Is it ok not to blog?

Why, of course it is! Sometimes life gets in the way of writing for your own sake. By life I mean work, volunteer activities, taking care of family and working on taking care of yourself.

Sometimes you are better off letting others tell your stories for you. But, I thought I’d share a little bit today. A couple of projects are finally jelling together. I’ve had most of the ingredients: the idea, the plan of action, the creative spark and now, finally, the physical energy. The fiscal great recession hasn’t helped. And, quite frankly, the campaign and the elections of 2012 have been a huge energy suck. Besides sucking billions, if not millions of dollars away from those who would sponsor creative projects, and perhaps, community centric infrastructure projects, it sucked the great thing I think of when I think of being an American–that spirit stuff. I think I’m getting at least that spirit stuff back, on a personal level so that I can start being creative and even more productive than I’ve been.

I’ve got a great business partner in Los Angeles. She’s a real communications and media marketing pro. And, we’re going to be working on some projects together and hopefully, you’ll be able to hear more about them soon. I will be cryptic about them. I have to be. It’s unfortunate that the best ideas get stolen, or otherwise, taken from you. Once you, to use a self-help term, “put it out to the universe” suddenly, sh-zam! There are no secrets in the universe. Suddenly someone else is as brilliant as you!

Hopefully the whole country will be more in the mood to share positive spirits and can-do, and “we’ve got your back” attitudes again. And, yes, the final ingredient for my project will come my way—money. If only I could get things done without it. But, we all know that good intentions won’t pay my self-employment tax and social security. And, it won’t pay my doctors, health insurance bill, and for gasoline. No, it won’t buy me love. And love, dear readers, is what I hope to get from all of you. Ok..I’ll take “likes.”

Happy April 15th everybody! May the IRS be with you!

Thanks for reading.
