September 18


How about this one?  Here I am writing my first scoop of the day.  I feel I have not written in my diary for days although it is not exactly true.  I have been writing – not as much as I would like to an have done so in the past.  I am busier now—a—days.  It works for me.  The past several months, beginning January 2017, has had its ups and downs, but I am still here as often as I can.  In fact, I have not had any reason to write in my diary as much as I have done so in the past as well as be online every day.  I have been enjoying reading and TV time once again.  I rarely watch regular TV anymore as I no longer have the cable box, but I do have the cable app on my ROKU system along with Hulu, Pandora, 3ABN, and a couple of free movie apps.  I have been binge watching CSI: Criminal Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, Castle Rock, and other TV shows lately.  Now that Dr. Phil has resumed a new season of his show, I am doing my best at watching the daily program at 4 PM CST if my cable app does not have any issues, but yesterday and today, my cable app is having issues.

Prologue or Just Another Entry?

Prologue or Just Another Entry?


Okay, someone/anyone who reads my readable diaries at DD1 and DD2, may find me a little bit odd or wondering why I am writing a prologue so late in the game and for a diary.  Well, it has come to the realization of my own life that I am doing this to protect myself and others who are in my life today, tomorrow, and in the past.  What I write and share in my diaries (that are readable) are my own thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and they are only one-sided or told only by me.  I do not mention names in my diary – initials only to protect those I write about and permission to use names is necessary when it comes to writing a book or story about them.  It is just common curtesy to ask for permission for using a person in a story.  Writing initials in a diary pleases me just fine as well.

Why am I writing a “prologue’ now?  I am just asking others to respect my diary and entries and be aware that I did not create a diary for my entries of thoughts, feelings, and experiences to be abused or used by others in any way.  My entries will be considered copyrighted from this day forward.  Also, I read other DD writer’s diaries as well and respect their writings of thoughts, feelings, and experiences.  I want the same respect, and in the past, I have come across some real doozy comments come from people who are not even members of DD.  Spam messages is what I have come across as a member of DD ever since I began writing in an online diary and today I am happy to say that has finally quieted down for me.

I consider a prologue while others may call this another entry.  I can see it both ways.  I observe all the time and feel like I am always sitting on a fence seeing both sides of everything around me when it comes to that point in my own life.  Being an observer is a job that can have its ups and downs.  Knowing what to do at times is the tough part of being an observer, and in the past to present day, I have had my share of observation ups and downs.  Some days I just want to scream, cry, and sleep it off while other days I want to dive into what I am doing with gusto and have at it.

I will have a copyright symbol on all my entries from now on.  Please respect my wishes.
