Recently, I have been largely silent on social media, but not idle. For many weeks I have been designing and implementing a new website. This is the third time that I have undertaken this foreign task. My first effort, over 15 years ago, was little better than a few pages of “stick figures”. My second served me well for the last 10 years, but it was time to make a change that more accurately reflects the shift in our focus, post retirement. This new site will be my venue and “voice” both on and off the road, while Facebook will remain my primary outlet for displaying pictures to my FB friends.

The site is not yet in perfect harmony with my expectations, however it is better than 90% the way there. I have purchased a “real camera” that I hope to make extensive use of. I have not yet worked on posting images with my “Thoughts” site, but there will be time to work out those bugs so that a few select images may occasionally appear with my “Thoughts”.

Your encouragements have provided me with the motivation to dedicate hundreds (literally!) of hours into working on this. I hope that it serves Christine and me, and thus all of you as well. I invite you to use the tool that I have included on the site to sign up for email notices of future posts.

-Peace! Pete

    • Diane, there is kind of a story that responds to your question. I was a pretty unmotivated student, allowing basic ability to disguise itself as effort. On top of this I am seriously spelling challenged. One English teacher (who shall go unnamed) encouraged me to forego college in favor of the trades. Evelyn Evans encouraged me with overt praise for my writing, if not my ambition. Her words mattered.

    I think that….ambition vs limitations and how far you have come would make a great topic to write about. You are a gifted thinker and writer.
