Most days, after I wake up, regardless of the time, I have a decision to make. Today, “am I going to be a poet, a photographer, a writer, or just a lazy putz?”
When I first started this blog over two years ago, the decision was easy – I woke up determined to be a writer. My biggest problem then was thinking of things to write about. At the time, I wasn’t aware of the daily and weekly challenges offered by WordPress. I thought it was all up to me, that I had to do it all on my own, and I struggled.
These days, I have plenty to write about. For example, I published an article and my first poll back on 25 April entitled 135 Started, 68 Published, What’s Next?. At the time, I had published 68 posts out of the 135 I started, which left 67 still languishing in draftland. Today, as I write this, the numbers are: 153 started, 76 published, and 77 drafts. Publication percentage is about the same: 49.67% today versus 50.37% then.
As I was reviewing the numbers just now, I was struck by a curiosity. The tens and units digits of the total numbers are transposed: 153 today versus 135 then. I wonder if this is some kind of sign. It certainly seems enough of a curiosity to consult my Toracle.
Today, I want to alternate between lazy putz and photographer. After consulting with my Toracle, though, it seems I have to work on some long overdue financial documents. At least, I do if I want to continue to have a wife that loves and takes care of me and not one who wants to beat me in the head with a frying pan.
Toracle wins. Time to get to work.
