So, I have no idea what is next in my life.
I had a plan. It was in full swing. It came crashing down.
So, now I have lots of free time that I did not expect to have and it is abundantly clear that I do not know what to do with it.
I’ve played video games; I’ve watched Youtube videos; I’ve read a few books; I’ve done some around the house landscaping; I’ve kept up with the laundry; I’ve taken long walks.
And then it occurred to me that I might use this time to review and comment on those things I’ve long wanted to review and comment on.
The things I’ve collected for this task are notecards, bookmarked webpages; liked videos; and uncompleted blog post prompts.
Part of the difficulty in simply beginning is that I find myself paralyzed by the notion of unclear categorization. How will I keep things straight and orderly? How will they relate to one another? Will there be an index? Will they be segregated by how they entered my field of observation or by the nature of their content?
I don’t have an answer for that yet. I think I’ll likely add them arbitrarily to an index as I address them. Eventually, I will hope to organize more effectively and shape the website that I have; but for now, that is beyond my scope and beyond my goal. I’m not yet to the place of creating something pretty and easy to use. Instead, I am hoping by my creation to alleviate record storage offline and provide a searchable database (albeit, cluttered and disorderly).
Here’s to the season God has given me.
