It’s Only The Beginning ….


What to do? What to do? Do I want to be a writer? Do I want to be a photographer? Maybe I’d rather knit? Crochet? Scrapbook? Go to a concert? … there are many more “What To Do’s” in my head. So I’ve decided to do All Of The Above. I seem to be waiting for Moses or Dumbledore to come down and approve/validate my “passion”. But I want to do all of them and most likely a great many more. And so I shall …

One of my favorite memories from college is standing just outside the practice rooms at Dort Music. If you listened actively enough, soon the various pieces being played would wind themselves around you like ribbons … some separate … some blending with unrelated tunes down the hall. A flute run over a vocal scale over a baritone line.  “Chaos” has always been one of my favorite words. Maybe this is the reason?

My workday is spent in stressful chaos … too much to do in far too little time to accomplish any of the tasks completely or well or at all …an impossible task list due today … and then being held responsible for the lack of time given to create an impossible task. You, too? Stressful chaos … but not here. Creative chaos is a multitude of ideas … an ever changing landscape of possibilities … “let’s try this and combine it with that and move it from here to there and add just a touch of something else to make it something original/fun/crazy/inspiring”. It probably explains why I think/write with ellipses [Ellipsis is a series of dots (typically three, such as “…”) that usually indicates an intentional omission of a word, sentence, or whole section from a text…]It’s holding the place for the thought that will return to that point. A wave. A pause. Chaos. But not.

Simply Devine Chaos begins today. I’m not certain where or what it will evolve into tomorrow. But the Beginning has begun.

Who knew I would need photos to highlight a blog post? Lucky for me, I have several 🙂

  1. Robert, you are a fantastic writer! Love the part about work..can’t imagine just how tough it actually is now. Keep will be fun to read and I’m sure your family loves it and will cherish it.


    1. Thanks Janet! You’re my first comment 😘 Work is chaos but it has been for years. What’s the line about the definition of insanity… Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome? I know you remember 😊 Thanks for caring !!!
