Food for Thought – An Inspiration for the Day

As ones life takes it turns, milestones reached, new adventures begin, and a new day comes around, the time for reflection, impending future trepidation and excitement reached. The time has come for the next big step, is it going to have success?

Having now reached a turning point, I think back upon the past, have I gained from recent experiences, writing, reading, the achievements, did I leave a bit of me behind, an inspiration to someone else? When life is passing, and a risk been taken, the time for reality finally reached. The questions about the future up-most in one's mind, will the predictions of success be met? An experience, idea, a tried and tested package converted into a computer program for sale, a financial expenditure so late in one's life that could result in total ruin. Encouraged by others to continue “nothing like it in the world” the experts tell me, bode good for the future.

An early retirement, a semi retirement I convinced myself, a return to market the program, the future occupation of my life. Whilst waiting for the experts to encode this, with plenty of time on my hands, the writing of articles has kept me busy, as well as being an education. It started as a “pass the time” exercise, a way of learning from expert authors, an educational calisthenics if you like. But how it grew to more, so much more. The expert undertakings of some authors, humour, life experiences, thought-provoking, heart-break, salesmanship, politics, women's make-up, health, fitness, exercise, fishing, golfing, travel, I've read it all.

This experience, education, entertainment, is an inspiration felt everyday, the expounding of others giving ideas for future writings. Is this how you read the articles? Have I seen more than you? Will you miss it like I'm going to when other needs need you to slow down?

I found myself coming in to the group a verbose expounder of words, I find myself now moving on, one that can say so much, in so few words. Is this beneficial to me? Oh you don't know how, a manual of explanation, a “how to” document needing writing, something that of necessity be short, concise, to the point and not be tedious reading. From whom have I received this pedagogy? You the authors of the articles I read. An inspiration!

Now for the “food for thought”, the “inspiration for the day” read not only the article, study the style of the author, look at the sentence construction and learn the words that they use. This is the future for your development as an author as this is how I've improved.

I leave with a slight feeling of trepidation, not knowing what the future holds, yet the feeling of excitement of future exploration strong within my heart. The hope that I've inspired just one person with my writing, the achieving expert status in five categories, with a hundred and sixty-five articles written in three and a half months, has become an addiction hard to leave.

This is not a goodbye, adieu, or farewell, but rather a “will see you when I can” article. It will be impossible for me to continue with exuberance, which I have in the past enjoyed, work now calls loudly and demands my attention. I will write articles when I can and save your articles to read, allowing a belated comment to your articles, which I know I will continue to enjoy and look forward to.

Thanks Shawn, been and gone and returned again, but got a lot done in a short time, but will be popping on and off, hate people to think one is just ignoring them.

I have enjoyed reading your articles. Like you, I am taking a break from writing articles. I am going to write for fun and education rather than for selling products and services. As a result, I will be blogging more than writing articles. I don't know whether I will write separate articles for Street Articles again in the near future.

I am going to continue on here when I have the time, my Blog is still going on full time but it just is not as time consuming as SA. I love this forum and when I can I will, I have never used it for selling just fun and that it has been.

Thanks Cynthia, already pumping out words at a stink speed, so far so good, also testing part of the program that is beyond what I had expected, they have really done a great job so far, I'm looking towards the horizon hoping to see the ship coming.

Rob, best of luck with your venture, sounds very promising. Whenever I get en email notification about a new SA article, it gives me the title but not the author, so I always try to guess who the author is before I go to the article, I've always been able to tell when you have published a new article from your wonderful titles. I must say reading through all these comments if one didn't know better, they might think someone died, but I know that is just how much everyone is going to miss the daily interaction with you, but now just think how great it will be when you do pop back in from time to time, like anticipating the snow to fall on Christmas morn. It goes with out saying that you have, are and will continue to be a grand asset to all whose lives you touch and have touched with your wonderful writing. In the words of the late great Bob Hope......"Thanks for the Memories" (past, present, and future)

Thanks Johnney I am actually speechless, I appreciate everyone of your sentiments written, as I've said below, don't write me off It will only be a short sabbatical I hope, so that I can return to my addiction. I'm like a bad smell Johnney, very difficult to get rid of.

Thanks C4rmen, I will be around just not so often, the finances of life demand my attention, I wish it was unnecessary as I have enjoyed the last three and a half months.

Hey Rob, wait! Where are you going? I just got here! What about our little "take the bait" game? Don't stay away for too long... we will miss you. At least every now and then a few words, to keep in touch. Well, good luck with whatever you do from now on and thank you for the inspiration. you were one of the people who made me want to write and start with SA. See you around :-)

I'll still be around, just not so often, will be reading and gaining ammo for the next baiting session. Keep writing Maria, I've enjoyed your articles from day one and will continue to read and comment between bouts of working. I managed to pump out 5500 words yesterday that all made sense to the experts to whom I'm now responsible to, explaining their computer knowledge.
