The Beginning

And in the beginning the word was............ blog. I am not too confident or suree about this exercise, but at the urging and encouragement of a good friend I am going to venture into the world of blogging. Or I might say dabble. I am not too sure if I have anything to say that might be of interest to anyone else let alone politically important or solvent. I love to read other blogs, that I find very good by the way and will add their links when I learn how, but I am not sure that I can even begin to be up to their standards.

The only thing that makes this a bit easier for me now is .........TIME. I am going to have plenty of it for awhile. I was just laid off from a teaching position and have not yet started to collect unemployment or begin my next class/life changing course, more about that later, so my friend told me that this would also be good timing to start a blog of my own.

I am not, nor to a pretend to be, a good writer like my friend. He has written since high school and has a knack. We shall refer to him in all future writing as Sam Spade, or SS for short. I have never enjoyed the act of writing fiction, or poetry or even songs. Just not my area of talent. I was always the singer, the actor, the outgoing talent. So, we shall see how this works.

I have some stories to tell as I am also trying to improve myself and my world on a daily basis, as you can tell from the title. You can find out more about the Kaizen Exercise by locating the article at a great web site that I like to read Great for personal reflection and journaling. One of many links that I will add on to this site when I learn how to do that sort of thing.

So, for now I am going to say adieu. I will contemplate what to do next and get a better look at this site.

In closing here are the Kaizen questions that you should ask yourself daily:

How can I improve my relationship w/ my spouse & family?

How might I improve my health?

What can I do today to improve my value to my company?

How can I improve my sense of enjoyment & pleasure?

What else can I improve today?

My old yogi teacher taught me to start each day with these little puzzles, as, supposedly, if you can answer them fully, you have attained, well, you're out there!

Who am I? Who am I, really?

What do I really want?

Why am I here?

Still working on them, D.
