Learning the basics of WordPress.

“La Artista Invisible” (my wife Andrea at work)

I’m renovating this site and blog. I plan to add a podcast, and other enjoyable and useful elements.

I’ve quickly discovered that my quick-start approach has me  up in the air well enough, though in a plane that has quite a few features that are baffling to me. This makes not for fun flying.

Thankfully, I’m not actually up in a plane. I’ve found flying machines impossible to park in the sky whilst getting up to speed with the manual.

Simply Begin Simply

I tried to add a screen shot to this post of the driving route from my home in Fayetteville, Arkansas to Deadhorse Airport on the northern coast of Alaska. 4,138 miles in 76 hours. The screen shot using Grab on my MacBook is a tiff file. WordPress won’t accept that image. Sometimes beginning simply gets complicated. My shoulders are tightened with tension and getting really close to my ears. Ah ha.

Mementos

I just put my high school diploma and my flight school certificate into the recycle bag. I took a photo of each one first. I decided recently that I have entirely too much stuff. I enjoy memorabilia, to some degree. I find it heatwarming to look at old photos and journals. At the same time, I also feel a bit burdened. How do I organize these things? Share them? Preserve them?

I realize this isn’t a big problem in the grand scheme of things. Currently, I’m thinning out the collection.

Crocuses coaxing; winter waning.
Maybe now I’ll stop complaining.

Joy may be coaxed or catalyzed, but rarely captured.
