I was asked if I'd quit blogging, or had given up writing verse — whatever you choose to call the form I post here.
I've labeled it vertical prose.
But it has been since Sept. 14 that I have posted anything on this site.
Well, I've been consumed with a physical fitness regimen that when I finish, I'm pretty much done for the day, mentally and physically.
How can this be?
I'm averaging almost two hours a day on a recumbent bike. That's a lot of bike at any age.
I guess this is an excuse, not a reason.
Another factor is that I haven't been reading as much as I did last summer. I finished Richard Stark's Parker series, and nothing else has grabbed me.
The news has engaged me, mostly because our president keeps proving me wrong — I keep thinking that we've seen his worst. I'm now convinced we've barely scratched the surface.
The obsession with fitness is a nice one to have, but I need to find balance as I gradually shed the weight I've decided to lose.
If you enjoy what i write, please be patient. I'm coming back.
