My backyard berry bush is in full swing, I’ve been picking about a pint a day for the past 4-5 days. I’ve been freezing, using some in smoothies and considering jam if I looks like I’ll get enough.
I’m so happy to be making progress with this new format. Tonight I was able to import all of my old posts from Blogger so they are now archived in WordPress and I’ve made new pages for future uploads of music and artworks for sale. Nothing is set in stone here and I reserve the right to change things anytime but for now I feel like I’m going forward and it’s an exciting feeling.
For such a long time I’ve been creating things and just keeping them all to myself always thinking that my creations are not quite good enough or ready for prime time. I can no longer do this. I must release these things into the world. I’ve been waiting for everything to “be just right” and the only thing that’s happened is I’ve gotten older and I’ve got a bunch stuff that I can’t take with me. It doesn’t matter to me anymore if anyone likes or appreciates it. Everything must go so I can create more while I still can.
I’ve made some headway today with my new site/blog. The menu links are not totally functional but I’m getting too tired to delve into any solution to fix it tonight so I will sleep on it and come back to this problem sometime tomorrow after work. I’ve posted one of the many sunset pictures that I’ve taken from my backdoor over the past several years. I have what is known in real estate speak as an “ocean peek” not a full on ocean view. I find my peek totally satisfactory save for the telephone pole that is always in full view. Every picture I’ve taken features the damn thing and so I’ve been trying to learn to live with it best as possible. I hope that in the coming days, weeks and months this site will develop into a fully functioning entity where I can express myself in a way that I haven’t ever. I want to share my thoughts, ideas and the things I make with who ever is interested, or not.
I’ve been under the weather for the past couple of days. I seemed to have picked up a version of the bug that has been going around. All I could do was sleep. Save for a couple of doctor’s visits and a trip to the mechanic for a new timing belt, I was feeling like crap. Late yesterday I was able to sit up in bed and expend some brain power on learning how to use my new web site blog system. I think I’m getting somewhere but it’s been slow going since Dec. when I thought I would be using it right away. I’m starting from scratch and this new site won’t look or be like the old one, which thought was very pretty. I like to think that I have an affinity for new technology and have an ability to adapt to new things and change fairly easily but I am frustrated to no end by the learning curve. I love to learn new things but new computer software and equipment present their own challenges as they force me to modify my behavior in a way that maybe I don’t want to just yet or ever. I am dragged kicking and screaming down a path that will usually end up with me finally getting comfortable with a new system and next one is right behind it.
Incrementally, I am making progress as I learn to use this new interface. Good times!
