When are you going to catch your wind?

Your sailboat is in the water. You got your sail up. No wind. No inspiration. It happens to us all, at times. We feel left out at times.

How many of us are like that? Depressed, or down in the dumps? Waiting for the wind to blow in any or one direction, to take us somewhere. Seems like in this life we try to create our own "winds of change", to follow in a direction in which we think, may take us somewhere to a more comfortable place. Some people are fortunate enough not to have to create their own winds. The wind was already in place to take them to where they were destined to go.

Maybe you are a painter, an engineer, or a writer. Looking for that propellant to take you into a niche that can keep you going. Keep you creative, with lots of brain activity. Thinking, being constructive, is good!

I think we are all, big and small, but through it all we are just looking to keep an edge. Make us feel that we are still wanted out there, by somebody, sometime, in this time at hand.

It is rougher on the older people. The people who are poor. They are left out of society quite a bit, and do not connect with the mainstream. I bet they all have a pile of good ideas, too. I bet, they can do some pretty amazing things, if given the chance. Lets reconnect them to the mainstream! The chance to unravel their sail, and tack against the wind. Chances are they can give us a little direction, and a bit of good advice too!

Personally I am in the water, with the sail up, no wind blowing my way at times. I may have passed up my chance to sail the high seas. But you never lose by not trying...

Have a great day,  till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
