Surveying the Landscape

I’ve spent the last couple of weeks thinking about whether or not I should continue this blog. Yeah, I know I’ve said this before. Part of it is my circumspect gene pestering me. Always pestering me. Always putting me in check, and then years go by, and I regret I got in the box, that my creativity was so squelched it’s a miracle it survived. But why do I listen? Very simple answer. I don’t want to be a fool. I do not want to be a fool. Yes, I said that twice. And the reality is I’m not a fool. I have been sensible almost from the time I exited the hatch. Sensible is my frigging middle name. At least according to my family and all who have known me with more than a passing acquaintance. But back there in childhood I was able to be sensible and creative.

The other part I’ve been mulling is my longing to do something else in cyber world, and I am going to do something else. Not now, but it’s coming, and sometimes I have a hard time not talking about it. I get excited while I’m working on it and want to start gabbing, but it’s not time. Some of you know, but keep it to yourself please since I’m not ready yet.

For now I’m continuing this blog for too many reasons to explain. Suffice to say Richard Armitage is just a small part of it. No offense, Rich.

And thanks to all of you for listening to my stuff or at least some of it.

  1. Glad to hear it, Frenz! And looking forward to hearing of your new creative endeavors …. if and when you choose to share it.

    I look at the next 3 months of my life and am sometimes overwhelmed that I don’t know which city I will be in in any particular week. People want to know. People like to plan. But sometimes we just don’t really know for sure until we’ve arrived.

    At any rate, I’ll be checking in here to read and comment for as long as this blog still fuels and works for you. :)

  2. To thine own self be true. But I will say that I thoroughly enjoy this blog and it was nice to know (for years) that I was not the only one with a “RA frenzy”. You enrich my life.

  3. That sensible thing sure sounds familiar…warring with the need to create. I blame my Germanic heritage ;)

    I’m glad you said you’d stay for a while more, Frenz. I’ve only just met you! But I will also follow your next project with interest, I’m sure, since it is more than your RA content that draws me here.

  4. Frenz, I think I know how you are feeling when you mention not wanting to look foolish. The week I had off at Mardi Gras sent me into an RA tailspin, due to reading RA blogs almost every waking moment that week, and replying to most of them!!!. I loved every minute, and the “afterglow” lasted for a long time. As I got really busy, and had no time to reply but read due to blogs that I followed, I begin to see how some could think I have no life and may have had a break with reality if I had that much time to talk about a fantasy! I will always be a true blue RA fan, but not be as vocal about it. I will always read your blog, no matter the topic. I support you and all your creative ventures. Please forgive me for saying so much about myself here.

  5. Your blog has been, and is a pleasure.

    You will know when the time is right to leave it – when the new endeavour has become the most engrossing project. Life is not static,,,

  6. I wish you good luck in your future projects. :-)

  7. For those of you who haven’t been hanging with me since the beginning, this is my quarterly cold feet. This time the bout was just a little stronger. LOL! However, I really am working on something else, but for the most part, this blog has been so much fun that I’m not sure when I’ll call it quits. I had originally planned on being done on my first anniversary and hopefully my second, ad now I’m working on my third. I don’t foresee going beyond that, but at this point, I’m not making anymore predictions. Whenever I do quit, it’s going to be a hard day.

    I thank you all for your warm wishes, and the best part of all of this has been getting to know you and so many others!

  8. I know just how difficult it can be to keep making that decision … :)

  9. It’s hard to stop! And especially when I haven’t met my goal. I’m determined to reach that.
