We all have busy lives and sometimes we just can’t make it to the keyboards.  Or maybe we’re working on multiple writing projects, and we just don’t have any that are completed and polished and ready to post on the blog.  That’s my excuse 🙂

But I’ve read that we should post something at least a couple of times a week because our readers have expectations.  Ok, that’s fair.  In order to meet that demand, though, I thought I would share someone else’s beautiful writing.  It’s good stuff.  Really.

So, I’ll kick off that posting by creating a new section in my blog called “Other Authors.”

My intent is not to use this space too often, but then again, there are those favorite passages that we would like to see bring a smile to another’s face.  That twinkle in their eye.  That rush of joy in their hearts.

It provides inspiration to us all to read good writing.  It also serves as an exercise.  We learn how to write better simply buy seeing how it should be done.

I’ll start off with an excerpt from the book “Orbiting the Giant Hairball: A Corporate Fool’s Guide to Surviving with Grace” that was written by Gordon MacKenzie.  It’s the last chapter of the book and it was titled: “Paint Me A Masterpiece.”  A good lesson for life.

Enjoy this piece while there is a short intermission from my own words.
