Almost ... TOO quiet!

Almost all of the bloggers I regularly check out have been not writing much of late. I almost feel as if everyone agreed to move out and forgot to mention it to me.

Should I join the Facebook crowd and the Twits, and ease out of the blogging bit? Or should I buck the crowd and keep on sharing my odd thoughts with the dozen or so who have stayed with me on the journey? Why is there air anyway?

Perhaps railing against the fear mongers and tyrants has become old and repetitive, and some find it fruitless. I could insert a cliché here, like "it's always darkest just before the dawn," or that nugget about good people failing to act, but I have no magic words to restore hope and freedom.

(Huh. I always thought hope and freedom were the words that went together. I knew "Hope and Change" sounded a little suspicious ...)

Everyday life may have sidetracked a bunch of the folks along that there right rail, but I'll keep coming back with a word or two of encouragement. See ya next time. Oh, and the fear mongers and tyrants? They're just scared little boys and girls who can't handle concepts like liberty that expect people to be responsible grownups. Don't take them so seriously.

Maybe it is the summer winding down, gardens ripening, and squeezing the events before the chill sets in (for some). Your last paragraph sounds a lot like the Calculated Chaos (by Butler Shaffer) chapters I've been reading lately. It inspired my last post, too.

The quiet does make one think they are up to something, doesn't it?

Perhaps it's because the enemy of the people, Congress, is not in session. Let's enjoy these few days that the enemy retreats to plan their next attacks on liberty and freedom.

I don't see myself ever joining Facebook or Twitter (as if I could ever express a complete thought that briefly!). I'm not giving up on blogging—just been too busy offline to devote time to it. Once we're settled in I'll be back.

Yes, I am remiss with my posting. I've had some other things I've been attending to here at the home front. I haven't thrown in the towel, I promise =).

BTW-- Just saw Up! this evening. It's as wonderful as you expressed. The storyline filled my heart with joy. We're contemplating renaming Mr. Skeeter Doug LOL.

Hugs to you. Thank you for hanging in there. Your words are inspiring and I haven't taken the time I should to tell you that.
