Pigeon was an omen afterall

It seems that the pigeon was meant to be an omen. It would have been more clear if it had shit on my shoulder or something, but one can't expect too much from omens.
Especially if one doesn't believe in them.

Eight in a row!

Ah, such a record. Can anyone match it?
I've just been laid off. March would have been 5 years at this job.
I dare you to claim you can match this record.

I guess now I have no excuse. I'll have to finish the rewrite of my fantasy book and send it out.
Not that anyone gets rich from writing books, but I'm only looking for a little income.

New Year begins

At least by the calendar, a new year has begun today. Many of us feel it is already about day 10 of a new year, but I can get behind the "normal" date as well.
I don't have many superstitions and even fewer rituals, but I would like to believe that how you spend the first day of the year sets the tone for the whole of the thing.
With that in mind, here's how my year has begun: I got a solid night sleep; I toasted a slice of homemade wheat/fig bread, with olive oil and sea salt; I'm writing this before I even check my email, and I've got some good coffee brewing; I'm listening to Fred McDowell's "Fred's Blues".
For the remainder of the day, I hope to get in a walk, a skirmish wargame, and some work on the book from NaNoWriMo. I also want to finish an art project for my daughter.
What are your plans for the new year?
