Hiatus?

I am (probably) going to take a break. I have no desire to stop blogging, but my energies are finite, and I NEED to get at least one and possibly two books going. It has become apparent that I am not getting enough done, and that I am often exhausted by end of day while having accomplished very little. Parkinson's and the medicines used to treat it both have subtle (subtle?!) effects on me mentally as well as physically; lack of sleep, compulsions, and ADD all play a part.

I have no plan to give up the blog, which I enjoy almost more than working, partially becuse I have made so many friends through it, but I may save it by getting my "real" work up to a better- paying level. Right now the compulsions and other neurological factors mean that if I start doing stuff for the blog  when I begin work I stay on it until energy runs out and I plant my face in the keyboard.

I also promise four subjects I will blog on if they come up before my self- imposed silence is over: last pics from Laramie; Lauren's visit; one more gun; dog evo.

Bear with me-- if all goes well it won't be long. The last long string of posts was made with the idea of leaving you with a little food for thought. And I WILL continue to answer emails.

I was really wondering what was up with the diatus of all last week. Now I see you had been quite busy. Keep it up. Thanks.

Delightful, Dan. Not only do I want to see it-- there are times I wish I were him!
