Hi there. This past week has been rather uneventful. No manic episodes. Only a little bit of depression, not like earlier this month. On the positive side there are the home movies that I am editing and the book that I am working on. With the home movies I am taking old VHS tapes and digitzing them and then breaking them up into pieces so I can put the puzzle back in order – we have some tapes that were taped over and now things are out of sequence. So….nothing like watching 6 hours of vhs to find those dead spots and those out of sequence parts. But hey, I am thankful that I now have a program that I can do all the processing with. Cyberlink PowerDirector 14. I bought it through an online store for a pretty good savings compared to the latest versions. I feel like I’ve said this before. Weird.
So, my book…..I am putting together a book of short stories. I recently learned of a program for writers – Scrivener. It is an awesome little program. It basically helps you organize all of the elements of writing. I’m doing the trail right now and expect to purchase the full version next month. Anyway, this writing is difficult. What with my memory loss and cognitive degradation. I am moving forward though. Toughing it out in hopes that something will click one day and I’ll be back to my old self. Big dreams.
I am sitting here waiting for the weather to warm up so I can go outside again. I’ve been cooped up in this room too long – months. It’s driving me to questoin my sanity.
Well, that is about all for today. Good news is good news. And I like not being on a downer. Though I must say, I do enjoy those manic episodes: so much energy.
Here’s a little something to hopefully brighten your day:
What a thrill — I’m standing still and soaring high
—— YOUR KISS
