Writeing

JOE: Good morning Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good morning Joe. I missed you yesterday.
JOE: Alas I had no energy left by the time I completed everything yesterday.
CALLIOPE: Did you finish all your projects?
JOE: Yes. My column/ newsletter went out as planned. I will share it with you on Monday.
CALLIOPE: What about the other projects.
JOE: You saw the book review on Monday. Yesterday I finished my article on Crime Victims and Spirituality.
CALLIOPE: Sounds like a challenge.
JOE: Indeed it was. The hardest part was condensing it into 500 words. I kept wanting to explain more but realized there wasn’t room.
CALLIOPE: At least you finished it. When will I see it?
JOE: I’d be glad to post it here for you. However contractually, I have to wait until it is published in the newspaper. First serial rights, you know. See you Monday.

 (Peter and the Biplane)

JOE: Good morning Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good morning Joe. What news?
JOE: Well, I finally wrestled Dreamweaver into submission or maybe just learned enough of the basics to use it.
CALLIOPE: Don't tell me you got your website up and functioning.
JOE: Sort of. At the same time I am revising my site, I am also switching servers.
CALLIOPE: So what's the bottom line?
JOE: Right now I can see my site listed on the Internet but nobody else can.
CALLIOPE: How long will that go on?
JOE: A day or two before it is officially available to the public.
CALLIOPE: That's a milestone. Were you pleased with the results.
JOE: It's not elegant yet but the basics are there. Now I can work on my other site and some refinements.
CALLIOPE: Such as?
JOE: An online store for my books, posting my blog from my own site and some video focused on various topics.
CALLIOPE: Sounds like you will be busy for a while.
JOE: I will. But at least I won't be bored. Talk with you tomorrow.

(Stoking the Fire)

JOE: Good morning Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good morning Joe. I hope you are feeling better today.
JOE: I am. Thank you.
CALLIOPE: Any developments over the weekend?
JOE: I felt well enough to attend the Jersey Boys concert yesterday.
CALLIOPE: Sounds like fun.
JOE: That's what I thought. I went to relax and be entertained.
CALLIOPE: And?
JOE: I also had a chance to think about life and its vicissitudes.
CALLIOPE: How so?
JOE: The show traced the development of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons from their struggle for survival in a rough New Jersey neighborhood through their struggles on the way to fame and fortune.
CALLIOPE: They finally made it?
JOE: Yes, but even their success brought them further challenges. It reminded me that to be successful, I can never give up and in success more challenges await.
CALLIOPE: Interesting findings from a show.
JOE: I thought so and was happy to have the reminders. Talk with you tomorrow.
