Miles to Go Before We Sleep

Welcome to the half-way point. Yes, it’s the middle of NaBloPoMo and aren’t you loving it? Heck, I know I am. It’s always a challenge but it’s for a good cause so I’m going to try to make it down the home stretch and go to the finish line this year. Only 15 more posts to go, but I’m enjoying it, I must admit.

It’s always a challenge doing these sorts of things. We sit down, we think about what we want to say, each and every day, day in and day out, we have all these grand ideas and thoughts left uncollected. Then it seems we bang out something, anything, just to pass the time and meet the challenge. It’s always the case-if it weren’t for the last minute, nothing would ever get done, right?

Weekends are the worst of it. They sort of lull you into this false sense of security. One minute, you’re dashing off to go do this or that, thinking, “meh, I’ve got all day-I can blog later” and the next? The next minute you find yourself staring down midnight wondering where all your time went and wondering just what, if anything, you can muster up to post.

The best thing about doing these is that there’s always hope. There’s always the notion that, out there in the great big grand scheme of thinking and image making that tomorrow’s going to be *the day.* You know, that day-the day you finally take that great picture or write that great masterpiece, post it, and really nail it. Sometimes it seems like we’re putting a band-aid on today, just trying to muddle through but, tomorrow? Tomorrow, man, that’s where it’s at. All hope lies in tomorrow and that, my friends, that’s the best thing about doing the challenge.

Of course, now that I said that, tomorrow’s probably going to be some kind of lame “boiled egg” cooking tip or some mindless rant about Top Gear but, hey, there’s always hope, right? We have to have hope. I mean, where would we be without that, right?

Speaking of Top Gear, I’m really enjoying the Stig-isms. I don’t know about you but, seeing which one is going to “pop up” each and every day has been sort of fun for me. I entered them all at the beginning and so, even for me (even though I made them all up) they always seem new, always a surprise. I think it’s kind of fun, actually, I wish there were some way I could continue doing that into December, but, alas, I’d probably go mad or run out at some point, Even so, they’ve been a treat and I do sincerely hope the folks at Top Gear (whoever they are) don’t mind me abusing dear Stiggy like that. (Lord Stig, oh great white helmet wearing/almost tame one, live long, prosper, and drive fast, whoever you are and where ever you might be.)

Ok, so now it’s that part of the journey-that part where we sort of settle down and start to enjoy the miles just rolling on by-nothing but open road in front of us, a full tank of hope in the back, and the engine just humming along.

Until next time…
