All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
I took a while off writing to try and figure out my new life with one working eye. Still haven’t managed to figure anything out. I suppose I should just get back to work. But I’ve decided to change the rules.
They are, after all, my rules anyway.
Do It Cheaply
The first rule is a necessity because of life and medical bills. Perfection and Pretty are not possibilities. They cost too much and take too much time to utterly fail in attempting. So, that’s gone.
Make It Count
Rule two means not messing around with stuff that doesn’t help. This is not about expressing my deepest emotions, here. What matters? Do that.
Make It Brief
You don’t have any more time than I do so I shouldn’t mince words, dodge feelings or worry about offending your delicate sensibilities. I’m going to say what I think and trust you can handle it.
Do It As I Can
I’ve got another eye surgery coming up and I have no idea what life will throw at us, so I can’t be Mr. Consistent. I’m going to take this hard and fast and see what I can manage. We’ll find out together.
That’s enough rules. I’m starting to get itchy.
I thought I’d start with a series on the very best things I know. Period! How’s that? When? ASAGA (As Soon As God Allows). Until then, may His blessings be upon you.
Keep On Standing,
