Dreams Can Exhaust You

…but that’s okay!

I have been working on a new super secret project since January 3rd and I cannot believe today is the last day of the month already. I am so engrossed in the art that some mornings I wake as early as 2 a.m. because I want to get back at it and simply cannot sleep when so much is at stake.

A few days ago it was suddenly 1:00 in the afternoon – I stretched and rubbed my eyes. Why in the world am I so tired for Pete’s sake? I counted on my fingers… well, yeah, I had just worked for eleven hours straight, totally forgetting about breakfast or lunch [it happens a lot] so no wonder I was tuckered out. I gave myself a break to watch a movie while munching on some peanuts before getting back to it.

And the callous on my middle finger is bigger than it’s ever been! If I could wrap it somehow and still hold a pencil and pen with a firm grip, I would. But trying to pad the area doesn’t work so I ignore the pain and power through. I will rest it when I am done.

So yes, following your dreams can exhaust you, but how damn happy are you while you are doing it? Full of joy and purpose and hope, right? Wouldn’t trade it for the world?

Me either. Keep dreaming, keep believing and don’t give up.

Into The Night

The world is a weird and wonderful place. And thanks to the internet, we are no longer restricted to writing bad poetry while sipping wine and listening to vinyl records. Instead, we can blog something and post it Into The Night…

My Friend, I think about you often. I miss you. Things went awkward but there was no fault on either side. Sometimes people just shift and sway, move away, become someone else. We grow, we change. It happens.

I wonder how you are, I hear things that may or may not be true. I don’t pay too much attention since it might not even pertain to you. I hope you are well, but if you are not, I wish only good things for you and a change to the plot.

So if you ever read this My Friend, tomorrow or next year, I hope you know that despite the ending, I wish you nothing but good cheer.

The world is a weird and wonderful place… and I thank it for letting me know you for a short while. Be well My Friend. Be well and try to smile.

and so, I send this… Into The Night

844-1212 Time Is Dead

Apparently it’s an old news story. But I didn’t know!

Today my friend commented that her computer time does not match the time on her phone and she never really knows what time it was. I commented about back in the dark ages of my first computer [1997] when someone gave me a freeware program that let me update my bio clock, down to the nano second, via some serious atomic clocks around the world. Because the computers were not calibrated to keep up back then. Maybe it was still a problem, I don’t know.

Then she said “Wait, can we call Time?” Well gosh, yes, I remember calling Time. Let’s try it! And as we often do, we said it at the same time: 844-1212 … she put the phone on speaker and pressed the numbers in the proper order…

Instead of Time, a pre-recorded error message issued forth from the telephone speaker. Please Check The Number And Dial Again. WUT? We can’t Dial Time anymore?

Time Is Broken. Maybe the Mayans were right after all. =:0

End Of Summer Zombie Bugs

You know those bug noises, the ones that start in mid to late August and herald the end of summer?

I know I’ve heard them before, many times. But now… now when I hear those raucous bug serenades, it sounds like The Walking Dead are coming.
