A Coffee and Some Randomness Friday

But I’ve decided to forego that idea and the reason is quite simple: I don’t want to give it any more space or time in my soul. In fact, the last time it popped up during a repeat viewing of “The Big Bang Theory”, I turned off the TV. So yay for progress! (Why I didn’t do that after seeing it the first time . . .)

But there is a movie trailer that I will happily watch again for a film titled Still Mine. Starring James Cromwell and Geneviève Bujold, it tells the story (based on actual events) of a man who decides to build a new home on his property for he and his wife. (Sadly, she is in the early stages of dementia.) The only problem is the bureaucratic green light was not given for this DIY project. Check out the trailer below – it looks to be a beautiful film (and it was filmed in Canada, natch!):

As I mentioned on Wednesday, Seabird’s new album Troubled Days has been receiving almost exclusive play on my iPod, and I’ve found the title track catching my attention each time it begins thanks to the bouncing piano-driven melody. Take a listen if you have two minutes and 47 seconds. You might like it:

I’ve also been participating in Jon Acuff’s Start Experiment (under #StartExp on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) that got underway on Monday. It’s not even a week in and already I find myself having to daily kick some sand in the face of the fears related to my 24-day task -- to have an outline/plan for The Secret Lives of Baristas so I can get down to the business of writing a full first draft.

Because you know what? I’m growing tired of talking or thinking about doing things and then letting my fears/doubts/laziness keep me from actually doing something. I don’t want to waste what all and whatever I have been given. So here’s to punching fear in the face!

I hope you do some fear-punching in the days ahead as well. :-)
