Ten positives

Putting a positive spin on it, today was a very full and rich day. However, there was little time to write. In other words, my agenda was sidetracked. Can I find ten positive things about not having enough time to do what I’ve planned? Let me try.

  1. I encountered some people with stories that needed to be shared. 2. I had time to encourage someone who needed it. 3. I had conversations that provided me with material for future writing projects. 4. I listened to Spanish instructions as I drove to and fro. 5. With fragmented time, I was able to accomplish small tasks needing to be done. 6. In other words I utilized my time wisely. 7. I’m stretching here, but at least I wasn’t bored. 8. I realized I am needed. 9. There was at least a moment or two to smell the roses. 10. I usually work best under pressure. So you see every type of day has positives.

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.

    hi my friend—bolstered by you saying that there was little time to write today—I feel I have to say this: have you considered writing weekly or sporadically? I receive and enjoy another friend’s blog and it arrives in my box maybe twice a week or less—and that feels about right to me. Daily is a lot—for you and for readers. Just my 2 cents. You write so well of course—it’s not that at all. love to you
