Fresh Breeze

I usually make very careful decisions. There are things I want to achieve, so I do what I need to do and what I know is good for me. As a consequence, I feel I am drowning in a sea of good sense, reason – and gloom!

There is fun in some of the reasonable things I do. But it’s a stale kind of fun, the sort of fun you have watching your favourite movie yet again and then go on and read the latest book of your favourite series.

Now I make another very reasonable decision. I plan to test the hypothesis, that the world will not come to an end and my life will not turn into a disaster if – once a week – I do something special, just because I want to.

My chosen activity, should be creative or new or challenging or just something I seldom do. If things go well, it should be fun. Most of the time, there’s a risk, it’ll not be fun and then I don’t feel obliged to go through with it. If I have an idea that appeals to me, I’ll only check if it is likely to have any serious negative consequences. For once, I’ll do my best not to ponder usefulness, likelihood of success or other very reasonable concepts.

I plan a series of 52 parts. If all goes well that’s one weekly fresh breeze for a year. Chances are, I will have to skip a week occasionally, so it may be a little over a year. Reports will be posted on Sundays. I believe, that even if all else fails, writing those reports and entertaining you will be fun.

Jackie – Thank you for inspiring me!
