Dear Universe- Straight Answers Please

 

There is a challenge that comes alongside of the audioblogs and that is what happens when the blogger doesn’t host the audioblog on their server. If the service you use goes under you end up losing your file. Think of it as being similar to trying to read an article in a newspaper in which someone has cut out all of the coupons.

It creates giant holes and does a fine job of killing your ability to read the story. Well, TheJackB loves danger and lives footloose and fancy free. In other words at the moment I will take my chances.

The point and purpose of this post is to obliquely share thoughts/criticism about a few things. I have a couple of projects that I am having a terrible time completing. It is not because I am unwilling or incapable but because every time I work on them I get interrupted. If I were more superstitious I would say that someone doesn’t want me to do it.

And that my friends is why I ask for a straight answer. Tell me what you want/need for me to do and I just might do it. If you don’t tell me we go through this crazy race around the Mulberry Bush in which I try to figure it out.

Now I do like to take the long way home and I enjoy wandering with purpose but I hate having work hanging over my head. I can’t relax until I finish these things and I can’t get them done because I keep getting interrupted. What is up with that.

In a moment I am going to ‘sneak back’ into work mode and see if that helps. Before I go I want leave you with some random links from the blog, a few comments and maybe a thought.

Some of the old posts here make me cringe a bit but they also make me smile. The blog shows a history of what was and perhaps glimpses of what could be. It also shows a lot of dust which is why I air out some of these things. I intend to write more posts and update WUL ASAP- provided I can free up some time.

    When are you going video, JB? I just began and it’s a blast!

    When the constant interruptions start it means you are missing something obvious and need to put yourself back on track. Pause for an entire day and do something else and put your mind on “open and quiet.” It’ll come. P.S. I normally say 3 days but I know you are Taurus um I mean stubborn and asking for 1 day is a lot and possibly unlikely to be heeded :) But it will save you months in the end.

      I’ll see what I can do. Pausing for an entire day sounds like a great break, but that little thing called work happens to have a role too. :)

    So glad you asked. Finish/write your novel! I want to read it!

      Thanks. Working on it, trying to create something that doesn’t sound so ridiculous.

    I think you sound pretty patient with a good handle on this universe thing. The waiting for answers is difficult sometimes.

    I used to love sports weekend and miss them terribly now that I’m in a different phase of life. My daughter played soccer for years then moved on to volleyball and track in high school. Fantastic experience for her, physically, mentally and socially. My son wrestled and that sport taught him more than anything else. Dan Gable has a saying ““Once you’ve wrestled, everything else in life is easy.”

      I gave up patience for Lent, assuming I once had it.

      This waiting for answers thing chaps my hide in places that aren’t meant to be rubbed raw.

      Given the choice I’d grab a drink and hit the hay early but that never happens so.

      Soccer has been great for the kids as has basketball.

      Wrestling is fun- got to be willing to endure a little pain, but it is fun.

    Hey JackB nothing gives us straight answers, no not even the guy who we watch shave in the mirror. Oh well….Billy

      Hi Billy,

      That may be true but I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t try to change that. It is the Taurus in me.

      Hope all is well.
