If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer . . .
If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire,
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
~ Shel Silverstein
So here’s the thing…
I’m going to take a couple-of-weeks-to-a-month break from this blog. Not because I don’t enjoy writing it, but because I don’t know if what I’m writing is what I should be writing.
Let me explain.
When I first began I said this blog would be: “A little wisdom. A little whimsy. A little pathos. A little whatever. Nothing necessarily special. From the point-of-view of a retired person.”
Now, after 130 posts, I’m thinking there might be too much whimsy, too much whatever, and too much of nothing necessarily special.
But I’m not sure.
So I’m taking a break.
Taking a break to do some reimagining.
The other thing is that I’m not certain if I’m writing something that is worth the time of those of you who are reading it. I do not keep numbers on how many people read what I write. I’m not too concerned with that. I just like to write. And because I taught mass media for years and years, I like to share what I write.
So, if you are reading this, leave me a comment in the form of a suggestion, about directions you’d like to see this blog take when I return (and I promise I will return). Suggest anything, except that I write about politics…which I will not do. Don’t be afraid to be pleasantly critical. Don’t be afraid to suggest wild-ass ideas.
I’ll look forward to hearing what all of you say. We can all think together about where to go from here.
Talk to you in March.
