Year 15

Pixar’s Inside Out lead character, Joy. Also, our favorite flower, the common daisy.

Year 15.

Quietly making noise.

Quietly making noise for 14 consecutive years. The quiet continues today into uncharted territory, year 15.

Quietly making noise is a Jimmy Buffett song.

Quietly making noise is the long way.

Writer’s flood is to blame for all of this.

If i die tomorrow another 2/3 of a year will pass before five daily, differently-themed blog posts stops.

April Fools Day Eve, 2023

13-second video: Walt Disney World’s 43-square miles was once officially called EPCOT by Walt Disney. Only after Walt’s 1966 death did we rename EPCOT to Walt Disney World.

i do not know why i write every day. i only know i enjoy it and can’t help myself.


Walt was crazy to think his alligator, snake, and mosquito-infested Central Florida swampland could be transformed into the Vacation Capital of the World.

Yet here we are.

WordPress 5.9 Josephine

Older WordPress headers screen shot
You wake up one day and realize how the place has dramatically changed. These are old WordPress website headers.

WordPress 5.9 Josephine auto installed yesterday.

WordPress (WP) continues to improve slowly and steadily. Over time, however, the contrast from a decade ago to now is extraordinary. So grateful to learn it one iteration at a time.

i trust WP.

WP changed my life.

Today is the 4,837 consecutive day writing five daily, differently-themed blog posts.

That’s 24,180 blog posts.

The official world record by a single author is 17, 212.

No one cares about a blogging world record.

i write, not because i need to, but because i want to. It’s a daily, involuntary reflex. One that someday may disappear.

Meanwhile, here’s a trip down memory lane…the colored WP website headers are as follows:

  1. Mind – grey matter
  2. Body – brown is between the darkest and lightest skin
  3. Spirit – everyone bleeds red
  4. Work – US dollar bill green
  5. Home – Dark blue is fav color

Working diligently to decide the future of my workload.

40 Disney Years

Disney Cast Years of Service trophies
Disney Cast Years of Service trophies. Randomly took photo today for this post.

Milestones are an important way to solidify relationships.

Neanderthals likely celebrated (or dreaded) the sun’s rising as a sign they made it through the night without getting eaten.

Neanderthals likely (as if i have any clue) also celebrated the sunset because it meant they survived another day without getting eaten.

The paradox of this is they also likely feared the sunrise and the sunset. What’s to celebrate when you know the entire day will be spent looking over your shoulder, or sleeping with one eye open and one ear open.

Neanderthals were part of the food chain.

And they were a long way from the top.

Evolution brought breakthroughs like knives made from bones, spear heads made from stones. Over millenia, the smartest and strongest survived.

Modern day neanderthals (that’s us) now have a microscopic T-Rex and Saber-toothed tiger, Covid.

And little ole me is reflecting on the 40-year anniversary of my Disney hire date.
