To those one or two faithful THEODICY readers out there who wonder where I've been, the answer is simple: I've been busy! Hence, no posts to the blog in quite some time.
Though I love computers, the Internet, and blogging, my life circumstances are dictating that I spend time away from those things so that I can pursue some other interests. It is my deepest regret that a day is only 24 hours longs, as I have enough interests and responsabilities to make a 48 hours long day go by very, very quickly. Life is so very fascinating! So much to learn, so much to experience, so much to do! It is far, far too short in duration. I haven't even been able to master a single foreign language yet, and I'm on the lee side of 40 years old...
I'm going to experiment with blogging from work, something I never wanted to do, but if I dont' blog from the workplace, then I won't be blogging at all; for when I get home, the last thing I want to do is sit in front of a computer monitor and keyboard for another hour or two. I spend all working day staring at a computer screen, and chance to do something else is an opportunity quickly taken.
I'm getting to the point that when I get home from work, I don't want to spend any more than perhaps 15 minutes with e-mail and blogging. Of course I use my home PC for a multitude of different things, even the purchase of Christmas and birthday presents, but now I desire to move away from my life of ease and pleasure as a cyber surfer, and engage in some more human centered activities, especially with my cute, little family.
So I hope to DRASTICALLY reduce the amount of time I spend on the computer at home, and if all works well, maybe spend NO TIME at all on it during the week. The fact that I'm starting to take on the appearance of Jabba the Hut is a subtle but important reminder that I need to engage in more activities than simply moving my finger over a keyboard.
Wish me luck. Better yet, pray for me.
