Consolidation

I’ve really gotten away from doing this kind of writing. I’m not sure why exactly. Part of the reason is a very tight schedule. The other is that I’ve been suffering from a kind of paralysis. Even though I’ve re- imagined this journal several times, none of them seemed to really fit or work, none provided that “spark” that would keep me going.

On top of that, I would have ideas and then realize I had no journal to put them in. If I had one on a spiritual line, do I stick it it here? Does it belong here? What if I turned around and then had an idea for a sports themed post? Would it fit? Would it be alright to create a hodge-podge of different posts with different subjects all running about willy-nilly? With my new job, I had travel posts on top of that. And posts about nature, photography, gaming, kids, cooking, and the list goes on.

So, I reached the only logical conclusion. I'd do them all, right here. I've wanted a central home for things for some time now and this is it.

I'm currently wrapping up a week long stint in Denver, Colorado and fly home tomorrow. This afternoon, the conference wraps at noon and there are plans to go to the mountains. I'm looking forward to this a great deal and only wish I had brought my camera. Food for thought as I look into packing and traveling for not only Atlanta but Austin, Texas as well. And what are travel posts without pictures, right?
