Today is the first day of the new year. Today, I am beginning a new, now self-imposed, post a day challenge.

As we read yesterday, I was 318 of 365 posts in 2011. I more than doubled my total posts on this blog, as it has moved from blogger to wordpress.com to my own hosted wordpress site. I had ideals of 750 words per post, and they actually ranged from no words and only photos to 1,300 words.

I will hope to write at least one quality post a week, this year. I will hope to have an average of 750 words to get the thought processes to move and digest my day and comment on the things around me. I will hope to fulfill this challenge.

So, I will continue with little to no rules. I will continue taking time to post once-a-day, even if it means tapping away at the keyboard while darling husband tries to explain his latest sinus problem. I will double up on days that I forget to post. I will post more than once a day. The goal, simply stated, is to come out on December 31, 2012 with no less than 366 posts. It’s a leap year; we now have an extra day.

To kick off this new year, here’s a small post of just over 200 words. Perhaps something to whet your appetite. Let’s ring in the new year!

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
