Some people are fond of telling other people “not to do anything halfway.” And it isn’t just because my procrastination skills are legion, that I take issue with such a statement. In fact, I think there are some things that are completely appropriate to do halfway. For instance, “halfway” is a perfect place to meet someone. It is also very important that some houses be “halfway.” And, “halfway around the world,” is a lot more interesting than, all the way around the world. I mean, I’m all the way around the world right now, and no one seems very excited about it. But, why exactly am I writing this blog, extolling the virtues of “halfway,” you might ask. Well, the reason is simple. I’ve made a decision. A decision to start blogging everyday. But I’m only halfway committed to it.
You see, writing doesn’t come naturally to me. It’s a war in my brain just to get the first sentence down. And it’s not like one of those Lord Of The Rings wars, where some tree people or giant hawks show up at the very last second to save me. I’m all alone here with my coffee and refurbished Dell.
Most of the time I have no idea what to write about, and the first few things that pop into my head are unquestionably appalling. This morning I considered writing a little piece about dog hair. How does it end up in everything!? And how come my dog isn’t bald by now? Lucky for you, that’s about all I have to say about that.
So I’m gonna give this a try. Write a little something everyday. To be totally honest, this probably won’t last too long, but whatever. Please comment, but be warned, It will only encourage me.
Meantime, I thought I’d share the cover art to my new record with y’all. Design by my friends Dave and Andi at filterindustries.com and photo by none other than Dr. Joshua Deuteronomy Lamkinstein the third, Esq.
Have a halfway decent day.
