Olio: Living in Dog Time
A short update
Hello everyone! It’s been a few weeks since I communicated with you all directly. At that time, over the Christmas holiday, I took on full mastery duties with our puppy/dog Aurelius. Raising a dog capable of being a service dog is no lightweight goal, but I have invested hours in classes with 815 local dog whisperer Ben Austin and I’ve seen enough success that I believe Aurelius will be an invaluable companion to me in my private battles with CPTSD. In this way, along with my work in Rockford and my family, his care has risen to the level of a primary life goal.
Through this transition, my goal has been to keep the content coming here at RevFisk Enterprises. Formerly having the freedom to write every day, my new dog-walking timeline demands a kind of discipline that I am exploring like an amateur. But smart noting itself has been epicentral, and I am happy with the path. There is plenty of content in Earth to keep rolling out new chapter bits without much more need than to build a gadgeteer. (On that level, any volunteer out there want to take up this task for me? Contact me if you’d like to help.) And Talk Them Into It (Again) remains a viable goal. Beyond, there’s more where that all came from.
So, my goal is to not relent on this newly claimed corner of the beast’s underbelly, but to press ahead writing because I desire to do so, Deo Volente! But this will come as it comes, or rather, as it is given, with the seasons, under God’s direction, as he wills it.
Under his reign, as Jesus Christ lives, I am on the road at the CUFW “Dead of Winter” Symposia this week. I am not bringing the laptop (because if I did I would dread opening it, then end up not opening it, and then just have dragged it around for nothing but the drudgery of it.)
I am looking forward to this reprieve, a few days retreat from the demands of Babylon, praying with the brothers in high chorus and, Deo Volunte, dwelling on the higher things of God. If you are there, seek me out and say, “Hello!” I am always thrilled to meet a reader. It is an honor every time.
