Yesterday was a for real Sunday at home. Never left the property.
I was busy writing all day. I appreciate it has become an integral part of my life. Some days too much, however. Yesterday was one of them.
I researched and wrote from 6:30 in the morning till 4:30 in the afternoon. Two spots. My kitchen counter and in the shade of the tiki hut on the deck.
Started with the blog. Then I had to get out next week’s column for KONK Life. It was due. I did not have a topic. A couple of things interested me. One was Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel. A hard ass from my perspective. I figured out why. One reason at least. She grew up in East Germany. The Communist side of Germany at the time. Her formative years have to be affecting how she handles things today.
I decided not to go with Merkel. Saved her for another day.
What tickled my interest was the announcement that friday, Venezuela’s President Maduro announced a new Cabinet ministry. The Ministry of Supreme Happiness. I kid you not. That is its name.
Things are bad in Venezuela. People cannot even buy toilet paper. How much worse can it get?
I wrote the KONK column about Venezuela’s new ministry. Although President Maduro views it as serious and important, I see it as a joke. My article details why.
After the KONK column, I continued revising the manuscript of The World Upside Down.
By 4:30, I was dead. I must have been. Jenna and I were going to have dinner together. The bar at the Mariott Beachside. I telephoned her and begged off.
I had to be tired to give up an evening with Jenna!
I have to readjust my schedule. Go back to the old one. Go out every night and for a few hours in the afternoon.
Enjoy your day!
