Besides investing more money into The Outspoken TULIP than I care to admit (while living on a fixed income), I genuinely love blogging. Perhaps my stats indicate that I’m not that good at it, and I suppose using my own artwork has hurt me, but I love my blog. Writing exhilarates me, particularly when I do my own typing.
Now, however, my fractures severely limit the time I can be in my wheelchair, which in turn limits my time on my computer. We hired someone to come in mid-day, but I have serious doubts that she’ll work out.
Other issues (global, national and domestic) add to my sense of despair. Okay, I’ll admit it: I’m depressed. The only hope I have right now is in Christ’s return. Turning 65 has already taught me that being elderly squeezes all the pleasure out of this life. And America’s apparent determination to follow Venezuela into socialism compounds my pessimism.
Simply put, I’m in a bad place physically, emotionally and spiritually right now. As a result, I think The Outspoken TULIP needs to go on hiatus. As John says, hopefully it’ll be a short one. Because I love blogging, I agree.
