on a serious note

Making trips…I have been wrestling in my head on how to tell my family about me taking a solo trip to south america. My wife would storm me questions about where, when, and how. I have only vague ideas and no real answers. It seems I am using this excuse for not following through with my plan.

“A journey of a thousand leagues begins with a single step.”
Lao Tzu

I have yet to understand this.

road to recovery

Did some biking this weekend. It was first real biking since I broke my collar bone back in last September. Monday morning everything in my body hurts. I feel old.

According to webmd I should be completely recovered by now. I just don’t think so. Everytime I pullup the handlebar I feel a tiny bubble popping in the shoulder. Very unpleasant sensation. At this rate it might take a full year to get completely well – very unsettling.

My review of wordpress:
It’s hard and harder but I find myself spending hours on it.

I really like the convenience of free tools and web space.
At beginning learning curve was horrible but as I understand the blogging lingos interface is becoming quite intuitive. Still by no means it’s easy.
I have invested many hours and I realized there are so much to learn.

Trying to blog and to learn new program is very difficult. I start out blogging and find myself trying to learn how to look nice enough for others read. By then I have lost what I was going to write.

I guess I need to learn how to use wordpress first then really dig into blogging.

Solo is fine but 2 to 4 people will be better.
