Launches & Closures

Since returning from a month away in Lanzarote, I haven’t stopped! I’ll soon be needing another break at this rate!

I’ve had to reintroduce the Google Task app to my smartphone to allow me to list the jobs that need doing as a priority. Most of them are tasks that need doing around the house and garden. That’s why I love it when it rains! I have an excuse to go in my office and get on with my internet work!

Yesterday (Tuesday, 5th June), I created a brand new section for the website that is titled ‘WHY’. After creating the section, I wrote the introduction page and then shuffled a couple of suitable pages to give it some content. Most of that work took me best part of the day.

When I was in Lanzarote, I planned this section and wrote some notes and research findings ready for the first few entries. The first edition will be released on Monday 10th June and has taken me all of today to write from the notes I’d made. I think it’s a good article, but then I would, wouldn’t I?

I think I’ve cleared a path in my schedule for continuing to bring my other content across from Substack. Honestly, I don’t think I’ll get it all done before the end of the year, as I’d planned. But hey, we can only do what we can do.

After being recommended by my friend Jon, I watched a video on YouTube, from Poole Christian Spiritualist Church with guest speaker David Powell. What a breath of fresh air that podcast was to listen to. Ironically, the topic David talked about was something I’d already been making notes about for covering in the new WHY section. That’s synchronicity for you!

I posted another hint in the Facebook ST community group, suggesting that I will be closing the group page in July. I had hoped a few of the members would take up the challenge and start posting content so I wouldn’t need to close it after four years. But as always, there has been no interest. So, in July, I will finally close that group page and drop my medium profile off the site. 

I really don’t understand why there are so many alleged mediums in today’s community but so few real students. I would have given my right arm for a similar website to this one to have been around when I was learning. I couldn’t even come close to guessing how many hours I’ve put into creating material online for medium students. I feel like a teacher stood in an empty classroom, with the door open, and with hundreds of people passing by in the corridor.

As I write this, the sun is shining outside of this office and I’m feeling a bit guilty for sitting in here when there is so much to be done. I tied the roses up this morning, jet-washed both of our green bins after they were emptied, and swept some debris from the driveway. So that is two jobs off the task list! 

Anyway, I going into the house in a few moments. It’s time for my late afternoon power nap. I’ll return to the office at 10:00 pm and put in another four-hour shift to end the day. 

The most recent article that I published on Monday has so far received just 3 reads. I mean – is it all worth it really?
