Why Wouldn’t You?

While driving around today in my car, I spotted three different motorcyclists  without helmuts.  I know the summer weather we’ve been enjoying is probably very conducive to going helmutless…letting the warm breezes flow through your hair, but come on now!  What about safety?  Just because it isn’t required by law to wear that said helmut, why take such a huge risk? I just don’t get it.  I’m all for prevention, in medicine as well as living in general.  It’s just like those who refuse to wear sunscreen to protect against skin cancer.  Why wouldn’t you do such a minor thing to prevent such a major disaster?

I always remember that famous graduation speech given by someone I”ve forgotten now, entitled  “Don’t Forget to Wear Sunscreen”.  It listed a number of things to do as you graduate from college and the last bit of advise was to put on suncreen to prolong your life.  Well said! (He should have added, wear your helmut while biking!)

writers block…..

I’ve been working on my latest book, a cook book, because I thought there would be no need for creativity (minimal at best) in writing recipes, WRONG!!! I’ve decided to preface each recipe with a short story about where the recipe originated, a description of who gave it to me or a visual picture about the dish itself. Well, I still have to create that little script using the most descriptive and enticing words to make each entry mouth-watering and something you just want to stop what your doing and try! I’m in the midst of moving and that, need I say, is putting quite a damper on my writing. Thus writers’ block is a real and daunting limbo where I’ve seemed to have landed. Oh, I know I’ll eventually move on and finish this project (I’m so close, my deadline goal is July 1). I try to do small segments daily, that’s how I was able to finish my first book. I’m banking on the fact that when I have more to do, I do more. Make sense? that’s just how I’m wired. I’m more of a morning person, so for the next few weeks, I’ll be up at dawn, writing and then on to packing those umpteen boxes.
