Frustration reinghs supreme, but then you knew that or you should have if you are paying attention.
It's been a productive although frustrating day.
I am soon to leave a responsibility that I took on two and a half years ago. On August 31, 2004 I will be offically relieved of the responsibilty. In fact I may well be done with it long before that.
It is hard for someone who takes life seriously to be too laid back about things that don't go your way. On the other hand it's the way life works and eventually I'll grow up enough to understand and accept that reality.
Not being given to long windedness in any form except flatulence, this
"blog" experience is challenging.
It is, however, good for me to press myself into this activity and carry on with this effort at self-expression.
I have come to learn that there really are two distinct types of prople in the world. There are those who accept things as they are and learn to deal with them and there are those who choose to see the world in their own way and that may or may not coincide with reality.
Having always, at least as long as I can remember, been of the reality persuasion, it is very hard for me to come to terms with those I would call the dream set. It's not that I don't dream about things as I'd like them to be, it's just that when I make up my mind to make a positive difference in something, I will first examine the "facts", as I know them, and then proceed to instigate whatever change I have decided to persue.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, but I don't go on and on in a state of denile or wishing it would be so. As Capt.Pecard said "Make it so!"
I'm closing in on the second glass of a very nice cabernet and I'm about done with this stream of consciencness.
So I'll sign off for now and say, more later...
