Hi, derry day in the month of May
Was the song the minstrel sang
To the good of Robin Hood
Maid Marion and all the gang

Gordon Lightfoot

It’s May. Fresh month. Fresh week. Fresh calendar.

Oh sure, it was fresher yesterday but you should have been at church instead of reading blogs. I should have too, but I was working at the park.

Ox in the ditch. You know the drill.

Here we are with a new month and we have to figure out what to do with it. The weather is finally turning warmer. Soon the pools will open and we’ll be complaining


about the heat of the summer.

However, let me just say that I prefer the heat of the summer to winter any day.

Here in May the projects continue. I work to maintain this blog, to complete The 100 Day Project, and to work on the one project I’ve determined to focus on for six weeks.

Let’s just say that I’ve not quite made the progress I had hoped.

Let’s also say that on the drive to and from the park yesterday, I rewrote my current novel project in my head.

I’m not working on that right now, but I did write down the revised outline.

We should also not forget that May is the month for graduations, mothers, and honoring those who gave all.

In case you haven’t looked at the calendar. This coming Sunday is Mother’s Day.

You are welcome for the reminder.

Let’s get on with the week.

Fox News
“Has Twitter failed in setting itself up in the past as the judge of what can go out there? And I would say yes, you have,” Maher said during a panel discussion Friday night. “You failed when you threw the New York Post off of Twitter for talking about Hunter Biden’s emails. And it turned out that was a real story. You failed when you said we couldn’t read about whether COVID had come from a lab. You failed!” Read More.

While technology has made so much of life easier, all that is best in it, all that leads to success — all relationship-building, conversation-making, craft-honing, and subject-mastering — still requires uninterrupted focus, persistent dedication, what Nietzsche called “a long obedience in the same direction.” Read More.
