After a week to dwell on it

and surf the web, and read an old favorite book again, and talk more with Mike and Marty, and spend part of each day skimming job openings ...

I come back around to what I knew at the beginning. That I'm happiest when I'm taking on projects I believe in, and seeing them take shape in reality. I want to be part of something where I can point at it and say "I'm doing that" or "I made that thing" or even "this thing happened because of me".

I have dozens of ideas, some crazy, some with potential, swirling around in my head at all times. But ideas in my head can't become reality. It's going to take writing the words, making the connections, maybe pouring the bricks.

So, first up on the hit parade: teach myself to produce output. And I may as well do it here on LiveJournal, where I already have a paid-for place to post. Down the line I will need to set up a dedicated page, but I'll plan to have echoes here as well.

Happy out-putting!

I think of bricks as something you "fire," but perhaps these are concrete bricks. But you are making connections too, which doesn't sound like concrete bricks or regular bricks. Lego! Maybe these are Lego bricks, and you are pouring liquid plastic into an injection mold!

Or it could be an autocorrect typo for "pounding the bricks." This did not occur to me until after I had written the previous paragraph.

Which is it, pouring or pounding?
