I woke up at 11:50pm and still managed to write my daily poem. It took until 11:54 to turn on my computer and log in, but I managed to publish by 11:57. How’s that for skirting the edge of a deadline? Hopefully I get back into the routine of updating in the mornings, but I haven’t been feeling creative in the early hours lately. In all honesty, I don’t really require inspiration, but it certainly helps the quality of my work.

I hope everyone is doing well, and finding time to relax. We all need an occasional break.

Warm regards,

Well, one hundred consecutive days. It’s the first time in this process that I’ve felt a sense of achievement, of reaching some milestone. Despite health issues, injuries, power outages, and my tendency to quit on myself, I’ve managed to be consistent and engaged.

I’d like to extend my thanks to everyone that’s kept up with me thus far. I hope you’re enjoying what little I have to offer, and I look forward to keeping it going as long as I can. To be earnest, I may well switch to every other day once the year is up.

While I’m here, I’ll give an update on my skate brand. Things are coming together piece by piece. I have stock building up and I should be ready to officially launch by the end of the summer, hopefully earlier. It’s a fairly seasonal business in Canada, but I had anticipated the first year being a loss in any case. It’s been a fun project so far, and time well spent, even if I’m not making any money. More updates to come.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

Warm Regards,

J.C – Lloyd

Dueling Principles

Battle scars

Fighting the world

Fighting myself

Adversaries on all sides

Seeking them out

Challenge, conflict, justice served

Motivated by the ignorant

Spurred on by the hurt

I don’t insert myself in other people’s business

But I know what’s right, and I know what isn’t
