Continuing down the path of playing catch up with my 2017 Reading Challenge, I switched up my earlier choice for my second book to finish in April from TheCleansweep Conspiracy by Chuck Waldron (which is a self published book) to The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by Don Miguel Ruiz (which is an award-winning book). It was a book that I had meant to read for the longest but never did; and for the sake of expediency on getting to my two reading choices for May so that I don’t fall further behind, I started reading it last week.
It’s Thursday night while I’m writing this and I’m looking back on the previous weekend and this work week like it was a blur. Easter was on Sunday and I made the familiar sojourn back home to visit my family and enjoy their company for a few days. It was a much-needed break away from the city and from my daily routine as well. But I also hoped to use it as a creative opportunity.
As we creep closer to midnight, I’m just now getting a chance to really sit down and gather my thoughts from the very ‘trying’ day. Trying is perhaps an understatement of epic proportions but it wouldn’t be life without a curve ball thrown at you every inning or so. But now’s not the time for that. The time is for sharing another writing contest that I want to submit to.
