Sundays only now (not Wednesdays)
Friends, I am striving to follow the advice I put forth in my last column; less is more (when it comes to words).
I will now be publishing this column on Sundays only (no longer on Wednesdays).
Indeed, the vast majority of published online columns similar to this one are already once-weekly columns.
For those who would prefer columns twice a week, I sincerely apologize. (If for some reason once-a-week does not work out well, I will reassess.)
However, I have a new grandson coming in early August. I expect to be helping quite a bit with babysitting the newcomer, James Benjamin Talley - along with his two-year-old big sis, Lenna Kate.
I hope to visit my grown grandchildren more, too. And all my other family. And many an old friend.
Old timey face-to-face visiting; I hope to do more of it around my hometown and region - before I’m eventually called to meet my Maker face-to-face.
(If you live locally and would like a friendly visit from yours truly, please drop me an invitation and I will be thrilled to come by sometime.)
Honestly … the greater, and perhaps more real, reason for my going to publishing one day a week is that I “feel it in my soul” to do so; such is the method I follow for pretty much everything I do in life - and this method has yet to guide me astray in the long run (and the “long run” is what counts most).
I somewhat sneakily suspect that it is perhaps even likely that I will be throwing as much of my time into the one weekly column as I previously did for the two. (Yes, I am laughing at myself, even now. The best laid plans of mice and men … )
Time. We only have so much of it. Yet we all have the exact same amount of time each and every day. How we spend our time tells us who we are.
I very much look forward to spending at least one day a week with my friends who read this column. May such a thing continue to be so … for as long as you are interested … and for as long as I am able.
By supporting this column, Hometown Stories, please remember that you are also helping me support many wonderful causes around Bristol; causes which give unique opportunities to many local children, inmates reuniting with their families, and the homeless population.
Thank you all.
See you all come each and every Sunday morn!
