Daily I wake.
Daily I see your face.
Daily I am amazed.
Daily you persisted, grace.

My friend you were.
My friend you became.
My friend you remain.
My joint adventurer, same.

Random thoughts. It is an apt description. I have so many thoughts running around, colliding, in my head. The roar at times is like a stirred up hornets’ nest. But I manage and bounce from thought to thought, coming back to various ones then they are gone into the whirlwind vortex of flashing thoughts.

Okay, for me it is quite like a sneeze without the tickling nose or the need for a tissue, but I can feel it building. A certain level of dissatisfaction with most things in general, then something said or done triggers it: the muse happens.

To write, to pen, to consider…

Just thinking, as I do upon occasion, on writing. Today, on journaling, one’s personal diaries of thoughts, desires, and deeds. What is the value of writing out one’s thoughts. The ‘diary’ is not just a teen-aged girl’s documentary of travails. Admirals and generals and great persons of noted character journaled. John and Abigail Addams journaled in their literal conversations: he at the Capital, she at home in Massachusetts. Journaling can be somewhat the ‘pensieve’ of JK Rowling’s wizards in Harry Potter’s world: pulling out a thought with the wooden stick for later review.

Okay. So ‘prolificy’ is not really a word, or did I just make it one? In any event it speaks to my former frequency in writing and how in 2012 I was not so much. I surmise I may have focused on politics and social media discussions rather than Word Press and Tumblr. I do not think I wrote anything more than just one poem that was not socio-political commentary. It seems those words fell to deaf ears anyway. Disappointing, really.

Now I find myself introspective and fairly caught up on those things I would like to see. Thanks, Netflix. I have also noted that broadcast TV has discovered there is an internet market and they will endure commercials just like antenna viewers. Eventually old radio guys and B&W TV guys will realize the potential market is larger than their little box they think in.

So back to introspection. I thought about what it is I like to do. Then I thought about my writing. My current, or last, project was a book. I revisited it and was pleasantly surprised by the progress. My book of short stories now sits at 40k+ words and 167 pages nearly ready for formatting. I just have to finish a few more stories, a few more edits, a little formatting and design work, et voila! It’s publishable. This would be my third publish. Yeah, kind of excited about that.

So this year will be about writing more. Write more. Blog more. Wax poetic more. Be lyrical more. Yep, he writes music too.

So, that’s my deal for 2013. Let see just how many times I can publish this year. I have at least 20 good book ideas. Let’s see how many can come to fruition. I sure hope there are some readers still out there. It makes my calling and desired vocation more meaningful if there are.

See ya in the funny papers!
Cheers!

Now WordPress – the host of my main blog – has a sharing feature, so I can increase my splash in social media. This may sound braggadocious, but it is about getting read. It is why I started this in the first place. So, thanks WordPress and a big thank you to all who have read my stuff.

Cheers!

I’m a writer / thinker more than I am a blogger. I like to think about things a bit then throw them out there in word form for viewing; sometimes even for feedback.

Today is Friday and All Hallows’ Eve. It’s a nice day so far in north Texas. My wife finangled a projector and we use that to host a movie for our neighbors. We’ve done that several times. Last year for Hallowe’en’.  We watched Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein. Very few ‘got it.’ But it was funny. 🙂

This time around it’s Disney’s Haunted Mansion with Eddie Murphy. It should be funny. He has a good sense of the comedic.

Don’t eat too much candy. Watch your sugar intake. Be safe and have fun with your kids and your neighbors. Or go to a Fall Harvest Festival run by one of your local churches.

Cheers!
Doc.
