Closing Time

I came to an epiphany of sorts. It’s a painful one to be sure.

I’ve been writing online for over 20 years. At it’s peak this Website saw over 5k visitors per day, and a robust commentary. Slowly, by attrition waged on me by responsibilities that has declined to next to zilch save for spammers.

I simply don’t have time to do this anymore. Further as The Armorer once said, the muse has left me.

Unfortunately for me these days I spend more time in airports than I do anywhere else. It’s an unpleasant realization that when I am inspired to write something I’m usually 2,000 miles from a place that I can.

Combined with my fear of losing my job if I post something that someone determines is a “micro aggression”, “racist”, “sexist”, or any other wonderful reason to be offended that the ne’er lived can come up with, and its not worth the efforts.

Will I return? Maybe. Hopefully. I’m still on Twitter (because I can run it from my phone). I’m still on Tumblr as well. I do not intend to shut down the site because…well, frankly hope springs eternal and there is still a lot here to love.

But today’s world is not kind to those who attempt to freely speak their mind, or whom disagree with any status quo. Its a sorry state of affairs to be sure.

Yes I am fully aware that doing this surrenders to the bastards. Unfortunately, I have bills to pay, an education to finish, and a life to lead, and those things are more easily done in my own way out of the *cough* limelight *hack* that is the Internet.

Ciao!

2011: Sickness & Storms

My immune system is a joke.

It didn’t used to be so. But several years of Parkinson cocktails have left it on life support. I used to never get sick. About once a year was the average.

But I’ve spent the last week so sick I could barely lift my head off the couch. A bout with pneumonia has left me feeling like a kitten today as I returned to work.

It’s been a helluva year so far. I spent 2 weeks nearly in my house due to record breaking snow in the area. I missed this last week due to being sick.

And now of course it’s almost that time of year again here in the Midwest. With spring comes green, rain, spring storms and of course, tornado‘s.

But between now and then they are calling for snow again this week.

My experience with 2011 isn’t much different I think, than our nation as a whole.
