TRAVEL & ADVENTURES: Writing + Reading
Updated: Aug 13
Oh my goodness me. Have you any idea how difficult it is to talk about yourself? I do. Cos I have to do it constantly.
At first, when I began doing videos for my YouTube channels, I thought it rather strange - speaking to an image of myself in the camera - about basically nothing at all.
Then I began to feel a bit like the frog in the image here.
Laying on the floor without a care in the world saying nonsensical things that meant nothing to anybody. Which was true, because no one was listening, or viewing or commenting...
Then I began to have sensations (much like the dog in the image below). By the way, just to blow my own trumpet, they are drawings by little old me. And I have more to come too!
You see, the thing is, you don't have to have some of ego kick about talking about yourself. You only need a goal. Something to tell someone to teach them something about themselves.
I think that's the general idea of all these video channels anyway.
It's not some kind of voyeristic method of checking in on yourself, you know, seeing how good you might look on the chance that someone else might see how good you look.
Being somewhat of an oldie, and being born at a time when none of this super-duper fastie-speedie-electronic-highway was in existence, then seeing it all mushroom around me like a magical fairy ring, I got to find out how useful all these video and podcast channels can be. Particularly when you're trying to sell something to someone. Like I am today!
"Yay!" I hear you chuckle... not.
In any case, while I have your attention, I'd like to bring it to my book about relationships.
Yes, I know, I have to be ultra damned careful just now. Why? Because relationships (between men and women) are somewhat of a minefield to navigate. What with all these new ways of relating to each other.
And that's a good and a fine thing to be able to explore.
But, just so you know, there are still some old fashioned people around. Those who, like me, want/need/desire to relate to the sex that happens to be, you know, opposite to them.
And that's what my little book is about.
It's about how to understand how a person who does things, thinks things and relates to things - opposite to you. And with this little book in your hand, you can find out how to get the best out of that situation with them.
If you've knocked around a bit (like me), then you might just be having the same kinds of issues I had over the years.
Trying to get the best out of a man while making him think he's God's Gift to Me, wasn't my cup of tea - until I found out how he really felt. And, more importantly, why he felt that way.
Sorry, guys don't feel actually. Or they don't like to admit they do. Do they? But they do think a lot about stuff that you wouldn't ordinarily put in their laps.
Anyway, I digress.
The thing is, I've learned (the hard way) how to get the best out of a man. And now, you know what? I couldn't have life any better.
I am not currently in a relationship, but that's more by choice (my mother would say otherwise). The thing is, after my last relationship ended (amicably, you know without the screaming and throwing fits), I quite like my own independence and I like not having to do stuff like normal people do. I've found I can do anything without having to consult anyone. Yee Ha!
Of course, I may have gotten rather selfish in the process, but that's my lot in life and you have to make the best of what you have.
What I would be very pleased about is, if you were so inclined, is for you to check out this little book, eye up the 'slippery frogs' and 'faithful dogs' and see which ones keep popping into your life...
The key is to compare and contrast. Look at the drawings, read the wise old text below each one and then decide how you want to respond, to get the one you really, really want.
Click on the book to find out more... go on, you know you want to.
All the best,
