Embracing Change… Again??

One of the ten pillars that drive my life is to embrace change and I certainly do my share of it here at RJsCorner and my life in general. The coming changes include looking both forward and backwards.

I know one thing for sure, and that is, I have had my fill of things political. It does nothing but bring dread into my life now. I have better things to do than to worry about all those who fear just about everrything and seem to be everywhere now! So, with the stroke of the pen I say “Politics Be Gone”. Well, maybe not entirely. When the current Oval Office occupant does something INCREDIBLY STUPID, I might give it a word or two in my weekly snippets.

During the winter months I have a lot of time on my hands. My lack of physical balance due to my deafness makes it dangerous to walk where there might be ice. So much of my time is on a home detention from mid-November to mid-March. 🙂 That leaves me lots of time to think and read and that automatically generates ideas for daily posts here on RJsCorner. I sometimes have to remind myself that I shouldn’t post more than once a day. I don’t want to become a pest to all my followers.

And then when Spring finally happens, sometimes quickly, but often tragically slow, it is time to go into my “Summer mode”. The first thing on the agenda is to try to shed the extra 8 lbs I gained from the lack of significant exercise during the winter months. That is getting harder and harder to do as the years go by.

The “Summer mode” also means lots of work taking care of the of the 2+ acre homestead and the one-hundred year old farmhouse that sits on it. It also means I pull the uRV (micro RV) out of the barn and get it ready to hit the road again. There is always something I have dreamed up during the winter months that needs improvement in my little home-away-from-home. This year it is designing and fabricating a new lower storage unit. I gotta show you some pictures of that.

Lot’s of things to do in the “Summer Mode”


Now let’s spend some time looking backwards at least as far as this blog goes. I have done a lot of different things in this ten year stretch of its existence. Maybe I should bring back some of those things to fill the vacuum from avoiding the ugliness of politics? Maybe you can help me with those decisions.

  1. When I decided to move my photography work to another venue, I really didn’t intend to make it disappear entirely from RJsCorner. Maybe I should bring some of my favorites back here?
  2. The blog that eventually morphed into RJsCorner was entitled InSearchOfAmerica and a serious part of that were my “On The Road” reports while traveling across America. I really enjoyed talking about the historical part of my trips. Maybe I should bring some of that back?
  3. I have been dabbling in poetry. No, you didn’t read that wrong! As a young teenager, I thought I was pretty good at that, but since none of my works from that era survived I can’t verify that with a more mature eye now. But I have been learning and experimenting with it lately. Maybe I should publicly try my hand at that?
  4. This winter I have accumulated painting apps that use a picture I have taken to make them into artworks of several different styles. I think I would like to try my hand at that?

As you can see, I have ideas for lots of changes here on RJsCorner. I know I will be limiting my posts to two to three times a week, but I haven’t really decided which new items I want to tackle. What would you like to see from this seventy-three year old deaf guy in the coming months?

I would certainly welcome your input.
