New paths? Sure

Snowy morning,

it’s been a cold week,

seems I say that a lot,

lately,

but,

what else you gonna say,

In February??

🙂

I could say I have been suffering,

from writer’s block,

but,

that would be presumptuous,

me,

not really being a writer.

It’s been a slow week,

and,

everyday,

helps my resolve,

to give up,

the book business,

I feel good about my decision.

All kinds of ideas,

are floating around,

the vast attic,

that is my mind.

Should I write,

finally,

the novel I’ve had percolating forever?

Should I think about,

going back to school,

and,

taking a whole new direction?

Should I consider moving to another city,

one with a better economy,

and,

better prospects?

The answer to the first question,

keeps coming back,

yes,

a resounding yes!

The other two are no’s,

I don’t want to embark,

on an academic career,

at my age,

thing is,

I don’t want a career,

I’m not ambitious,

except in the,

‘I want to be happy’,

sense.

Honestly,

I am happy,

mostly,

I want to make a little money,

replenish,

the very small,

coffers,

and move on,

towards the future,

and,

whatever that brings.

I am not fatalistic,

I think life,

has much in store for me.

It,

life that is,

has already been,

plenty generous.

It’s given me,

intelligence,

rakish good looks

(wink)

kidding,

family,

friends,

of the top notch,

variety,

and,

quite simply,

a chance to love,

the most wonderful woman in the world.

Is more really necessary?

Well,

aside,

from continued good health,

and,

an eventual Spring,

I think not:-)

So here’s to exploring,

new pastures,

roads,

streets,

and,

paths.

I figure,

with all my synapses firring,

my notebook,

backpack,

a song in my heart,

and,

an open mind,

oh, and, yeah, a compass, have to compensate for my wonky sense of direction:-)

I’m good to go.

Quite the process,

changing your direction,

when,

your trailor has been parked,

for years,

accumulated dirt and dust,

need to be scrapped and shaken,

but,

I’m up to the task,

I think,

says the shaking and quaking butch

I hope you all don’t mind,

me writing about it,

some of you,

are undoubtedly,

facing similar,

re-alignments,

or have in the past.

Have a great day.

Later girls,

BB

I am a bookish butch in my very early fifties. I live in Montréal and always have. I used to run a small used bookstore. Reading keeps me sane. My latest jiggie is photography, book project in the works, living the dream

  1. I hope you are ok; you sound like you are ok. I have been out of touch with the blog (the curse of work) and am just now catching up. Closing the book shop… sigh. So very sad! Understandable. One must make a living and the book business has changed profoundly. Me, I’m still an ink and paper girl, but we can see where it’s going.

    I’m on a new path myself and it’s a tough one. I chose the go back to university path and right now mathematics is kicking my ass. Might be rethinking the path!

    Hanging in there, you rakish butch, you!

  2. Glad to have you back:-) That is a tough path the back to school path, I had read that on your blog. Been busy huh? You know, I am fine, best decision for me. I am a paper ink girl too, although I wouldn’t give up my computer for lots. I’m sending you positive math vibes, I admire your resolve, I barely made it through high school algebra and I mean barely:-)
