For the past two days I have been trying to figure out the code in my blog. I wanted to add some bells and whistles but all I came up with was a lot of badly tuned instruments played by musicians with a tin ear.
I am pretty sure that you can sometimes spend too much time trying to tweak tings to make getting around more fun and exciting. The daily grind can always use a new coat of paint; or so I thought. It's all too easy to make things worse by trying to make them easier. Eventually you find that you have to go back and fix all the things that you added, then cleaning up the mess that going backwards entails takes up even more time.
The art of keeping things simple is one thing that I would really like to perfect. It'd be nice if I could streamline things and be able to have enough hours in the day to do something besides trying to earn a buck.
Someone very close to me (And some of you, too.) once told me that: "sacrifice is the greatest donation you can make to a person, cause or ideal. Just make sure that you truly understand what you are giving up when you relinquish that gift."
