Of Life. . .
My January 2022 AR Challenge Entry
It’s nice to see this challenge get off to a strong start as I have already read some creative entries. The arrival of another new year seems to have sparked much enthusiasm from our membership.
When I read the announcement post by Gary Frimann, CRS, GRI, SRES for this month’s event which he is co-hosting with Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist, I was intrigued by the book he mentioned: 100 Things We Have Lost To The Internet by Pamela Paul. I quickly turned my initial interest into a bit of a Googling Exercise (I guess that counts as part of an improved fitness program for this year, right?). My local library had a copy I could check out but there were already two reservations ahead of me. While I assumed that the book might not be available to read and write a post before the challenge’s end-of-month due date, my mind continued to wander in and around the Internet.
"Online" is certainly a location that has become the “Go To” place for all sorts of things. Not only real estate but so much other stuff in life - "being" (and well-being) - comings and goings plus all sorts of things related to each of those on the list. Let's face it, an Internet visit is somewhat like a free-for-all experience at times.
Kathleen continued to create idea-inventing instances for me in her post on January 1. While reading it, my comment there turned into this post. I understand that's how my mind works at times and that may also be evidence of how the Internet operates in our lives.
In my comment on her post I asked, “Why is the theme song from the decades-old The Facts of Life” television show coming back to me? Take the good, take the bad. . . – isn’t that what we can expect? It's about adjustment and adaptation in all aspects. With (and without) any interactions with the Internet. In lyrics and in life.
