I have remained employed through the last year and a half of what I refer to the “Abbey Normal” . But I have been pretty much on my own at work due to social distancing. I am by myself in a 10,ooo square foot room to do my work. But the work load has been very low most days. So I try to keep myself amused.
Social media is a gift and a curse. I am posting mainly to keep my mind active during the day. Can I find something amusing? Can I possibly write something amusing or interesting to go with it? I just need to keep going. I have to amuse myself. And I post just to get these various ideas out there.
I want to learn new things daily. Explore my own curiosities. Channel surf. Example. I need at times music playing in the background as I attempt to take my notes and with “Some Assembly Required” make them into a blog posting. (Which lately I fell out of habit with doing. ) And the song by the band Missing Persons – Destination Unknown for me was the right song on my feelings of curiosity. And came to find out the singer performed on Frank Zappa albums. It is a detail like this that puts me into “The Wormhole”.
There are two books I have been slowly reading the last few weeks. For me. They are about how can I take a.different approach or have a different outlook on my various creative endeavors.
In a world of rules and regulations about what should be created and how. This book is a reminder that you can remember how you started being creative before you came into contact with the “systems”. I have to give credit to where I found out about this book.
And this lead to me reading his weekly newsletters.
I try to read more these days the articles that inform me. Rather than the ones that are designed to outrage. Those ones are way to easy to find.
I rather want to Stay Curious.
Explore. Discover. Create.
My laptop computer is down. And this post was written using the WordPress app on my Kindle.It is just another tool and I have to adjust to its nuances. So Yes. Additional swearing was involved.
And I have quite a few notepad pages to go through and assemble future postings.
