4-25 On the 19th I had quad-druple open heart by-pass, I am reading emails sporadically but not answering, I should be laid up for over 8 weeks.
The webpage is shut down.
I keep telling myself … Focus, you just have to hang in there. The man who sticks to his plan will become what he used to want to be.
Perhaps I am like Icarus, simply a man who dared to dream, a man who flew too close to the sun. Or like Daedalus, a man who equipped his son with unsafe wings made of easily melted beeswax? I would say the answer to this question is all and neither.
Dream little or dream small … In the final tally … it doesn’t matter at all.
Most people think life sucks, and then you die. Not me. I beg to differ. I think life sucks, then you get cancer, then your dog dies, your wife leaves you, the cancer goes into remission, you get a new dog, you get remarried, you owe ten million dollars in medical bills then you work hard for say, thirty-five years, and you pay it back and then one day you have a massive stroke, your whole right side is paralyzed, and then you die.
Some of you have noticed that I have been spending a lot less of my time at the keyboard, and instead have increased my reading time. As this new routine seems to agree with me, I see it continuing for at least a little while in my foreseeable future. In other words, I am anxiously anticipating spring, some time on the porch with a good book, a glass of sweet tea. We will not be adding any new material for the time being, this is the drill, the new standard, less of this, and more of that.
Possibly some of you will miss the daily rant, the assault on life. The reality is this … Things change, we adapt and we mosey on the down the path. In the archives you will find over fifteen-hundred articles and/or posts, please feel to help yourselves. Thanks to all of our regular readers and commenters, it has been fun.
Now it is time to move on.
