We all have things to do. Me too!
Went to Lafayette Tuesday evening to a Louisiana Produces meeting. Got home at 11:45am through immense fog. Wednesday I was on autopilot which I don't remember much of. Thursday, feeling better, I entered two writing contests.
Busy week! Today, I visited with my adorable mother who dyed her hair red. It came out light reddish/brown... she was not happy. I figure it was a progressive week!

we all make time for what is important. whether we are shopping, sleeping, eating, or something else, we all think that there is all the time that we want. What if time was not infinite but finite? What would you do differently?
Think about this the next time you are talking to your son, daughter, wife,mother,father?..?.

It's Saturday in Southwest Louisiana, usually a slower day for me, and my mind (and body) turns to how cold it's been in recent years. We all know about the THEORY of global warming, huh? I ask all of you, if the THEORY is to be taken as fact and thus take millions upon billions of dollars to combat, shouldn't we be seeing a spike in temperatures year round?

We attempt many things during our lives. Some attempts are a success, others flop. Many times, we find sorrow in the failures, but that's not always the case.
What did Thomas Edison say? He found 1,000 ways not to make a light bulb. Or something like that..
Writer's can find solace in a rejection by the positive things. If they don't say, 'This is horrible,' or 'Don't quit your day job,' that's a good thing. If they offer compliments or say 'Keep in touch,' that can propel us to feeling great.
Don't let failures defeat you, but instead look on the bright side of life.

I have often been asked why like science-fiction so much. The reason is simple. Unlimited possibilities…
In science-fiction anything is possible and it has nothing to do with reality. It has only been since I met my wife, Kelley, that I have watched CSI and stuff like that. Although I must admit that the writers of those shows really do an excellent job, still, what you are watching on the screen is oftentimes a sensationalized version of what could happen.
Through the magic of science-fiction, the world around us becomes a wondrous place where anything can happen and does on a frequent basis. I mean, you go to the limits of fact and then change your story into something that is not possible, but it is plausible, and it brings out an aspect of human nature.
Humanity is so interesting. Psychologically, We are flawed and our intellect competes with our motions on many levels. Combine this with Science fiction and you are limitless.
