While I appear to be in a leisurely mood these days, time is progressing towards the point where I may be needing to gear up and do several things. One, I have a publisher breathing down my neck to get my last few chapters in of Loveable Resident so he can get the ball rolling. Second, I have to find time to get more active to reduce the amount of weight I've gained since I've been hoping to see this significant Person who I have said "I love You" to so many many years ago. I don't think he is particular about my weight gain and may actually find that I am happier being this way. No more kale chips!!! But, I do feel that it is necessary to eat right, have an active life (if only to hail cabs) and take care of my family so everyone is good. Third, I still need to have a schedule to write because of all the events that I've had to go through - leaving work, finding a place to write (not at home due to the three fur kids clamoring for treats at every turn) and then prepping for the marital march down the aisle.
Not to worry, I will do my best. I am starting again the devotionals that I like to pray so that it calms my mood and removes the blue devils that plague artists and writers (I've read their lives and that seems to be a common affliction). Prayer is a good way to meditate, is a form of meditation, and it frees the mind to build up a world of fiction (or poetry or whatever written work you might wish to do). I have been remiss though in this for months and months, and it might have led to several problems in my writing life.
I don't know about proselytizing here - I don't wish to make people take umbrage at pushing my faith. I think if you're in a conversation with God, that is a good thing and it will help. I definitely recommend having a dialogue with God.
Today it's a little busy where I have parked my laptop. No coffee around, but just a bottle of sparkling water. The only thing that seems to be nagging at me is the sound of what seems to be a duck quacking in the background and I am SURE there are NO DUCKS around. I bet it's a bellows of an old heater or something. I don't know bellows from engines, but I think the word bellows matches this annoying sound.
Guess you all need to understand how to deal with Mondays. It's good to be here on Monday. I love weekends, but I welcome the new week. Lots of possibilities, new emails from good people, business contacts, arrangements to meet for lunch or dinner, and so on.
Have a great week. Take care of your self, your psyche and your plans. God is good. Always.
