Seven or eight years ago, I was generating a new post here almost every day. How times change! The most recent one went up on September 5th, eleven days ago. Clearly, I’m running out of steam.
And there’s something else.
Compared to eight or ten years ago, it’s been taking me a lot longer to come up with copy of acceptable quality for one of these posts. More and more I’ve had to work at finding just the right word or phrase to finish a sentence or complete a thought. It’s been frustrating, as you can imagine.
Of course I have complained about it to my doctor. “There’s nothing wrong with you,” he said, “that being 60 again wouldn’t fix.” Well, hell … I already knew that! His intent, of course, was to help me bring things into focus.
I’m not sure how often I’ll be posting here in the months ahead. I guess it will depend on whether or not I have something worth saying and if I can get it written and posted without spending hours endlessly fussing with it. Please do check back every so often.
In the meantime, it’s clear to me that through this insignificant little blog, more than a few of us have become friends. And for that I am forever grateful.
