Microsoft WordI’m working on centralizing and streamlining my business so I’m experimenting with different tools to find out which ones work, which ones work best, and which ones work together.

I would love to be able to post from #Word but I’m concerned that it’s going to stuff a lot of unnecessary code in to the post.

If you try to copy and paste an article from Microsoft Word for blogging you need to check the code because there is so much unnecessary code behind the scenes now that it dilutes your #SEO impact.  One suggestion would be to open #MSNotepad and copy and paste into notepad first, and from there copy and paste onto your blog.

We’ll see, and I’ll keep YOU posted!

SpammersI almost feel kind of sorry for the guy because he is so not understanding the instructions for being a professional #spammer and he posted the below comment exactly as you see it below.  I’d always kind of vaguely wondered how they went about it all and now I know the inside secret and you will, too!  It’s not the most exciting secret in the world but it is intriguing.

I walk ahead of myself in perpetual expectancy of miracles.
Anais Nin

I have been overcome by the beauty and richness of our life together, those early mornings setting out, those evenings gleaming with rivers and lakes below us, still holding the last light.
Anne Morrow LindberghChurch candles.

When we accept tough jobs as a challenge to our ability and wade into them with joy and enthusiasm, miracles can happen.
Arland Gilbert

When we do the best that we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.
Helen Keller

All technique is about one thing: making the actor strong and willing to allow the miraculous to occur.
Larry Silverberg

We live in a world of theophanies. Holiness comes wrapped in the ordinary. There are burning bushes all around you. Every tree is full of angels. Hidden beauty is waiting in every crumb. Life wants to lead you from crumbs to angels, but this can happen only if you are willing to unwrap the ordinary by staying with it long enough to harvest its treasure.

“To the as-yet-unborn, to all innocent wisps of undifferentiated nothingness: Watch out for life.

I have caught life. I have come down with life. I was a wisp of undifferentiated nothingness, and then a little peephole opened quite suddenly. Light and sound poured in. Voices began to describe me and my surroundings. Nothing they said could be appealed. They said I was a boy named Rudolph Waltz, and that was that. They said the year was 1932, and that was that. They said I was in Midland City, Ohio, and that was that.

They never shut up. Year after year they piled detail upon detail. They do it still. You know what they say now? They say the year is 1982, and that I am fifty years old.

Blah blah blah.”

“Dead Eye Dick” by Kurt Vonnegut

For identity to play such an important part of the lives we design – or living like”nothing they said could be appealed” – I’ve become very Splat's Lusty Lavenderattached to finding my hair identity. I’ve had a box of Splat’s “Lusty Lavender” under my sink for over 5 years and pine to try it every time I open the cabinet door.

What’s held me back? My own idea that it would be unprofessional to express myself outrageously with a vividly unnatural hair color. So I’ve fantisized about Ombre, highlights and bangs and playing with hairstyles that would allow a more natural color to fall over the outrageous color to hide it.

Vain? Shallow? Just plain silly? Maybe. But oddly, the less I felt like I could have it the more I wanted it. All right, not so oddly – that’s just the way we humans seem to work, but its led me to be very creative in trying out different hair colors. Since my hair pulls a very brassy color, I’ve had to wear some dooseys. Whoosh. I’m going to rummage around my hard drive and see if I can find some of the more entertaining ones, so be sure and stay tuned, but in the meantime here I am. I’m pondering Who am I? What would fully express who I am? and How do I make it work in my life?

Those are some pretty deep questions. Continue reading »
