Hi everyone, here is another flow article. In these articles, I just try to write about what is in my mind without filtering or being overly coherent. Enjoy, or skip, as you wish, my friends!
101: I made it to post 101! I was planning to write a celebratory, perhaps self-congratulatory post when I got to 100. I suppose I could go back and delete on of the posts, thereby making this post 100, but I am not going to do that.
101: As a sequence, 101 makes me think of things going forward, then losing all progress and going back to zero, then miraculously getting back to one. There’s hope in that message. Life is never over until it is over. Don’t give up! Life has been said to be cyclical. I tend to think of life as a spiral. Patterns repeat themselves, but there is overall movement.
101: There was a highway that led into Timmins when I was a kid. Timmins seemed like a big city then. We ‘made it’ when we got to Timmins. Then when you are in Timmins, of course you have to check out the 101 Mall, which was way bigger than anything we had in Cochrane. Then the Timmins Square, another mall, opened, and it was more beautiful and more modern. It had a K-Mart! Remember those? They had ‘red light specials’, and who wouldn’t be interested in those? It made me wonder what music I should choose for this post: Maybe “Red Light Special” by TLC, or Lady Red Light, by Great White? Those are more sexy songs than I have put on the blog before… maybe I will choose something else.
Well, that’s pretty much all that 101 makes me thinks about; well, one more thing, but I won’t share it now. Have a great day!
