger… bolder… if for no other reason but my weary, old eyes. Not to mention… bigger and bolder is more “me.” I’m not sure I absolutely love what I’ve found, but it’ll have to do, ‘least for a while.
So here we are half-way through the month. The 258th day of the year with 107 remaining. The 30-day challenge continues with subjects like Texas, chopping wood, stinkin’ thinkin’ and choices all ahead. Got to keep it compelling as a friend would say.
Finally, I leave you this thought:
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.
You know who said that? No cheating!! I’ll tell you in my next post tomorrow.
