Finally got rid of the crud. Three days of lolling around and sleeping 12-14 hours a day does do the trick.
I think that I will post today about the on-the-job dangers of a prophet, whether self appointed or otherwise. One of my favorites is Dave Cohen over at Decline of the Empire. Now, Dave is having a spot of trouble seeing what the hell is the use of an ongoing blog.
Hell, been there, done that, got the t-shirt.
In the end, this piece of work is a way for me to set down thoughts. The posts aren't a way to guide the planet out of it's seemingly inexorable downhill slide, they are a way to document the choices that are seeming to be made for possible use later. I see this more like a scientists laboratory notebook than the Book of Daniel.
So, all my friends out there, and if you have been reading this for as long as some of you have, you are my friends, keep centered on what you are doing. Saving the world with a blog just ain't gonna happen.
But you might save yourself. If the blog starts weighing you down, dump it. Your friends will understand. In a way, reading other peoples blogs is kinda like being a bartender, sometimes your best customers are the ones who shouldn't be there in the first place.
