Why Absence Isn't Making My Heart Grow Fonder [Jan. 7th, 2017|09:06 pm]

I have many things I'd like to write and post here.  However, I'm physically limited these days in how many words I can write.  I have a novel to finish, a long official report to compile, and deadlines on both.  I also have to show up on my own current-project blog because it's only three months until Book Day for COLD WELCOME, and make at least token dashes into Twitter and Facebook.  Which means...I'm not here, saying all those trenchant, important things about What's Going On or (perhaps more usefully)  Writing in the Present Moment.   And I apologize.  Twenty years ago--even ten years ago--I could have done it all.  Now I can't.  Reality bites.  BUT I have a whole satchel full of ideas for when I've met both deadlines and slept a week to recover therefrom.  Meanwhile, here's a picture of a deer in the backyard eating acorns and then deciding it was time to leave, on December 27, 2016:

I *hate* getting old! :-) Not having the energy anymore & walking into a room and thinking "Now why the hell did I come in here??"

One of the best comedy routines I've seen on getting old is Billy Connolly's on the noises we make as we get up or sit down. :-) I did a quick search just now to see if I could find it on YouTube but no luck. Perhaps you've seen it?

Anyway... don't apologise or feel guilty over it; you don't owe us, we owe you! You've given us many, many hours of great entertainment & if you want to sit back now, smoke a pipe (metaphorically) of Longbottom Leaf or Old Toby and sip a glass of good wine then DO it. :-)
