Where are you, Wednesday's Wisdom?

For over one year, every Wednesday, here on Blogger, I've published a posting associated with what I call Wednesday's Wisdom. But today, I find myself feeling far from wise about anything.

Therefore, I find myself expressing similar thoughts that lyric lines in a Christmas song from How the Grinch Stole Christmas stateThe lines which I'm referring to ask, "Where are you Christmas? Christmas, Why Can't I Find You??; and, today, I'm asking, Where are you wisdom? Why Can't I Find You?
But all I can come up with is a glaring question mark, and in doing so, I'm reminded of my fifth grade teacher, Mr. Ed Heinz, who put a gigantic question mark on our classroom's bulletin when he couldn't come up with a way to decorate it.

I'm not feeling unwise about decorating anything, as Mr. Heinz did, which is fine, because it's far too early to put bring my array of Halloween themed figurines out of hiding, and, it's also too early to put up pumpkin lights in my rooftop garden.

What I'm feeling a lack of wisdom about has to to do with a step I'm taking re the print version of the book Words In Our Beak Volume One (WIOB V1) which is currently only available via MagCloud.

As I write this post, Chris Deatherage, who is my web-master and book-formatter is working on a format for WIOB V1 which will make it possible to be placed in a publication house (Ingram Spark) who provides distribution services.

Having WIOB V1 with Ingram Spark will supposedly enable me to place it in bookstores, gift shops, libraries, nature centers and schools.

Initially I was quite excited about the possibility of extending WIOB V1's reach, but now I'm less enthused, or to put it more bluntly: I'm no longer as hopeful re WIOB V1's prospects. This may be due to the fact that I seem to have no wisdom on how I will go about getting the word out re the wider availability for the book.

I guess I don't have to know that answer just yet as Chris is still working on reformatting the version.

But this does mean that while he is doing the reformatting, I should be busy at work finishing up volume two, which is very close to being completed! However, these what-will-I-do-when thoughts are interfering with my ability to have any type of clarity (wisdom) on how to proceed, so I'm asking, Where are you wisdom? Why Can't I Find You?


The digital versions of Volume One within the Words In Our Beak book series that are mentioned in this entry may only remain available for a limited time, but hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can now be found wherever books are sold. Please click here to go to my blog post that provides details as to where you can get these books.


Additionally, I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White Collection, Kaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.
