How Life Looks In June, 2009.


I find myself with very little to write for this blog at the moment. I'm writing a book for my kids in my spare time, and it has proven to be a very fun and rewarding experience so far. I read the boys the new parts as I write them, and they critique and make suggestions. My oldest son walked into my bedroom this morning as I was putting on my shoes with a few pointed questions about some of the main characters in the story, which was fun. My primary creative outlet over the last year and a half or so has been this blog. The more I blogged, the fewer other kinds of things I wrote. I think it may be time to tip the scale back the other way a little bit, at least for a while.

School is out, and I have my degree. No more assigned readings for awhile, no more tests. That is nice. I'm going to have a beer and go cut the grass. After that, I might have another beer, and flip through a book of short stories: Maybe T.C. Boyle, or Ray Bradbury. I am happy. Life is good. Life is short. Go outside and take a deep breath. We don't get to do this thing forever, you know.

I'll be in touch.

Congratulation. And also you will also have more time to master the unicycle.

Spencer Troxell said...

Thanks, Willie. And yes, plenty of time for the unicycle. Very exciting. Between now and whenever I get a job, I am basically a Mr.Mom with a part-time weekend job. The unicycle will be mastered. Should I put that on my resume?

If the circus is in your future, you bet.

Thank you. You too.
