I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move. ~Robert Louis Stevenson
Declaring myself a true gypsy, after being on the road for over half the year.
BTW … this isn’t “Life Styles of the Rich & Famous” … we work while we’re wandering around.
Returning to the place you call home is overwhelming!
Who needs all this stuff?
Wondering where to begin.
Finishing this blog post is a good start!
Have a great day:)
Leisure is such a wonderful word. The suit on the other hand ... Groovy!
Can already tell that Summer … as a blogging season … is not working for me.
So much to share and so little time to do it.
I’ve included Rob in the Leisure Suit to prove that he did … at one time … have a brush with one form of leisure.
People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy. ~Anton Chekhov
Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in. ~Henry David Thoreau
Exactly 44 minutes have passed since I started to write (and rewrite) this overdue blog post.
It’s really not overdue. I’m using that term for the soul purpose of a deal I made with myself to blog everyday.
I was doing so well and life happened.
The lovely thing about blogging is that I don’t have to blog if I don’t want to.
Truth be told … I enjoy blogging.
Just not the getting back up on the horse part.
It’s a terrible feeling and only seems to happen after not blogging for multiple days. I can only describe it as the pain of starting over after you haven’t worked out in awhile.
I feel so much better.
Have a great weekend!
Just passin' thru ...
Over the weekend, people of all shapes and sizes continued to share a level of boredom that they have reached with socializing online.
Truth is … most of my posts (blog or otherwise) are really just a form of journal therapy for my own soul.
While typing random words to a virtual world, I imagine kind faceless souls sitting in front of their computer screens singing my praises silently.
At times, that can be enough to inspire me to continue …
… until I run up against my involuntary head shaking that can lead to …
What’s the point?
Working hard to keep on keeping on.
Just happy to be back for another fun filled Monday!
Being present online not only takes courage … it takes a boat load of perseverance!
If no one clicks a like button or comments for days, weeks or months, how do you gather the enthusiasm to carry on?
The only word I can come up with is PASSION.
Do I want everyone to Like me? Of course I do!
But everyone doesn’t like me and I’m okay with that.
These are my thoughts that have turned into words for the world (or a small portion of it) to see. If I’m not willing to continue to share my passion based on my needs alone … then I should quit.
Well, that’s not going to happen anytime soon, I’ve just gotten started:)
So if you’re sitting there feeling sorry for yourself because no one throws you a bone once in awhile, okay.
How do you know that they’re not out there reading, clicking and discussing your posts at the water cooler?
You just never know.
Taking a U-Turn
Instead, I’m going to finish the things on my list and we can talk about it in the morning.
Don’t you just love Fridays?!
Have a good one;)
It’s a vicious cycle!

I think in terms of the day's resolutions, not the years'. ~Henry Moore

I’m trying to get back on the horse…I just haven’t been able to catch up to it yet!
Is it possible that the television show Doogie Howser, M.D. was our first glimpse into the world of social media?
Just might be!
If you owned a computer in 1989, you were able to read along on the personal blog of Doogie Howser, M.D. from 1989-1993.
Even though it wasn’t a daily, or even weekly post, what a brilliant idea for that time!:-)
Doogie Howser, M.D. aired on September 19th, 1989 and was created by the amazing Steven Bochco and David E. Kelley.
Doesn’t seem like it was that long ago, does it?
It can’t be that hard to sum it up, on a daily basis. Can it?
Guess we’ll just have to see how it goes.
P.S. The title of this blog must not have offended you…you’re here aren’t you?
Have a great day.
