hey there flywheel…

We bend to find possibility amid madness and opportunity among madmen. Anything but the Normals.

It’s what you fight for

We rode west this weekend. 60 miles out, we drove past this sign (in the middle of a cemetary, and even though we were riding through Freedom, Indiana, I couldn’t help but note on the irony of a big “freedom” sign starkly placed among the dead….)

Anyway, we turned around and took some photos.  Today I’m brown. hippie brown.

 We needed some encouragement, this week Things were a little bleak since the last client hiccough. I guess I don’t look at setbacks as something to deter you, or by any means as the end of the road. More, a part of it. I still feel it, though. But not like A. A grinds to a jarring halt. Then it’s like just one pedaling a bicycle for two. But we’re learning together. We got our encouragement, today. Our potential “national” client got back in touch with us…and I got two prospects for work, one for Adeptio and one for photography.

It’s close to time to go to the gym. 5 days last week. When the payoff comes…

my horizon sits lazy
eternal beyond me
and I run in place
over miles of ground

all of this pavement
soaks up my fever
that falls from my furrious
will to turn this wheel around

maybe just once…


That in the distance…it’s what you shoot for July 27, 2007

that in the distance, that’s what you shoot forBusiness owners are neurotic. And disorganized. Neurotic and disorganized. I’m a business owner. And I work for business owners.

And I launched full boar into this whole business thing the same week I started working out, which, aside from the 2 weeks of incredible pain also builds what I call “the OCD muscle”.

I’m convinced it’s a muscle. It gets bigger the more active I am.

So here I am, neurotic, behind the ball (in defeating the infernal flab, in projects for work and potential client base, projects for self…I’ve promised myself for a long time that I’d organize a cookbook binder, or…how hard it is to blog every day? and I am sadly triumphant merely because all the laundry is done AND folded.) and having an OCD fit because of the aforementioned lack of progress and neuroses.

 Good. This is good. Admission…that’s good too. It’s a start anyway. So here’s a blog. Here’s to a page full of reviews and literature and telling disclosure.

And maybe something creative and good, just once in a while.

 I’m just picking up where I left off. Can’t say I didn’t follow through, just…backslid for a while. maybe the key to consistency is change.)
