Winding down

yes, it's true... the last post i made to this blog was this past saturday...

so, what's going on...?

i've been blogging for two principal reasons... one, to be able to understand the bigger picture of what's happening in the world, and, through providing that search with a means of expression, to accelerate my learning... and two, instead of letting my hard-won insights rumble and fester inside of me, using blogging to aid and abet the process of retaining my sanity by externalizing all that repressed energy... i'm pleased to say that i've been successful on both counts...

so, after three-plus years of blogging faithfully, almost obsessively, every day, putting up posts that i believe demonstrate pieces of the bigger picture, essential pieces of the emergent pattern that's been threatening to stifle everything good and true about humanity, i no longer feel the overwhelming need to add more pieces to that picture...

am i going to stop blogging...?

no, i'm not going to stop... i am, however, not going to continue with the single-minded intensity with which i've attacked blogging since march 2005... days may go by without a post and then there may be only one or two... and, yes, there could also be the occasional flurry... perhaps my co-bloggers will toss in the occasional post or two, but this blog will not be as it has been, unless and until...

"unless and until" what...?

when i start to see signs of real, fundamental, serious, positive, sustainable changes appearing on the horizon, i can promise you, i will come roaring back (and, no, i'm not referring to anything as cosmically trivial as obama winning the election)... what i'm waiting for is to see the dark forces truly on the run, being driven from their lairs in the dark of night by good-hearted citizens with torches, rakes and hoes... i believe that day is coming but, until then, there's little else i have to add...

meanwhile, life goes on as we watch our dark masters strut and fret their final hours on the stage...
