Seriously! What the hell happened to March, April and 3/4 of May 2019?
In February I was all set to record a bunch of podcast episodes and see how that whole thing would work out. And somehow it is May and I have the one mini-sample episode posted. What!?
Well, you know how life happens.
For me it was: a conference, meetings, calls, writing, travel, life planning, learning a new skill set to increase work/life flexibility, managing a new project, planning an institute, teaching. And somewhere in there – eating and sleeping.
Anyway. These life events are not any kind of excuse that I set the podcast to the side for several weeks. However, now is the time that I can refocus and get back to my writing new stories and recording old ones from my bank.
I’m still excited for this and hope you’ll have a listen when episodes are available!
Now that I’m back full force Jibbery Jabbering, I’ve been reading through the draft post titles from as far back as 2015. Some make complete sense to me, like: “Close to Home” or “A Trip to North America”. But for some, when I click on the link and there is no text, only a somewhat obscure title, I’m forced to ask myself:
“What I was thinking when I wrote this title?”
For example, while I think the title “I Wish There Were Blogs in the Late ’90’s”, I wonder what it is that sparked that thought. I can think of a few ideas, but not really sure what I was thinking with that! I found a note in my phone from January about my Uber smelling like lemons. And that seems to really inspire some thinking! I have to see if I can piece that together, or maybe I’ll just post the notes and we can all have a giggle.
I’ve also been trying for months to get postings on my educator blog, but there are so many topics to write about, I’m scattered. Poor excuse, I know. I have pieces started and another list of ideas gathered, but I get nowhere fast. Unless there’s a deadline, it seems unlikely right now… but I’ll work on it. I’m not one to say and not do, so I will make it happen on my long flights coming up.
So for now, this will do. A little bit of nothing, but also a little bit of something. And I’m also avoiding reading an excerpt from The Dreamkeepers for work because it aggravated me immediately. So I chose to write instead of being annoyed. 🙂
