Selfish Thoughts


Image by Fr Antunes via Flickr

I wonder, if it’s just a stage in life when a person questions what mark they have left on this world.  For some reason, not really sure why, I have been questioning this very thing.  Hell I have even been questioning  if a person should leave a mark, legacy, what ever.  Am I simply going through some kind of midlife adjustment, or is it a natural progression we all experience.

The questions remain, perhaps never to be answered.  I have no children of my own to carry on the family name.  I have no tradecraft recognizable by mere sight.  I simply exist in this expanse of humanity, one more cog on a gear designed to mesh with other cogs in order to keep the machinery operating.

Have I left a mark, or is it simply a stain to be washed away with time?

TIGIF, Looking Forward to the Weekend

Description unavailable

I had a much simpler day today, thank the gods.  Amazing how difficult it is to function after an extremely physical day.  Last night, I could barely move let alone think.  It’s good to work yourself to the limit once in a while, but not two days in a row. 

That should be the end of  the trips to Possum Kingdom for a few months.   It’s going to take them a couple of months to get this house ready for a final.  It’s a large house, not huge, but dam sure not small.  The difficulty with it is the location.  Just unloading the truck and getting ready for work, wears you out.  Then add a full day of hard laborious work, and reloading the truck.  By the time your done, whew!!!  Then to do it all over again the next day, Yikes.

Ohh so tired!

Fall Leaves

The last two days were not exactly relaxing.  We worked our butts off!  I feel like a truck ran me over, and then backed up to finish the job.  The only good thing about the two days was a brief respite at the Deer lease.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

This is SO Hard!

Reflections at Navarro

This really stinks.  A great post up on The Inferno, and I’m stuck out in the boonies.  Yep by the time you read this, I’ll be sitting around the camp fidgeting and full of nervous energy.  Why, because my posts for The inferno with Catherine Ryan Hyde’s new releases are posting automatically, with out me watching.

Here I am, can’t exactly plug into a tree and get Internet service, yet one of my favorite authors has allowed me to post an excerpt from her newest releases.  Oh I guess it’s alright, I do get to interview her in October. I just can’t wait.

I've been accused of vulgarity. I say that's bullshit.

Oh boy do I have some great news.  I’m posting some work from a very well know writer, tomorrow.  The Inferno is going to post an excerpt from her new releases Wednesday and Thursday.  Then later this month I, little ole me, get to interview her.  OMG I’m beside myself with excitement.

Oh, would you like to know who she is?  I’m not sure I should say…………….  OK, Catherine Ryan Hyde, author of… wait for it…………. “Pay it Forward”.  I can’t wait to really get things going with this.  Is it possible to have this much fun, someone pinch me! ____ Ouch, ok yep I’m awake and not dreaming.

Like a Kid on His Birthday


Image by Fr Antunes via Flickr

I feel like a kid the day after his birthday.  All these toys to play with, and imagination to build.  I’m simply having way too much fun with my blogging. 

I’m learning a few things also.  I have spent a few evenings listing a certain blog on just about every blog directory I find.  Let me tell you, there are a lot of them.  I’m finding out all kinds of things I could have done, and probably still will do with Ruminations, Dreamer, and the super secret fiction blog.  As for Side Notes, I’m just going to keep it nice and simple. 

There’s something nice about a daily Journal.  I don’t feel like I have to stick with any kind of format, and am free to post just about anything I want.  I have also found that my blabbering here, seems to focus my ideas elsewhere.  Strange how that works!

Sweet simplicity


Image by efilpera via Flickr

I do so love a simple and quiet Sunday.  Although I’m not sure I would classify today as simple and quiet.  I will say that it was nearly the most fun I’ve had in a long, long time.    I was up until late, getting everything set up and making sure each story posted just as it was supposed to.  Boy was it ever worth it. 

With both galleries premiering at the same time, we had a flurry of activity.  I can now see how much the Pub Wench does the night before a premier, and I stand in awe of her.  The Inferno had well over a hundred page views, and our feed numbers more than doubled overnight.  Not too bad for a site that is barely over a month old. 

We have so much more happening in the coming month, and some really exciting developments that I’m only going to hint at here and there.  Now is not the though, and you’ll just have to wait and suffer with the rest of us.  For now, be satisfied with the results of our first challenge, Curiosity Killed The Cat.  Be sure also to visit The Artists Challenge for Gallery 17 The Gift.
