This week’s challenge is to post an image of a selfie. I have used this one before, but I really like this photo. We were on a 7 hour road trip from Calgary to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. What adds to the photo is my son’s dog. He spends a lot of his time on trips like this, doing exactly what he is doing. Paws on the dashboard watching the road unwind.
This week we have been given the topic of family. To me family is a far-reaching intangible. I have my natural family, my in-law family, my work family, my far-flung friend family, among others. Makes it very hard to choose a photo to post here. To decide, I played some eenie meenie miney mo game and came up with this one. We are bereft of grand children at this time, but, while we wait, we have a grand dog, our son’s King Charles cross. Prepare to be cuted out of your socks.
This prompt from WordPress “Daily Prompt: Goals” dropped into my email the other day. This one got me thinking. When I started this blog, I had an idea to create a personal storehouse to help Lori and I remember our various adventures and share them with our friends in some way. I held to this for a while and then, miracle of miracles, people started reading about these adventures, people I didn’t know. I soon realized that WordPress is a very large community, filled with people with the same general idea, that being, I have something to share with the world. I started following blogs, getting involved in comments and, all the while watching my blog grow. As it grew, I began to dabble in other areas of my interests, music, sports and opinion. I eventually came to a crossroads in that I felt I was losing focus on my original thought for this blog. I even went so far as to create 3 other blogs, splitting my interests in 4. This did not work, we don’t get paid for this, and 4 blogs was like a full-time job. I folded up 2 of them and went to a music blog and the original. I figured out again that it was far too much work and folded up the music blog as well. Now I am what I am, and feeling pretty good about it.
I still have the urge to track back a bit and concentrate on the travel side more, but, I really love my music as well. No matter what I end up doing, I do know on thing. I can’t see me quitting. This is way too much fun.
Rock on my WordPress friends, and never miss an opportunity to go somewhere.
This postaday thing is kind of cool. Saves a hell of a lot of thinking, and I don’t have to do it every day either. This one is interesting. The instructions are simple enough:
Put together a a musical playlist of songs that describe your life, including what you hope your future entails.
Not bad only a syntax error and a minor spelling mistake.
Sounds simple enough. Let’s give er a go eh mates.
Describe my life, hmmmm, describe my life, let’s see, describe my life. No many songs that I can think of that involve working sleeping and working, at least not many I like anyways. Gawd, this is tougher than I thought. Let’s try the future. Ah that’s better.
or, more hopefully
Yes, I want to become a pirate. A pirates life for me. I hope….and I dream.
