Inspiration

I took some vacation in conjunction with the Christmas and New Year holidays which provided me two weeks away from the office. Nice, but on my Facebook page, I was lamenting that I needed to get back to work for inspiration for a future blog posting, noting that no one would want/need any tips on how to walk your dog or over-cook a crown roast of pork or watch all three seasons of Downton Abbey in seven days or less (all of which I did).

I don’t really have any tips on how to walk your dog other than to make it quick when it’s cold outside. But I did like what my friend, Diane, said–to compare it to walking through a process (I want to make that quick also but understand that you have to be patient and spend the time necessary to get the job done!).  And over-cooking the roast to over-thinking a task (how often do we do that, making something more complicated than it really is?).  And, spending time (in reference to the 7 blissful days of Downton Abbey–the plot, the characters, as well as the divine music by the Chamber Orchestra of London) immersing yourself in something you want to learn (and leave you wanting to learn even more).

Where do you find inspiration?

  1. Phyliis – I look forward to your blogs and enjoy reading each one (also the pictures). I don’t know whether you get many comments but wanted you to know how I enjoy them. It gets my brain going and wondering how I could be utilizing Open RDA even more that I already do. Thanks for all you do! Debbie Sturgell

    • Thanks, Debbie. I don’t receive as many comments as I would like (without them, I don’t know whether my blogs and the emails are an intrusion or of value). I really do appreciate your comments.

  2. This one really hit home with me. I have to admit that I like shortcuts (technology has brought us to a new level of patience–NONE). I also find myself over-thinking a task and making it more difficult. Something to stew on…Thanks…Janice Beahm

    • Thanks for commenting, Janice. I suppose overthinking is better than not thinking at all, right?

      By the way, it took three outings this morning in very cold weather for my dog, Bailey, to get the job done.

      Thanks, again.

Making It Relevant

Knowing what “flowers” you’ll find appealing (i.e., of interest) has been a challenge since I  began writing my blog last August. We’re able to track...
