Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
It has been a long time since I have blogged.
A long time for me is a couple of days and it has been weeks. Over the past year, it is been inconsistent.
In no particular order, this is what I have done since my last post; I purchased a chainsaw and cut over a cord of wood, harvested raspberries and grapes, aquired a forklift fork to use as an anvil, school started for my kids, I dabbled in livestreaming, a man I grew up with was shot and killed and I attended his funeral, I bartered giant pumkins to get cool things, a man dropped bees off in my yard, and I am scheduling big things at the prison like a full production musical and a magic show.
I am slowly writing fiction stories, but they are at times self-fulfilling and that kinda scares me. That is what happens when you loosely write real-life occurrences.
It is my intention to resume this outlet and type away with my thumbs on the phone. That might mean getting up even earlier.
Admittedly I became distracted by the Nextdoor Application on the phone. Some folks call it Facebook Lite, and that turns me off about it. I am not into that scene.
Nextdoor worked much like Craigslist for me in aquiring neat things for Willow Manor and The Campfire, and because it is local, I have met a lot of cool people.
However, my heart isn’t into Nexdoor. Many times, it is slimy. Yesterday, I had a man call me and demand that I help him in his yard for free. It was hard not to introduce him to a lesson in manners and sense that he must have lost somewhere along the way.
I do not need drama like that in my life, but aquiring resources has been cool.
Well, that is all for now. I look forward to spinning tales of fiction and real-life pretty soon here!
