Last Wednesday through Sunday I was in Boston spending time with a group of friends. What a great town, and what a great bunch of people. I had a blast. I talked, laughed and sang (yes, sang) so much that my voice went out of whack and I was being referred to as "Peter Brady."
Bogs does Boston
Being out of touch with the world for several days while spending time with such positive people has made me reluctant to crawl back into the muck through which I regularly seek to find or provide clarity.
I have been avoiding most media sources all week. Essentially, I’ve had my head in the sand, and find those tiny rocks aren’t irritating my ears in the least. I honestly feel changed for the better after my sabbatical, and I am not in a hurry to change back.
This is not to say I feel the people who visit my site are negative; you’re all awesome. It’s the topics, which I pick, that are draining to me. Not so much the mechanics of putting down words into a post (I enjoyed doing the required papers in college that so many fellow students grumbled about), but having to contend with some ugly things (war, ignorance, corruption, etc.) so regularly.
Yet, I started this blog because I had a lot to say, and wanted an unfiltered outlet for my views. That's what I got. What am I complaining about? I’m not really complaining, I’m just questioning myself.
And those questions are: What now? Post less frequently? Keep it light and breezy? Revert to my "older, funnier" posts? Give it a rest for awhile? I still haven’t decided. Maybe in a few days I’ll simply snap out of it (my aversion to all things negative). I continue to ponder my future direction on this site.
