Did you remember to go to work today?

Yes, this is a 3-day weekend because of the Memorial Day holiday on Monday. It signals the beginning of summer. Schools are out for a few weeks unless you’ve just graduated. In that case, you could be quoting Alice Cooper’s lyrics, “School’s out for summer, School’s out forever”.

Anyway, my job requires me to work most weekends for a couple of hours. I work at a local radio station and my job is fairly straightforward. When the on air talent (which I am not) do live broadcasts outside of the radio station, I am one of two people who makes sure the broadcasts are aired at the correct time.

Today was interesting to say the least. I arrived 15 minutes early so that I could go over the times the broadcasts would happen. Well, today the monitor and computer I needed to use both completely shut down. I had to call the IT person, who was 15-20 minutes away and then had to tell the on air talent that he would be missing his first live broadcast of the day. I then get a call from the other on air talent, who is broadcasting from a different location, asking me if the other person who was supposed to be working with him is there at the station. I ended up having to run between the two broadcasts for the first 30 minutes until the station manager arrived to fill in for the “missing” co-worker, who casually strolled in a few minutes after the station manager.

So again, I put forth the question: Did you remember to go to work today?

What is your Dream?

What comes to mind when you see or hear the word “dream”?  I, for one, don’t remember my dreams so it’s like I don’t dream at all.  So, when I saw the this daily prompt word a  couple of days ago, it got me thinking about this word.

Does it describe the brain activity that occurs during sleep?  Or the brief escape to one’s “perfect” place, as in a day dream?

Is a dream the same as a goal, i.e., dream job, dream car, dream vacation, the American Dream, etc.?  If so, does a dream come true once the goal is achieved? Like the lyrics of the song, Dream On, by Aerosmith: “Dream on, dream on, dream on, dream until your dreams come true”.

What is your dream?

First blog post

So here it is, the first blog post. How many of you have read or written this sentence before?  Well, for some unknown reason I have wanted to join the world of bloggers for some time now. But I thought, “what do I have to offer that others might find interesting”?  What will I write about when I’m the one who usually stands back, listens and takes in conversations?  Finally, I decided, why not give blogging a try.

So what am I going to blog about? At this moment I haven’t exactly figured that out. Most likely, I will write about thoughts, ideas or things I observe that have my attention at a specific moment. Hence, the blog name eyetomind. Who knows how or what this blog will develop into, but at least I’m trying something that is out of my comfort zone.

Thanks for taking the time to read this inaugural blog post. Take care and have a great day.
