S2 E46 — Whimsy Passion Project or Epic Novel of Adventure?

What were you doing this time last year?  Do you remember? I discovered nuggets from a little over a year ago — Tau Bits — which unlock mysterious inspirations.

The Tau of Steves: What You Don’t Know Could Fill a Book

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): Creativity will be abundant.  You’ll tap into it as you choose because you know the route.  A relaxed state is good but not necessary.”Aries

Hi and welcome to Friday’s Episode 46 in Season 2 of  “My Pandemic Year Experiment” on this 15th day of May in the spring of 2020. 

 Season 1 and 2 are a two-year examination of how bits of wisdom changed during the “normal” pre-pandemic and then in this unfolding pandemic year.

Living life as an art form in a natural experiment, yeah that’s  the name of the game.  But given the unfolding events and how unexpectedly huge the challenge is, will this turn into a real epic novel of a venture instead of a just whimsy passion project?  

More importantly, what’s this about the warning for expectations not met?  

And is this supposed to be some kind of warning — a snapback to a reminder that my target audience is just 3—5% of the US population who are introverts just like me?

4/19/19 Scorpio: “This is the moment for playing around, which is different that standing sill. Experimentation will show you the way.”

4/14/19 Scorpios: “What you thought would be a quick project is turning into a real epic novel of a venture. Still, this is doable.”

4/11/19 Scorpio: “Even if the project doesn’t work out as expected or the outcome is less than you were going for, the journey that brings people together is always worthwhile.”

4/7/19 Scorpio: “What you’re doing and how you’re thinking aren’t for everyone. You’ll win people by losing people.”


“3”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Many make the mistake of assuming they are already so fascinating, talented, worthy, etc., that they don’t need to make an effort.  Set yourself apart by thinking ahead and doing more.” Scorpio

Nah, my mother always told me I was talented and worthy and just a late bloomer.  Mother knows best, y’all! 

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Today’s Holiday Birthday:  

You’ll commit to a process and be transformed by it — not all at once but in small ways throughout the year.  You’ll be paid to do something you would have done for free anyway — wondrous! You’ll get out from under an obligation in August.  You’ll bring loads of attention to the change you want to make in the world.

Okay, then let’s check back in 90 days, eh?

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): Creativity will be abundant.  You’ll tap into it as you choose because you know the route.  A relaxed state is good but not necessary.”Aries

Road trip!  Oh, wait.  I live in a pretty relaxed state and prefer that to one filled with confusion, fear, uncertainty and doubt — FUD.

“5”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69; Stephen Colbert, 56: Commit to getting a job done, and follow your instincts.  Those two actions will carry you to solutions and new highs of inspiration.  Taurus

Instincts are good, except mine don’t necessarily lead to getting a job completed.  But I drive new inspirational highs.

“4”  Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: You’ll be creatively inspired by tried-and-true methods.  Follow the impulse to build on tradition and carry it into the future.”  Leo

I’m hoping what you mean is to follow my nose (where my intuition lies) and continue this burden of citing evidence in some sort of evolving format like this.

“5”  Steve Aoki, 41: Relationships are collaborative, creative efforts.  Whom you get into a relationship with makes a huge difference.  Sagittarius

Who else than my partner and love of my life, Emma the Baroness?

“4”  Steve Harvey, 62:Your feelings often tip you off to things you can’t rationally explain but can also lie with abandon.  Question them as you would any other non evidentiary opinion.” Capricorn

Is this a convoluted way of saying feelings feel and liars lie and just follow the money trail while turning up data and witnesses?

What’s Going On

Literally Bottled and Set Adrift from KnowWhere Atoll 

    • @knowlabs followers of one or more of my 35 digital magazines grew from 2300 to 2663.




    • Just picked up “Bob Dylan In America” by Sean Wilentz.  Maybe because of the subliminal messaging like the times are a changing and the answer is blowing in the wind, but I kinda like Sean’s fanboy becomes music critic becomes historian surrounding Dylan’s life and times. 
    • Saw the movie, didn’t realize that one of my favorite authors, Michael Connelly — his detective Hieronymus (Harry) Bosch book series and Amazon Prime series — also wrote, “The Lincoln Lawyer” which I just finished. Gotta tell you I can’t not see his lead character (Mickey Haller, Bosch’s half brother) as anyone else but Matthew McConaughey.
