The quest to find what was lost
Some say absence makes the heart grow fonder, but personally I believe that only applies to our loved ones and not the writings of some old curmudgeon. Yes my postings have been few of late but it seems to me the spirit that motivated me, these past couple years, has departed from my soul.
In less than a week I will be boarding a plane that will take me to true ‘civilization’ and family but before I leave I wanted to impart a couple thoughts to you my friends and readers.
You will never know how much I appreciate your continued readership of my blog through this time of my mental emptiness. I know full well the lack of biting wit and moral and political irony that you have found of interest has been woefully absent. I do not know if it is caused by my inability to visit my blog and read your comments or the satisfaction I received when I could enhance my postings and blog with photography that has me in this slump.
…but by the end of next week I should be able to see if that lack of ‘access’ was the root cause for my inability to write creatively. Then again it just may be time for this old man to hang up my keyboard and move on? After all it is not like there are not important events happening on a daily basis for me to comment on. Yet the spark I once felt that was ignited by these events has not been transformed into words by me for you to read.
In any event you have hung in there this long I am only hoping you remain until I start to write from Texas and we will see if the change in environment and renewed access to the internet and wordpress will breath life into this currently hibernating curmudgeon.
…So I will light a candle and pray
that I find what was lost, or have the insight
to see the new path God wants me to follow.
