Christmas and the holidays have proven indescribably horrendous this year; however, the determination to continue writing through it all--despite it all--has remained (for the most part) undiminished. Having entered a few very bad poetry "chapbooks" in various contests, the objective is to work as long, as diligently, and as consistently now that my laptop has been repaired and restored. Though progress is hard to measure at this point, my hope centers on that well-used adage "even a broken clock is right twice a day."
Something has to turn up.
In the meantime, tomorrow is gone and cannot be changed. The future is beyond my present comprehension. All that is left for me--indeed, for any of us--to do is learn from the former, strive for the most favorable results with regards to the later...and keep doing the best that can be done with that which is known at the time.
But, y'know what?
'Tain't always easy, ya'll!!!!
(Keep writing, everyone.)
By the way,
If you are ever in Colorado Springs and in need of a little TLC for your Mac, top in the Macstore and ask for "Phil." He's really a great guy!
