Obviously, I haven't been into writing the blog for quite some time now, so I'm going to take the suspense out of it and shut it down. "Hiatus" gives the impression that I'll be back, so I'm not going to play around with that, although I have no plans for removing the blog itself from online. Even though the common wisdom is that internet means forever, unless you're an IT person it can be very difficult to find anything ever again once you've slipped from search engine algorithmic settings!
I had been tossing around the closure for a while, and as recently as a few days ago, when the picture below came to my attention...sort of cemented it for me. The upcoming Labor Day weekend plays into it in its own way too.
Its been almost 40 years since I moved away from Clarence Center and into Buffalo, and I've never regretted it. As such, I may be interested in the long ago history, but current events, not so much. I can toss out opinions that are guaranteed to piss people off, but why bother? It's not mine anymore, hasn't been, and isn't going to be.
Labor Day in Clarence Center is when many of us get together again, one weekend out of the year, and it's great to see everyone again! Of course, some see each other all the time, and that is good. Others I see from a distance, people I haven't spoken to in many, many years. They still hold a place in my heart, but we've all moved on. Such is life.
I'm not retiring from work yet (unfortunately, but yet fortunately, I can), but one never knows. Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans, and all that.
I find that most of the topics I want to write about, I already have. Opinion hasn't changed much either, so it has become rather stagnant...Buffalo rocks, the Bills are in chronic "next year", and been hoping Ruff would get the ax for years over in Sabreland. I'm still a Democrat in philosophy, although politicians themselves can enthuse or deflate, regardless of which logo they are wearing.
Ironically, I'm still writing, but doing it the old fashioned way via paper and pen, rather than leaving scribbles all over the internet :)
I've been traveling in a different direction for a while now...The blog is part of the old, and sometimes one needs to make the declaration that it's past time to cut the cord, rather than leaving it as somehow implied. It's time!
Thanks for reading -it's been real :) Peace, love, light, and laughter to you all!
