I’m just too darn busy!
Work is crazy right now. As I don’t talk about work here, I won’t say much about except that we’re busy working with architects and we’re hoping to bring in a guy from India for 6 weeks starting in mid-October. And he's having problems getting a visa! Besides that, I’ve got a trip out West coming up the middle of next week and have a lot of stuff to do before I take to the skies. Although I have some business out there, I’m taking a backpack and will spend a good chunk of time hiking in the desert. I promise you’ll hear about it later. This is the trip that I’d planned for May, but had to be postponed. By the way, if you don't hear from me, just assume I decided to keep walking.
Bone (check out Kevin AL in the list of blogs to the side, he's got some powerful stories that I'll have you laughing and crying) has a Wednesday project. He gives three words and asks you write a poem, story, etc. I participated for the first time this week. I'm not sure why I did it, considering how overwhelmed I am, but here's my submission. Bone's words for this week: drop, slow, arms.
I dropped behind,
and in shame
buried my head
into my arms.
Don’t you think it sounds as if I’m overwhelmed?
Bone is also serving as administor for all the guest bloggers on Courting Destiny. Pia is taking a month off to work on a book, so go look up her site and experience the writing talents from across the spectrum. Sometime later this month, I will be the guest blogger. When she asked me if I’d do a post, I made her suggest a topic. She suggested I write about a train trip. Therefore, come September 21, while some of you may be celebrating the beginning of fall and I’ll be enjoying the desert, there will be a simultaneous posting of a story about a train ride I took along the California Coast some 15 years ago. The story will be here and at Pia’s site. As an additional teaser (to keep you coming back since I ain't writing much), the story includes a very “Bone-like” memory of a lost love (that should perk Murf's attention). Stay tuned!
