One Letter per Week ~ M

Place:  Maine
Emotion: malaise
Adjective: mature
Verb: munch
My animal: moose

During the autumn season in the Northeast region of the United States,
hunters from far away, as well as residents, travel to the state of Maine
in hopes of securing a moose, one allowed per hunter.

A moose is considered to be the largest and heaviest member of the
existing deer family. The top weight listed for a mature adult male is
1,500 lbs. and females weigh in between 440 to 1,100 lbs.

It’s amazing an animal whose diets consists of daily munch, munch on
woody vegetation is known to produce high protein meat.

Whenever I think about slaughtering animals, other than cattle-chickens
and pigs) malaise overcomes me.

Prompt quote: “The desire to work well cannot be fulfilled without hard work.”

~ Dean Koontz

This is a quote I agree with wholeheartedly.

Little in life can be achieved without prior planning, sacrifices of one’s time and
a check and balance attitude.

The only way to be successful in any commitment you undertake is to do your
homework, a task learned way back in school.

Students who received the good grades and high honors were those who put
in the time, ‘did the assignment well’.

Double Take ~ Saturday Mix ~ June 25th

prompts: homophones (real, reel and sale, sail)

Recently I learned ‘how to create’ Instagram reels, a
challenge I first considered fun.

Fakes are everywhere.
I’ve always liked living in the real world and usage of filters
in attempts to keep me youthful didn’t exactly resonate well
with me.

Months ago, I downloaded a free app which allows me to
emit emotions through personal avatars and chosen songs.
On occasion I take advantage of sale items.

I fancy these tech dolls. Sad to admit the only dolls dating
back to my own childhood were paper ones.

Many times, I wish I could sail away to some exotic island
and begin life anew. This crazy notion would require a new
mindset since I’m petrified of water – never learned how to

Today’s prompt:  produce – product

Changing directions is often the anecdote for one’s disturbing issues.

In order to succeed in any creative genre, one has to produce quality


Investing time in restructuring (weighing options, strengths, weaknesses

and strategies) could result in a much better finished product.

Computer Vision Syndrome

Concerned about the impairment of my short sightedness a.k.a. myopia,
I opted to do a bit of research this morn.

May 2022, I visited my optometrist, and he removed my license restriction.
Testing showed I can see quite fine long distance.

Although he didn’t find any reason to increase the prescription for my reading
glasses I’ve taken note of the effects experienced with usage of the computer,
cell phones and Kindle on my tablet.

At times I’ve found it necessary to utilize a magnifying glass to view the words,
especially if they are grayed out or in fine print.

The results of my findings (after bringing up several sites) spoke of continued
direct exposure to the blue light emitted from LED devices and the damage
it can cause to one’s eyes. Ouch!

Although thankful my eyes aren’t suffering from the list of symptoms stated
in that article, I shall take all info read into account and begin to limit time
spent in Blogosphere.

It’s likely, too I shall delete several apps on my phone and replace usage
via Kindle with paid out-of-pocket paperbacks, a preference of mine which
allows me to highlight and ear-mark pages for future reference.

Although technology has proven quite beneficial, eventually we consumers
discover the somewhat tyrannical portions of constant upgrades, updates,
blinking ads, change of formats, complete change of programs, and issues
we didn’t create followed by a request for payment to repair.

I don’t intend to disappear 100% after auto-renewed for another
year. I’ll pop in from time to time to check on those I consider special
virtual friends, the ones with whom I’ve interacted with the past
several years.

Stay safe and enjoy your summer!!
