Some of you may wonder why I’m still making the effort to post every day, when faced with the truth (as told by that little calendar up there) that I’m a proverbial day late and dollar short. Well, although I may have failed the letter of the challenge and allowed twenty-five hours to elapse between posts, I feel like I’ve still upheld the spirit of the challenge by posting anyway.
Yes, I know that is like running one stop sign and promising to stop twice at the next one. After the buzzer sounds, it doesn’t matter if the ball goes through the hoop. But do the other runners in the race stop where they are when the first one breaks the tape? No, they don’t.
I’m not going to stop, either, because right now, that feels too much like quitting. Perhaps later this month, I will reach the point in which I’m ready to admit that I have no desire to participate further. When I reach that point, I will be satisfied to quit.
On the other hand, I will cheerfully admit that I may be taking this all just a bit too seriously.After all, they say "it’s not whether you win or lose, but how you play." If playing to win requires writing post after post wherein I complain that it’s 11:57 and that I don’t have anything to post about, then I don’t want to win.
