It snowed again…..
It snowed again….. Well at barely an inch maybe not snowed but like every day for the past two weeks a daily dusting. I guess I could wait until the sun returns and we have a few days of no snow, but at my age shoveling and ‘keeping up’ with whatever falls is way better than waiting and trying to struggle
with feet instead of inches of snow. I am sure I could use this as an excuse for my lack of postings, and the quality of those that do reach your computer, but the truth is far more simple, I am tired.
Tired of the frustration of pointing out the continual ironies being foisted on the American public. Tired of the fact that ‘we the people’ have to live in balance with our income and the government, both state and federal, do not. Tired of the fact that one can no longer express their displeasure at the way others
live their lives without being called a racist or bigot. Tired of the fact that even though our constitution was founded on and written too include the words of Christian principles, that today these values are ridiculed as obsolete and should not be expressed in the halls of government or for that matter our schools.
For years I received great satisfaction in writing and reading the comments you my readers would send, now I feel as if it is an exercise in futility. It may be enhanced by the fact that in Alaska we are now experiencing many more hours of darkness, or the fact that I can no longer interact with my blog. Whatever the reason each day when I climb to my loft and sit before this computer there arises no spark, no burning force that demands that I take my thoughts and like an artist paint a picture of the world as I see it.
No I am not giving up my attempt to voice my minority opinion, just shedding light on some possible reasons why these postings have been fewer than normal and lacked the quality you have been accustomed to. In a little over a month I will visit with my family in Texas and hopefully the daily interaction with my son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren will boost my spirits. I am also sure the access to running water, full time electricity and yes once again my blog page will also help wash this coating of malaise from me and recharge my spirit for when I return to Alaska.
For now though still tired
I return to clearing the snow
and vainly attempting
to push back the lengthening vale
of the Alaskan night.
