Give Aways

  • It will probably be another working weekend but I have to keep on hustling. I had a work-related disappointment earlier this week, when a writing contract/deal fell through. (Not the first time.) Especially after busting my butt for several previous days. I'm used to it, anyone who is a freelancer knows this is how it is. Even those who have a book deal. Deals come, they may start, they may go. I'm not dwelling because I have other projects to work on, but to say I'm not disappointed would be a lie. I have to believe that everything happens for a reasons and something else will come along.

Update: The baby Robin which I'm positive was freshly kicked out OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAof the nest last week, came back for rest? I thought he was injured but I went outside to make sure, and he eventually flew off. Not quick enough though, if I was an outdoor cat or a mean Blue Jay he would have been dead or beaten up. When he did get up, I noticed that he was sitting in a nice pile of his own #2. Yuck. He better get it together or he will not make it through the summer. Doesn't he look pathetic?

  • I also went to the river-front this week, for the first time since Winter and it was a sad mess. A good portion is closed off, because of asbestos found in tested earth. Courtesy of factories in the past (some closed) dumping garbage, chemicals, and who knows what else. That's nice to know that children (myself included) in the past and present have been rolling around, sledding and doing whatever else, throughout their childhood. Just great. As if the air in my city wasn't deadly enough. No joke on that, world-wide my city is high on the pollution list.

-I was also upset about the lack of baby ducks and geese that are usually plentiful around the area. Maybe they'll come and I'm still a little early but even the adult crowd seemed smaller. The usual hangout is partially cut off, by those green metal fences. Just sad and a huge reminder that companies in the present and future need to be mindful of their actions and how it will effect the future. Animals and people.

Thank you to those who come back to read my ramblings and to those of you who are new. I'll also congratulate myself, because although blogging can be fun it's a lot of work. There are days where I don't feel like writing a word, or uploading a photo. I blog because it keeps me writing when I feel like I can't write anything else. And as I move along in my writing I want to share the ups & downs. Who knows if anyone else is struggling or thriving along with me. It's also a great diary to look at in the future. So...OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
