Book Review: Blue Like Jazz

     I enjoyed reading Donald Miller’s Blue Like Jazz and posted a review at Kronicles of KD. In a backwards fashion, I watched the movie before I read the book. The book and movie were cathartic journeys through kaleidoscopic emotions and differed delivery of the source material. Take a moment to check out the review, leave a comment here or checkout the book on Amazon.

 Thanks Again~

Remembering the Day

     Memorial Day is here and it is another reminder to honor the days gone by; before they fade into the ocean of the past.  Memorial Day is for honoring fallen members of the United States military and paying respect to their memory.  I feel that it may also be a time to reflect on the past and remember friends and family through the times shared together.

A Year With No Progress

     Another year, another Mother’s Day, came and went with little impression that I was serious about writing.  My intention was to take a few weeks and gather some steam then dive back in boldly.  Sadly that was not the case.  I looked back at the Forcing The Issue, Doin' Sh*t With Pat, and Kronicles of KD from time to time with feelings of amusement, longing and a dash of shame.

Happy Mother's Day... I Need A Vacation

     Mother's Day is coming and there's no big update from me on the writing front.  I wrote a half-assed article for Doin' Sh*t With Pat, but fully intent to full-assedly complete it with pictures, calculations and variations on the recipes.

Motivational Deficit

From "Must... use POWERS!"
     So I've had a little problem with motivation of late that no amount of passion and drive has been able to surmount.  I planned on writing about several of the projects I've completed for Doin' Sh*t With Pat, but family, work, prior commitments and a plethora of good movies seem wear my resolve.  That might have sounded like a humble-brag, but it was only intended to be the defining variable in this experiment in disciplined writing.  (P.S. I am really looking forward to the Avengers and the start of a summer of killer movies!)

Completed a DSWP Entry

"From Men's Body Wash @ Doin' Sh*t With Pat"

     Well I finally completed the long overdue entry for my "Doin' Sh*t With Pat" blog.  It's not the best article, but it's finished and I am ready to move on.  I should not have used the Men's Body Wash project as the first entry, but it was a learning experience.
     The hardest part I have had with "Forcing the Issue" and "Doin' Sh*t With Pat" was the editing/formatting.  I spent the majority of the time fighting with the Blogger interface trying to format the article in a readable fashion.  I did that for each blog entry here as well.  It could very well be a 2:1 ratio in favor of format fighting vs. writing.
