Note No. 63
April 13, 2010
I’m not happy about this. It’s basically the very idea that I was going to do later this year.
I know. I was being all cagey about it. But the plan was: I would try to visit as many of my Facebook friends as I could in a year, and I would write about it on a blog. Now this Rosa chick is going to do it first and I am not happy. Not happy at all.
My Zen calendar reading today tells me to pour new wine into new wineskins. I am sure I am supposed to take something from that. It is probably supposed to convince me that I should do the trip anyhow, because I can make it my own and because Rosa’s trip might fall through and be a miserable failure—not that I am wishing that on her.
Or maybe it is saying that I should do something completely different from what I was going to do. Maybe I am supposed to forget the whole road trip notion. New wine. New wineskins.
I just don’t know. I think this might also be about when I am supposed to be remembering my man Mr. Covey and his abundance mentality. That is: there is enough for everybody (so the chill the flip out).
That concept seems a little far away at the moment, though, because I am still trying to get past that childish one about how I hate that it looks like I am copying someone else. I don’t care what they say about imitation being the sincerest form of flattery. I was not trying to flatter anyone last fall when I came up with the concept for the project.
So, now what?
