Tomorrow begins! To write a poem a day
For a month! I first thought: No! The task would weigh
Upon me heavily. I’ve too much to do
To add another daily task. I knew
In my heart I’d never finish. I can’t — if I’m smart —
Accept the challenge. Never! —
When can I start?

The explanation.

Changes hit bumps

  1. Amazing how you can tell somebody something in explicit, specific terms and because of their presuppositions and expectations, they hear something different.

  2. Changes will often hit bumps. Expect them. Take them into account. Use them as opportunities.

  3. People stay glued to their cellphones. Except when you have something urgent you need to find out from them.

  4. People liked the video I did yesterday, some want more. Do I have the time for that?

  5. Stay away from those who invade your privacy. That means online companies who collect and sell your personal data.

  6. An original verse: Praise from others is the only reward / Of those who pray for notice — by God they’re ignored.

  7. A Bible verse: “When this voice was conveyed from heaven, we ourselves heard it, for we were with him on the holy mountain” 2 Peter 1.18.
