I've got a few methods for dealing with those moments when I get the out-of-office message from my imagination.

First, I use my wife as a sounding board for the situation. This usually oils up the cogs and gets things moving.

If that doesn't work, I try to skip ahead in the story, and work on a future, unrelated chapter.

Finally, if one and two fail, I switch to another story, and I work on it.(less)

It's the direct connection to my favorite pastime: reading. It's what I dreamed about doing, off and on, my entire life.

I would make some jokes about unlimited restroom breaks and not having a boss, but I also have a daytime job. One day though, I hope to make those jokes and mean it.(less)

That’s right, it’s what you’ve all been waiting for …


Another TOP TEN list. Cue the sound effects. Maybe a race car engine. Or the Miami Vice theme.


For whatever reason, this is one of the least difficult Top Ten lists I’ve created, though it would be very difficult to truly “rack and stack” them, or as the Air Force people say … “stratify” … these  delectable morsels of American entertainment.


So...

“Families start out, most of the time, with unconditional acceptance of one another. That acceptance starts in childhood and continues into adulthood. Somewhere in there, between childhood and adulthood, the ability to distinguish right versus wrong is born.”
Bart Hopkins, Texas Jack

“One of the most glorious, yet tragic, things about being human was that, sometimes, you just had to learn things for yourself. Call it a flaw, call it a blessing, call it life. If everyone learned from everyone else’s mistakes, the world would be perfect.”
Bart Hopkins, Like

“With one Like I can say hi to a friend, support them during a crisis, share in a joke, make someone happy, or reinforce a person’s self esteem.  I make myself part of their world.  It’s like I stopped by for coffee.  But, by Liking, I can also avoid talking to all the people I don’t want to waste time on.  Or I can check to see what my ex-girlfriend is doing seven or eight times an hour.  It’s a double-edged mouse click.”
Bart Hopkins, Like

“It was only a smile, nothing more. It didn’t make everything all right. It didn’t make anything all right. Only a smile. A tiny thing. A leaf in the woods, shaking in the wake of a startled bird’s flight. But I’ll take it. With open arms.”
Khaled Hosseini

“Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.”
Joseph Campbell

“A lot of our perception of history is influenced by inaccurate movies.”
Nelson DeMille, Plum Island

“Families start out, most of the time, with unconditional acceptance of one another. That acceptance starts in childhood and continues into adulthood. Somewhere in there, between childhood and adulthood, the ability to distinguish right versus wrong is born.”
Bart Hopkins, Texas Jack

“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”
Ernest Hemingway
