WOW... so I am a total geek and, yes, I am a list making - post it posting - fool. It's undisputed, there's no resistance to this aspect of myself. I forget how I actually found Google Keep... it doesn't really matter (maybe that's why I forget shit??) At any rate I found a review of to do list programs and this one, Google Keep, was at the top of the list. Apparently released quietly and without fanfare a while back. OMG... I have to spell it out OH MY GOD!! What an amazing, easy, perfect fucking program. I paid for a life coach to help me develop a system that was exactly like this but on paper... which made it a pain in the ass and difficult, at best, to keep up to date. It's super easy to use, I can add photos and quotes, check stuff off, CAPTURE ALL MY IDEAS and TO DO's.
I was so thrilled and excited, you have no idea. I ran around the house rooting around for any and all post it notes I could find. They had random thoughts, books to read, websites to check, people to call, things to do... I found them ALL and categorized and added them to Keep. I looked in the bathroom, basement, glove box and coat pockets and purses. What a HUGE relief... it was as if all those scattered post its and lists represented my psyche and by gathering them all together I reclaimed some perspective and purpose, oh and control. This program is a boon - a godsend especially for the forgetful anal list maker.
I've also come across to do lists in odd notebooks from far past days and found it an interesting time capsule so I've created a folder and I'll capture the image of the list, like above, once a week or so as an archive. It's also a nice little back up... just in case!

Did that make you feel better?
I decided back in November 2015 to make my poetry available and journal online. I'm not exactly sure what "blogging" means but I am quite sure this is an online journal. Feel free to read on with an aire of open minded curiosity. At no time do I intend to offend, judge or pretend to know anything really, I'm just an observer and explorer, as we all are. Feel free to "boldly go" through my observations and perhaps it will spark or inspire. Comments are off because I don't want to be worried about political correctness when I'm writing. I'm not thinking about "you." I'm just writing because it feels "right". Feel free to enjoy or surf on.
