Back from the dead.#Musing #Windows10 #Life

I was in my blog page randomly as I have a pinned tab to it in Chrome. Realized that my last post was about my SSD drive a year ago…

It actually failed another time and I switched brands to Corsair (I think), and it hasn’t failed since. Might be an incompatibility with PNY and my HP system. Possible. It’s been running like a champ since then. Still have minor issues with my second monitor randomly changing resolutions or the system not detecting it. I’m pretty sure that’s because it’s dying and I need to replace it. I’ll just keep using it until it dies completely.

It has been a long year. Understatement.

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year. Lots of things have happened. I’ve been working a lot. All the time. I haven’t written much poetry recently. I have been reading. Went to Disney for the first time in 10 years last month. I want to go back. 🙂 I’m an annual passholder so I might do that for a weekend or something.

I’ll be going on a cruise in Feb. First one in more years that I want to think about (high school graduation). To Mexico this time. Never been so this should be fun.

Maybe I’ll go write something. A poem, a story, maybe a novel. Nah, too ambitious. 🙂 Although, #NaNoWriMo is coming up. Maybe. Definitely need to write more here.

Signing off. That pesky thing call work. 🙂

October Thoughts

Just realized how long it has been since I posted something. Oops. Thank you for everyone who liked my poetry. Makes me feel good. Now, if I can only get some parts of WordPress to work like it want it to, I’ll be fine. 🙂

I will post another poem from my back collection sometime today or tomorrow. I’ve considered doing something for #NaNoWriMo but not sure how poetry and novels work. I’ve considered writing a novel, and I might, but I don’t know what I would write. Several of my friends are posting that they plan to write. It will be cool to see what they come up with.

Work is good (I work full time) and I’m considering starting a blog for legal technology. We’ll see. Once I’m back in the swing of things, I might do that.

In case you have no idea what NaNoWriMo is, it’s a month that authors sign up at nanowrimo.org, dedicate that month to write at least 50k words, and get prizes. And a T-Shirt. 🙂 T-Shirts are important: Been there, done that….you get the picture.

Had to steal my iPad back from my daughter. She took off with it (I gave her my permission) Sunday night since I wasn’t using it. Then I wanted to use it yesterday. *sigh* Now I have to charge it and it’s doing odd things when it’s low on power. Very strange. I did just update it Sunday too. I might need to reboot it again.

Poetry: Untitled 20040907

What do you say to someone
When they don’t want to hear?
What do you show to someone
When they don’t want to see?
What do you want from someone
When they don’t want to feel?
What do you give to someone
When they don’t want to be?

I would like to talk
And maybe they will listen.
Would like to show
And maybe they will gleen.
I would like to understand
And maybe there is less friction.
I would like to provide comfort
And maybe they will be at peace.

This world is full of fear
Of longing, mistrust, and lost dreams.
Don’t give up on your wants
For they are the reason for being.
