My Return?

I haven’t posted on this blog in a very long time. In fact, the last post before this one is dated 2013. As of this writing, we’re now more than halfway through 2016. That may not be a long time cosmically, but it is a long time between blog posts! But I wanted to update this right now because I think I may have a purpose for this again. I won’t go into detail right now; this post is more to affirm that I still remember how to do this. The technical stuff, I mean. Not that anyone is really following this blog anymore–but this post may explain, at some time in the future, why there is such a large gap between posts. Well, I guess it doesn’t really explain anything, does it? I’m sorry for that. Really. I am. But I’m just not yet ready to throw myself into it in the way I need to be in order to really explain anything. But if this actually works, and it actually shows up on my long-defunct blog, then at least one hurdle will be surmounted.

Thank you for your time and patience. I love you all.

It’s been a long time, hasn’t it?

I haven’t posted to my blog for a very long while. I’ve been suppressing this part of me for various reasons, and I can’t do it any longer. While I may not be able to post to this as often as I would like, I will post to it with some regularity again, God willing. There are things that are working in my mind and in my heart. I believe changes are in store for me soon, and I am praying that I am following the path He has set before me. More to come ….

Long time, no see

I haven’t updated my blog in a long time, I know. Not that there are that many regular readers here, but there were some. And there are many reasons for the delay. One of those reasons was that I was tossing around the idea of moving my blog to another platform. I have decided against that. It shall stay here. One of these days, I may purchase a URL for it, but it will still be here when I do. So, now that crisis is solved, and I can move on. I do have much to share, and some of it has to wait for a very special day, but I’ll do everything I can to make sure this stays much more up-to-date than it has. Until then, do take a gander at some of the blogs in my blogroll on the right side of the page here. Down, just a little bit. There you go. These are all A-1 approved-by-me blogs. Enjoy!

Quote of the Day

I’ve decided to try running a little “Quote of the Day” here on the site. I just want to see if I can do it and how it works. I’ve thought about doing this on Twitter from time to time, or maybe even my Facebook page, but for some reason, I got the idea to add it to my sidebar here. So, I’m going to try it out. The quotes will be culled from everywhere. Books, TV, movies, games, whatever. I may even throw in a personal quote from someone I know from time to time (“Skiing?”). It’s an experiment right now, so we’ll see how it goes. I added a “Quote of the Day Archive” page as well, just for reference. Comments are always welcome. Let me know if you like it! Oh, and I’ll have some more real content coming soon.
EDIT:
I tried it for a couple of days, and I decided it was something that would work better on my Facebook page than here. Besides, my Facebook page could use some content!

A Word About the Debt Ceiling … Or Not

I keep hearing about the debt ceiling. It’s all over the television. It’s smeared across every newspaper. Twitter is abuzz. Everyone has something to say about the debt ceiling. As I search for something to write about, I keep thinking that maybe I, too, have something to say about the debt ceiling. But the more I think about it, the more convinced I am that I do not have anything to say about the debt ceiling. Then it hit me: that’s the point.

Old Directions, Anew

Priorities are something one should take out, dust off, and give a good once-over every so often. It’s healthy and reaffirming. It’s nice to know that you, yourself, still approve of what you’re doing, since you’re not likely to get that from anywhere else. The media will hound you, day after day, with messages designed to make you re-evaluate what you think and do. That, in and of itself is another rant for another time, but it’s still good to get that affirmation from yourself, if you can’t get it anywhere else.
