On a Journey

As I sit here on my couch in an apartment I've lived in for years, full of clutter and family and wholly lived in, I think about the journey I have been on, and the direction I want to go in. Every day is like a tiny step. You can only do so much every day. But let it count for something. Take some time to do something you like. Learn something new every day. Fix a thing. Help someone. Be humble. Create.

I'm now 50 years old, but I feel like I'm only getting started. I'm good at some things like HTML, CSS, JS, ( learning SVG ) and I want to learn more about things like Godot Engine, Svelte, WebAssembly, and more.

Ultimately, though, it's about wanting to create. I've learned a lot via Observable and I think I've learned that a Journey should not be taken alone.

When I got married, I thought I knew everything, and my life would just be a continuation of the past, just with another person. I had no idea that my whole life would be changed in ways I could not understand at the time.

Now, I'm married, got 3 kids, working on books, games, coding, and wondering “what's next”? This pandemic has changed the world, and myself as well. It's refocused me on making every day count. And not letting depression steal another moment of time.

Time to do stuff! Have fun! Make things!

This is my first blog post that is a “day 2”. I am hoping for a “week” streak at least. Writing in the mornings is my goal. The topic is not set yet. Getting words on a page is the priority.

See you tomorrow!
