Hello and welcome. I am Adam.
I’m not sure how I should start this. Feels a bit like I’ve won an award. I figure I’ll thank the site owners for the opportunity to make this blog. I think I can find the time in between my adventures to scribble something here. I’m bound to secrecy, and have been told that I mustn’t disclose what happens later in my Journey. But I can talk about the Journey so far. I’ll also be able to let you know when a new adventure is released, with a new outfit crochet pattern.
The blog will mostly be my musings. I will be trying to find the positive in having a glass which is half full of fluid.
A suspension of reasoning may be required while reading. No bad thing, a lack of reasoning can be the catalyst for making a positive change.
I had a busy 2016 and am glad to see the new year. I hope to write this blog throughout 2017. It may be a good idea to read my
semi-autobiographical condensed memoirs first. I didn’t draw the pictures, and some of the names have been changed. The author has employed a creative licence. I mean, I didn’t say “it’s like someone’s watching over me”. I said, “it’s like my story’s make believe”. Hey-ho.
Please keep in mind that my intent is to bring you positive, fun entertainment. This is not advice or a professional service. I am a fictional character trying to find my way.
Here we are in 2017, it will be a great year.
It’s a nice number. 2016 was a bit drab – I think it is the shape of the 6 on the end there. The 7, well, that is a nice number. Open, unclosed, free and liberating. That is my emotional interpretation of the digit applied as a predictive science.
I don’t know where 2017 will take me but I hope it will be a happy year.
I just finished a short-term contract. Christmas was their busy period and there really isn’t much to do in the off season. I think I’ll return next year. My boss seemed to like me. Told me to keep my uniform. He is one of those people that believe in fate. Jolly nice guy.
I left a week or so ago. A pay cheque and the open road. Got a bag with my clothes, a few meals, couple of bottles of water and this laptop. I'll email this blog in and I’m told it will go on the site a week or so later – they check it and make sure there’s nothing outlandish in there.
I will be travelling through a town soon. I’ll be looking to secure a place to rent for a bit. Weather’s not the best, but I have booked rooms on route.
I look forward to having a place to settle for awhile. The town has so many cool places to visit -I’m thinking I’ll hang around and check them out.
I still have the mask I was gifted last year. Just a nice thing to have. I wasn’t expecting the gift, and was genuinely happy to get it. Well, I’ll give it pride of place once I’m set up.
Time is so vast, and my interaction with it, so minute.
Whenever I am held back by the idea of failure I remember that 20 years from now, no one will care.
In 60 years only a few people on earth will know I exist, and none will be concerned by an effort I once made.
In 100 years I will be a photo on a wall, a happy memory, an inheritance.
In 300 years no person, with the force of life within, will likely know that I ever existed.
It puts it into perspective for me.
I have the opportunity to act and do so with optimism.
The rain has stopped now and I’ll have to be on my way. I’ll sort myself out in town and send this in.
If I am forgiven for being so bold I will wish you well and hope to write you soon.
