It snowed yesterday morning, big fluffy flakes of winter dropped out of the sky.
Today the sun shines, and the roof drips steadily towards spring.
Now that the taxes are out of the way (keeping the fingers crossed on this one), there is time to focus on more interesting obsessions.
A new LCD monitor graces the desktop, and the old monitor sits to its right. Working with two monitors is definitely timesaving. It relieves the need to click back and forth between the windows of several programs when working on a project. This is particularly true for transcription projects.
When purchasing the new monitor, a used video card was added to the cart. The installation of the card was fast and easy. After that, it was a simple matter of plug and play to use the old monitor as an additional viewing area.
There, I have just finished an experiment that removed the "I" from my writing style; and refrained from using the passive voice.
It is an odd exercise, removing the first person from a journal entry. This sort of "unbiased", god/goddess-eye view of the universe reeks of hubris, if I do say so myself.
The use of the passive voice is important in maintaining a balanced presentation of reality, action and consequence are integrally related.
I will leave the "I" in my journal writing, and allow consequences to fall where they may.
