Leap empty handed


This is an icy morning in North Mississippi, not particularly conducive to doing anything constructive.  In fact I have only two things on my “to do” list.

I had a message from a reader who sympathizes with my inability to focus on one thing at a time. (I usually make my bed while brushing my teeth and trying to talk on the phone.) The advice was to “leap empty handed into the void.” I like that.  In other words finish what you start before moving to the next project.


I can’t even focus on that thought. Incidentally, my book club selected our books for 2013 last night and one calls me on this dreary day. It’s entitled “Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen”  Sounds like something I could have written.

In case you’re looking for a good read, here are some of our selections:  “The Heft” (yes, that’s not a typo), “The Heart Mender” by our own Andy Andrews of Columbus, “The Language of Flowers” and “Room.”  Now, what was the point of this post?  I forget.

Whether it’s your last moment on Earth or just one of the many along the way, remember to put down what you’re doing before you start to focus on the next thing. To get the most out of anything you should always be ready to put your all into everything you do.

  2. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m
    having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  3. Heya i’m for the first time here. I found this board and I find It
