Life Goggles

Chapter 2, Verse 1: The Return

Posted in Apology, Life by rreynolds2186 on July 5, 2012

Well, Chapter 1 was short, wasn’t it?

It has been awhile and I will take ownership that it is all my fault. Almost two years to the day of my last post on this illustrious, widely praised and read blog (I still hate that word). And yes, I know this blog is neither widely praised nor widely read.

Laying in bed last night, my mind began to drift and I recalled “Life Goggles,” my wonderful pursuit at writing fame that started so promisingly and then dropped off but three posts later. I had such high hopes for it. I really didn’t care if anyone actually read it, I just wanted to have a place to write and chronicle thoughts and life events.

And then I “Studio 60”-ed it. Hot out of the gate, sputtered to the finish.

It’s a recurring theme in my life: grand visions and plans followed by an equally swift flame out. I once had a St. Louis sports-themed podcast that lasted three episodes. I’ve attempted to write many short stories that I quit working on after the first few pages. Ideas for movie scripts that never really get off the ground were always common.

Part of it is laziness, part of it is lack of motivation.

Although I did note in my first post that no promises could be made in terms of how often “Life Goggles” would be updated, my intentions were not to let this sit idle for as long as it did. But you don’t care about all of that. You came here for hard hitting journalism and that is what you are going to get. Or maybe not.

Point is, if anyone is out there currently reading this, I appreciate that you would stop by my little corner of the world and read the words that have ended up here. My sincere hope is that the continuation of “Life Goggles” will last more than two or three essays/writings/posts.

Welcome back.
