We drove downtown today so I could donate blood. It was my fifteenth donation. There’s always a big need for blood, but especially now with the current pandemic. Please consider donating. My little blog entry continues below.
Before I tell you this story, to quote the comedian Mike Birbiglia: “Remember, you’re on my side.”
I’ve been working on some projects lately around our house and in our yard. My wonderful little brain is brimming with lots of ideas and I’m starting to work on them all. Here’s a few I’d like to share.
Just a free write. Enjoy.
I got a new bike about a month ago. Every time I get on, I feel I’m mounting a horse. It’s the same feeling, the same swoosh of your legs, getting your balance and buckling in for adventure. But honest to Schwinn, this thing is a beast. And apparently I hit 600 miles today, since I started biking. That’s a win, my friend. 🥳
I’m also trying to grow a couple a couple of avocado plants, a la Bruce Willis’ character from Red. I’m also attempting a small pot of Chinese Forget-Me-Not flowers. They’ll keep me company as I continue my writing goal of 2500 words a week on my current book in progress.
Stay healthy and active, everyone. Kerkaw! 🦉
I’ve been thinking about Psalm 91 quite a bit since the coronavirus became a world-wide concern. The rabbi at my Messianic congregation recently wrapped-up a six-part sermon series on this psalm, and none too soon since the very next week churches were asked to stop meeting. There are hospitals overwhelmed by patients, non-essential businesses being […]
My iFit trainer for this month’s Argentina bicycling challenge (Nicole Meline) has been introducing the idea of finding your edge. This is finding the area in your life where you are “sustainably uncomfortable” and where personal growth begins to happen. Let those words sink in for a moment. They’re quite the odd pair to juxtapose, aren’t they?
Some good info on the current situation from a professor with 40 years of experience. Thanks, Dr. Blaser. Stay safe everyone.
In the Hollywood Blockbuster The Matrix, Neo finds out that his whole world was a lie. He had been asleep and machines had manipulated his reality. Nothing he experienced was real. Dreams are interesting because they can be so real, that when you wake, just for a moment reality and dream blend. Which is which? […]
I started my new job this past week. Yes, you read that right: I started a new job in the middle of a pandemic. I fought with my GPS, driving here, driving there, to try to get myself set up as a a new employee. On Day Three, Google led me directly past where I needed to go, right into a road that I wasn’t technically allowed to enter. That was fun to explain, right before I was forced to do a U-turn, pass Go and forgo collecting my $200.
On Day Four, Google told me to go straight at a gate that was closed and barricaded. Google clearly insisted on this, and then I believe brought me to a second gate that was also closed and barricaded. I drove around on private property, trying to force the GPS to reroute and recalculate itself to give me Option B. During this time, I was praying fervently that I would make it to my appointment on time and hoping a curious cop wouldn’t find me and pull me over.
I finally ended up doing a huge circle, on and off the highway, and got back to where I started. My GPS then repeated the same directions that got me into my predicament in the first place
“Take a left at Sesame Street,” Google chirped from my phone. “Sunny days. Everything is, A-Okay!..”🎶
“SHUT UP, GOOGLE!!!”
Let’s just say, my GPS and I are not talking at the moment.
