Building it up, collecting tidbits here and there, brainstorming ideas… I’ve gathered a handful of thoughts on the “closing” of my blog over the past few months, all the while anticipating that it will have to end. Granted, it doesn’t have to. But had to or not—it is, finally, coming to a close.
So—with a heavy belly and a light heart—the end:
Writing this blog has been awesome. It’s been good for me. It has mostly been good for me because it has forced me to organize my ideas so as to regurgitate them in an understandable way (as opposed to many of my other hard-to-follow rambles). And I’d be lying if I said that the ego boost all the wonderful compliments gave me were unhelpful. They were greatly helpful. It’s good to know some people out there empathize, agree, disagree, and well, actually think I can write well enough to entertain at least a few raccoons.
And, truth be told, I’d like to add more to those ideas and keep writing because it makes me really, really happy. But for an audience? Well, that I will not be doing anymore. At least not for a while.
Thus, as the prolific lyricist Nelly Furtado so rightfully howled alongside her wolves, all good things come to an end. And all bad things too, as this blog has caused more than its share of angst as well. So with that, adieu. Or, since we all know I don’t do goodbyes: a bientot.
Yeah, talk to ya later. Email me. Call me. Skype me. Facebook me. Link me in. I will pick up. I will respond in so many words it’ll make your heart froth. I have nothing better to do with my life right now than catch up with old (and new) friends and I’m languishing in the knowledge that I better get it in now because someday that leisure will be less easy to come by. Someday I will be more interested in the desk, ideas, toddlers, xyz in front of me than my dear friends from afar. I’m aware of that. So now, my friends: bye, hi!
