Before any more emails come in… let me just clarify a few things that got missed in my middle-of-the-night babbling.
1 – I’m not giving up blogging.
Like I said “this was *SUPPOSED* to be my ‘good-bye’ post.”. Just as I told Nico a few weeks back, that my post about opinions was originally meant to be my last one, but I ended up omitting some of the stuff I wrote below.
2 – There are those who believe (sneering suspiciously at two unnamed people in particular.) That I am *incapable* of staying out of blogland (or, for that matter, TROUBLE) for any given period of time anyway… so why embarrass myself with a goodbye, when I’ll be back in a month or two anyway?
They’re probably right too. I taste the blood of fresh prey and I just spring INTO the feast. I smell fear, and I get a woody. And GAWD blogland is just a virtual smorgasbord of hypocrites and jerks to feed on. :0)
3- Since day one, I have been trying to tell a story here. I can’t seem to tell it very well, it’s frustrating the hell out of me, and nobody’s listening anyway… so time to move on. A new year is starting and there’s a LOT I want to put behind me.
4- My Epiphany. The whole point of that drawn-out post (besides my hatred of wimps who don’t stand behind what they say…).
My story… it was a journey that was meant to be taken alone. There was nothing anyone could have said or done to have made it any better. We’ve all been down that road, and we emerge a little stronger and a little smarter for it (unless it kills us, of course. Then it don’t do nothing.)
It will never be uttered in public again.
During the growing pains I was angry at people I shouldn’t have been. A sure sign of how much I value a friendship (even these fake online ones) is if I sought you out to make amends after a misunderstanding.
5- Hope that clarifies it. Thank you all for some of the wonderful emails & concerns.
One last favor?
Apparently I’m burnt out and need a break. Since a vacation is *OBVIOUSLY* out of the question… maybe…
…some of YOU can just stop blogging?
Pretty please? :0)
