I am back to work on a new project after a stint on the AT and Olympic National Park - what fun...
I have decided to concentrate on Children's books and have been commissioned by an author to publish a series of 15 books over 3 volumes - you can see her work at http://facebook.com/GemstoneElves
Please visit her site and let me know your feelings on the viability of her project - thank you... w
I have been overloaded since last Fall and finally hit a wall - there just wasn't any energy left for working 12 hour days... Even though I must admit that it has been an awesome 6 month run... And they all eventually come to an end... And the "Bigger they are, the harder they Fall" is dead on.
Maybe it was that I have been watching Mad Men and got a look at myself right inside My mind - scary how We acted back then with the smoking, drinking, and Womanizing. We have come a long way and I am NOT proud about being one of Them - it is important for all Boomers to understand that "Stop Signs don't get put up until their is an accident"... This period of my life was just plain over the Top!
So I ran into this Wall and just had to Stop - just too much on my plate and my greed was getting the best of me. Time to let go of the BIG Plan and concentrate on only the best parts - prime stuff rather than the Whole PIE...
Been doing neat shit as the weather here in the Appalachians for a Wisconsin Farm Boy is like May... Went down to Lover's Leap on the AT... It will be a while until my mind clears...
I am considering going out to New Mexico next Summer and renting out my place in downtown Marshall. NC - started thinking about logistics and it looks workable without Me having to do laborious stuff... Me thinks so far?
Somewhere between Las Cruces and Silver City over to Truth - there is a Ranger Station on 61 that serves the backwoods of the Cibola National Forest that I want to volunteer for the Summer season. I need to bond with that area before I die and I can run this business from anywhere. I have decided to farm out all but 3 projects that I need to concentrate on rather than being spread so thin.
If anyone has an opinion where to light, please comment?
If anyone is interested, I have some great ideas for projects and will be happy to share or Partner - whatever works... w
When I first went to Manhattan for AT&T in the late 60's, they were in a battle with IBM for control of the image as the leader in the future of electronics - we did not use outside firms so We were called Internal Mad Men...
I am working on a story about some real Mad Men - anyone wishing to collaborate, please leave a comment.
Happy writing... w
Meaning: Other than fatty tissue on a Human, a term to signify a Man’s strength, brawn
Origin: Cow comes from Middle English - peasants ate buef (French)
Colonial Relationship: Settlers ate little beef on the Frontier as it was too valuable a commodity to barter for something else needed by the Family. Most meat was from hunting wild game which was plentiful in 1800.
Note: At Christmas, roasted beef was considered a delicacy in most Frontier Families
Beef-brained/headed = dotish (foolish), stupid and thick-headed
To “Cry Beef” = alarm
To “Be in a Man’s Beef’ = wound with a sword
To “Be in a Woman’s Beef” = to have carnal knowledge with Her
