Rave: Secrets, Like Dragons

Here's something worth knowing about...

A longtime friend of mine, Steven Schend, has launched a Kickstarter project and I ask my friends here to seriously consider supporting it. The project is called "Secrets, Like Dragons..." and can be found at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1136561409/secrets-like-dragonsare-tales-untold. Steven has a goal of publishing a collection of short stories as what I hope will be the first of many stories set in his world of Kharndam. I have had the privilege of reading many of Steven's stories over the years and am looking forward to the interpretations of his world at the hands of the authors he is working with. Those who know him and his writing will agree, he is a bit of a perfectionist (in the positive sense) and always strives to produce the best written work possible, and I know this will carry through in this Kickstarter project. So, again, I ask you to contribute to Steven's project... You won't be let down.

Been here before?

Ever have one of the days when you realize you were busy and accomplished quite a bit, but you're not exactly sure what you did? You started your day with a list of things to do, but by the end of the day, you're staring at that very same list of things that still need to be done. "That can't be right!" you think. You're tired and need to sit down, get a bite to eat and grab a beer*. Relaxed, you review the day. You were out there, doing stuff, going places, meeting people, and making "it" happen. (aww man, it just happened again... I lost big chunk of text... Like half of this... The agony of delete on an iPad I suppose... Where's undo?)

I've had one of those weeks. Eight days actually. Meetings. "putting out fires." lots of work. More meetings. A quick weekend that wasn't as restful as I needed and then it started all over again. I missed last week's Monday night blog posting (sorry about that) due to the fast paced blur that life has been lately. I'm determined to get the situation back under control.

I hope your day has been better than mine.

* - beer, or beverage of choice. I like to have a beer when my day ends.
