Break Out The Champange!

Seek calm and reflective moments alone, or with someone special.  It is always free, and always valuable!

Today, I launched my website, IAMRetiredNowWOT.org !

Because it is a work in progress, it has not gone public yet.

Deep inside, I smashed the Champange Bottle against the gleaming hull of my mother ship! The tiny voices inside me triumphantly cheered, as roses and tulips floated into the air, and the massive hull of my mothership steadily eased itself into the calming, clear waters of my protected harbor.

Has it been that long?

The yearning to be set free.

…To be free once again to create, to express, to inspire; if not me alone, but many others in this world!

The trade winds are blowing, causing ripples over the open sea.

I am happy!

  2. Hello and Thank you for taking the time to express your kind thoughts. Yes, I believe one day, each of us will find freedom in what we want to do, and “fly on the wings of the wind!” Cheers!!

  3. Thank you for the auspicious writeup. It in truth was once a enjoyment account it.
    Glance complex to more added agreeable from you! However, how
    can we communicate?

  4. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of
    plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of completely
    unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot
    of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.

    Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d truly appreciate it.

  5. Hello, thank you for your thoughtful comments! I am not legal counsel therefore, legally I think you could use conventional devices such as copy rights etc. But thieves will steal regardless. You could spend all of your waking days running after them, but I don’t think it will ever end.

    The thing about creative endeavor is that it takes a lot of time and energy which you, without a doubt expend with every micro-second it takes to fire up your creative power and link and weave it into a work of art. In many ways, it is priceless!

    What then would make you happiest? Knowing that your work of art is viewed by all the people’s of the earth and you hear gasps of happiness and profound discussion that is shared long after the store closes? Would you be flattered that someone stole your creative piece and replicated on another website? We all have a fear of this, and the fear although merited is all relative. What we usually feel bad about, is that we feel they stole a part of us, a part of our creativity that has spirit and soul!

    Because you know, and those who know you, are at awe that you created it! The bottom line: You were born with a gift. A gift shared by many, only separated by your very uniqueness. No one can take that away from you.

    I say then, spend your days and nights inspiring real people unselfishly, and generously. Be proud and happy that your unique gift sprouts life. Do not let negative distractions reduce you into a humanoid of vengeance. You are a person of honor and honesty. Keep company with those of like minds!

    I’m very happy I came across this in my search for
    something concerning this.

  8. Thank you for your critique. Sometimes, I notice that when the Host upgrades the software, some words become “corrupted” or something might appear a bit off. The Host routinely warns the bloggers sometimes this occurs, so need to check. Of course, as life happens I can’t always check each blog post or entry. Likewise, comments from my international friends who probably use online translators may see less than accurate words being translated. So, despite this imperfect world of blogging, i do hope you will continue to enjoy the content and be inspired! Thanks.

    First, thank you and everyone else with like minds for visiting my website and taking the time to comment! If you aspire, you will inspire and so this is a great motivational start! Continue to pursue this! I am not a technical person so WORDPRESS and SITEGROUND (Host) seemed like a good place to start without knowing anything about blog setups. I also chose the “Free Template” which is what I am using (at least when I first started). WORDPRESS also offers a variety of templates for a fee, my advice is that if you have a fondness to a certain web template (and you can afford to fee) pay the fee and build your website/blog around it. A WORDPRESS template is the visual frontage of the “Emerald City of OZ”, and SITEGROUND HOST is the wizard behind the curtain that brings OZ to life!

    Ready made templates are designed so you don’t have to re-invent the wheel. It really frees you to concentrate on what you do best, and aspire to: creative writing!! De-clutter your worries, you don’t have to look too deeply into everything. For me, I prefer simplicity and clarity! Much success in your journey!

  90. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie.

    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Many thanks

  91. I believe what you said made a great deal of sense. However, think about
    this, suppose you were to create a killer post title?
    I am not saying your content is not good., but suppose you added
    something that makes people desire more? I mean Break Out The Champange!
    – IAMRetiredNowWOT! is kinda vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news headlines to get
    viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related
    pic or two to get people interested about
    everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it might make
    your posts a little livelier.

  92. Hey there terrific website! Does running a blog similar to this take a
    great deal of work? I have absolutely no expertise in programming but I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, should you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off subject however I just wanted to ask.
    Many thanks!

  93. Nice weblog right here! Also your website so much up fast!
