Good morning to Maria and Louis (as they read this blog in the morning) and hello to everyone else, especially the ones that come almost every day and read everything.
I must say I am extremely delighted to see that some of you find what I say interesting or amusing. Even if you read it just because you’re looking for a way to pass the time, it’s all good. At least I know I’ve shared some of my thoughts with someone.
This was an interesting day for me. It was filled with everything. I had moments of joy, moments of sorrow, moments when I enjoyed my work but of course also moments when I felt like finding another line of work.
Who knows, one day I will win the lottery and I could choose whatever I want. I have the feeling that that day is close – every girl has a right to dream now, doesn’t she?
I had a chance to catch up with friends – over the phone, as I went out only with Rex. However, we talked about other times when life seemed free of responsibilities and the worse that could have happened was not to pass an exam.
Is it only my impression or truly old friends, the ones you’ve had a relationship for over 25 years for instance, are the best in the world? They know you, maybe not entirely, because we always keep something hidden inside us, but most of you. And you shared moments and those moments built the relationship more.
I always thought that people are the sum of their experiences and the thought crossed my mind today while recalling about stupid things or daring things I used to do way long in the past. No matter what, with all that comes the feeling of being alive but also the feeling that one can reach their goals only if they try.
I was amused by Rex’s antics with his huge pillow – three times his size. Anyway, size doesn’t matter always. He managed to wrestle with it and even carry it in his teeth and jump with it on the bed.
I also amused myself and Louis telling him about something my “sweet” little dog did yesterday. In a way it showed he is a very intelligent dog but on the other showed that males of all species have a tough time firing straight, no disrespect intended.
Things are going well. I even got a notice concerning royalties – considering how much I spent on advertising campaigns (whose result was zero, maybe even less than zero, mathematically speaking) and how much I got in royalties, an economist would tell me to forget about publishing and royalties.
However, I publish for my own pleasure and I never imagined I would get rich by cashing royalties. I know the winning lottery ticket is just around the corner. The question is that I have to find the right corner and everything will be fine afterwards. I can even travel and follow in Hemingway’s steps, minus the drinking, as I have no inclination for that whatsoever. Had I been younger, who knows! I had my wild years – not wild in the terms of nowadays world but wild all the same.
Now, till I have that winning ticket, I still have to do my job and anything else that crosses my mind. And as someone was remarking today even, too many projects cross my mind and too many ideas. The advice was to learn where to stop. That's something I have never learnt!
For the moment, goodbye, and see you tomorrow again!
Born sometime in the past century, living in the 21st century.
Sometimes I have good ideas... (what do you think?)
Sometimes fascinating guests!
(that for sure!)
Sometimes I have to share some of my frustrations,..
(not too tempting, huh!)
