Sometimes it just seems you have to take the bull by the horns and get back to it.
I have left my readers in the lurch recently, and I am about to change that, by getting back to it.
It is so hard to go back to something. New seems better. More fun. And you don’t have to worry about what you have done, because it is all new. Don’t have to try to do better or hipper or sweeter. Just do it.
When you have been away from something you have to relearn how you did it, or if you want to learn how you did it.
This is a blog about nothing and everything.
That is why I named it Somethings on My Mind. Sometimes it is with an apostrophe and some times it is plural.
Christmas has been on my mind lately, as I am sure it has been on yours.
Do you end it on Christmas evening and take down all the decorations and put away the new toys and gifts? Or are you like us and let it linger for a few days? We don’t let it stay through Epiphany all the time, but close. It just seems like we should take some time and let the Christ child enter in. Now that all the hoopla is over and done with, we can enjoy the sparkle of the new toy, whether toy truck or new computer. We can figure out if we are smarter than the average bear when putting the toy or computer through it’s paces.
Mostly we will learn that we have to learn. The computer will be different from the one you are used to. It will still have the same parts, but NOTHING will be in the same place.
The toy truck will have the requisite wheels and maybe a power switch, but it will have added things: like a dump bed, or working lights. The fun is in the trying out of all these things and discovering why we like them.
Here is to a New Year of trying and accomplishing. Whether they are new or just different.
