I think that’s all I have to say today.
I say vacation but I spend all my time writing-which is the point.
My year sabbatical ended back in May but I’ve been coming out here to a nondisclosed lake location to write and swim and visualize where I want my career to be this time next year.
That said, if 2019 is another year of random road trips through the mountains to swim in the lake, that’s fine with me.
That is another 300+ blog posts between now and then.
I slept in this morning. I usually wake up around 8 AM but today I needed two extra hours of sleep. Maybe I feel the energy of the masses racing to get one last long weekend trip in before the kids go back to school and normal life resumes.
I will return home mid-week after everyone else has settled in.
I realized this week that everything I create or hope to create will not be read, viewed or listened to by the masses.
I speak to a small select group who choose to live differently.
Some members of mass society will venture out to discover my writing as a way to live vicariously through my stories.
I never liked the idea of living vicariously through anyone, especially not my offspring. I have always been determined to give myself all the experiences that I want. Throughout my life.
This experience of creating something that matters is a daunting yet exciting one.
Can I entertain a select portion of humanity?
If I can, what other doors of opportunity will open?
This blog is not the end result, this is just the beginning. I do this for free. I have no desire to stick a bunch of annoying ads on here.
This blog draws readers which creates a small yet mighty following who find me entertaining, which leads to other ventures that pay me well.
And the better I do in life, the better you do in life. The better you do in life, the better I do in life.
After I make pancakes for breakfast, I’m going to drive up the mountain to some trails to see if I can get more photos of the lake.
I am not a photographer but these iPhones take such great photos nowadays.
I wish you a happy long weekend!
