Protheism has been barren lately. I am probably writing this to myself because I don’t have any narcissistic delusions of a readership audience. I feel no need, nor do I ever care to develop the need, to post-for-the-sake-of-posting. In fact, I post specifically for my own edification, to reserve my thoughts and have a creative outlet whereby I can look at myself some years down the road and say, “I was like that”? Yes, I do anticipate the retrospect shock from the preservation of my pedantic personality ;-} Also, I’ll admit, my memory aptitude seems to be plummeting; so some post are to “back-up” my thoughts. And who am I kidding? I am just opinionated I suppose!

Truthfully, I am not getting tired of blogging at all. There are a million things I want to post about, but getting to posting is the problem. Though blogging brings me joy, it comes after God, family, work, school and reading. School has opened a big can o' whop a** on me lately and I find that even though I have much to say—my mental jive is spread thin, or perhaps there isn’t enough grey custard juice to keep the rapid synapses in my brain firing. Moreover, when I do find a moments passing, I find myself enjoying someone else’s writing. Other people are so much more interesting than I am and periodically, I can scrape just enough time to agitate someone here and there.

I do plan to continue posting, whether or not it will be anything of value is debatable. So, if I am not just a brain in a vat; if there is actually anyone out there and you’re not just an automated virtual personality, this site is far from dead.

Sounds like your priorities are in order. Post WHEN you can and, as you convey, not for the sake of appeasing other's.

I truly enjoy your post's. They either back up my own thoughts, challenge some I was not always sure about, and are quite informative for the things/topics in life that I will eventually encounter. I also learn something new.

They help me to refine my debate with eating up some of the knowledge and wisdom that you have passed on thru your writings.

I also really enjoy following some of your debates. Sometimes I want to jump right in but then I am struck by the notion that often times you are doing quite well on your own. (Just always know I am in your corner bro!)

Write when you can, just allow me to encourage you not to stop. Too many out there NEED to read what you have to say.

Blessings and peace to you and the family.

TIO,

Shucks man [*blush*]. Thank you my friend, I appreciate the kind thoughts. Likewise, I enjoy your writings. You are a much less intolerant person than I am ;-). I actually have several blog posts marinating in my mind—just waiting to be written. But getting the time to write them is difficult. I started writing one and hope to have it up soon.

I always appreciate your input.

Excellent prioritization, BF. Your posts are worth the wait.
