Better every day blog, day 3

Last Update: September 20, 2021

Don't follow your Passion, Lead It.

Good morning everyone. Here I be on day four of my new self challenge of blogging every day. Today I am trying this on my Tablet, and yesterday at church I took photos with this tablet of my work. The LED Video wall I have been setting up and taking down every Sunday now for the last 15 weeks.



One friend said I got lucky getting this gig, maybe however I consider luck this way, being prepared when opportunity shows up, or, as it was for me, being willing. Last year I was working hard trying to stay away from Video wall. However, they are becoming more and more popular, the days of projection screens are fading away. I was helping my old room-mate with this gig, then I got a call and this became my gig. I have been sent to Moab Utah to do a LED wall, and even set them up for parties in back yards.

There is my little work station, some times called front of house. 2 puters and gear in the rack to make the LED wall work, and move from one puter to the other. I have my choice of the live feed to put on the wall, or I can use the images in the other puter to put on the wall. Fun for us ADD types, and I love setting up my options for different moods and such. It is a lot of fun, and a lot of work. There are 32 panels in there to make one screen with two different cables per panel to get the whole thing to talk to each other and get them power. Four rows of 8 panels to set up and take down every Sunday.

So, This is another new practice blog that I am trying out on just my WA community learning how to get this writing part of things mastered. Today I used my Tablet, was a bit challenging getting the pics in here for the lay out is different from on my laptop, however the same tools are still here to be used just as they are on my laptop. Now when I see someone on live chat asking about if they have to have a puter to work in here, I know the answer for I have made it work without one. WA Rocks. And now for an update on the pic that failed me yesterday.

Okay, my bad, that pic is not in my file here at WA and I am not on my phone where to pic lives, so here is a fun pic of the King of the Hammers event I work every year at the beginning of February. Did someone ask for big tires, well there you go. Big ol sand tossing tires. That rig was awesome!!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with your writing skills Scott, and as for your technical capabilities! I wish I possessed just a fraction of them!

That looks like a seriously fun machine you have there on the back of the trailer, I wouldn't mind taking him for a spin through the desert!

Take care my friend!

Ya, it was totally a fun machine to play in, I got to watch. and listen. When she fired up, music to my ears. However, CanAm, honda, Kawasaki, yamaha, had test drive booths, so I rode my quad over to them and text drove all the brands. The Kawi guys got there first so they had open desert to play in, I was dirrectly behind the lead side by side my CHP buddy was #9 in the line. he came back with gritty teeth. We got to blast across the open desert in the kawi, up some rocky hills play in a few sand dunes. then blast back. Plus all the racing I get to watch as I get paid to be there. Win win.

I have enough pics to help me create subjects to write about, that helps. And just forcing myself to do it and make it a must to routine is my end aim.

Hey Cali.

There shouldn't be any forcing here.

You don't need to force yourself.

Stay relax.

Just write naturally.

There's no pushing.

No competition.

No Nothing!

Just be yourself.

You're The Chosen Ones!

Congratulations!

I am not looking at it as forcing myself, I just have the tendicy to find stupid little things that need to get done and not the goal stuf. I can wash my dishes after dinner, So it is the habit part that I am creating, the writing part is easy for me. I started journaling about 2 years ago, and I keep a daily journal of my work and personal doings to help me keep track of what I am doing every day. So, true, I am force a new habit on myself so to speak, however it will simply just become part of my routine I do daily. And getting over the learning curve of how to work inside of here. In four days on 3 different devices was challange A. Challage B was getting the photos in. Now, in four days it has already become something that is not so difficult. It has it's way so to speak, its flow, and I am getting closer to where I am working it, not it working me. Flow.

Love you take on what I am achieving, and your input. I can feel your flow, energy, its awesome.

Thanks.

And this is black gospel music, Gosh it is amazing!! The Keyboard player has a perfect voice, he sounds wonderful. And the shy lady at the far left, when they have her lead a song, angel. It is wonderful getting to do what I get to do. I have been very blessed in my life, even with that crazy part of it.. Lol

I was a metal head for ever, well there was that diso stage, but that was only becuase that is what the girls like to dance to, and what better way to get close to a pretty girl than to dance with her. hehehe. Anyway at church back in 2007, I just started going. Long hair, ear rings, never did the tato thing. The praise and worship minister, JJ, he is a pastor now, asked me if I would help out on the sound board. Been addicted ever since. And that lead to working with many different musicians, music styles, I even love Classical now. Seeing that in person, heaven on earth to me.

That leads up to were I am today, and now I love Gospel music, however when I listen to the Petersons on YouTube, that old school back woods country gospel calls to me.

5 years ago, I was running a little resort for the summer, went up there to fix some plumbing, ended being me adn running that place. I 4x4 my camper trailer up a trail and stayed there instead of at the resort. To many drunks there, needed the peace. And it hit me, outdoor country church. And hearing the Petersons, calling me again.

Yesterday was my last day there until I come back in Feburary, Pastor put me up on stage, I am the only white person there, it is amazing how far we have come over the years, so much love was pored out on me. I got hugs from so many there yesterday. Hard not to tear up.... Family is family, and it does not need to be blood. I have been adopted.
