Overload


My blogs have been getting further and further apart recently and for those that are regular readers, I'm sorry I haven't been more active. For those that are reading this for the first time, you don't care but I'll say I'm sorry to you too.


My problem is not for a lack of ideas to write about, it's the exact opposite. I have too damn many things on my mind that I want to get off my chest, or share, with everyone. I can hear many of you out there saying, "who gives a crap what he's thinking about?" You're right. However as I have repeatedly told you, I do this for my mental health not yours.


For example. Today I was set to write a blog about how the ending of the shift in MLB games has highlighted a position that nobody considered, second base. I'm not going to get into the why's and wherefores' right now but it is an interesting thought that I will share another time with everyone.


As I got up this morning all set to write that blog I foolishly read the news from overnight and now I'm pissed off at the insane boycotting and attacking of trans people and others in the LGBTQ+ community. I just don't get why people have such hate for these people who are not doing one thing to hurt them.


This of course reminded me why I am currently at war with everyone associated with the Republican party because of the steady stream of nonsense coming from them and the people supporting that party. Don't even get me started on 45 who is the biggest reason for my anger at the GOP.


Toss in the absolute politization of the Supreme Court, the insurance companies ripping us off and then abandoning us when things get rough, women's rights being trampled on, and about forty other things I think about all day every day and you can see how it makes my brain hurt.


I then put even more pressure on myself by worrying that since I've gone so long between blogs that when I do write one I want it to not only be interesting but that it is about something you want to read about. If I don't get many hits then I feel bad for you guys and think, maybe I should write another one, but I know that when I write them too close together you don't ever look at the second one.


I know, you think I'm nuts but imagine how you would think if I told you that this was only about 5% of what goes through my head on any given day. Of course about 40% of it I could never write about because I would have the feds knocking at my door and most of you would never speak to me again. Don't worry, it is nothing sick and twisted, just different.


Anyway, I wanted to let you know why I've slowed down in my postings recently so that you knew what was happening here at blog central. Eventually I'll get everything out that needs to escape my brain and I'll be back to my normal nuttiness.


Thanks for your continued support.

Well, I for one appreciate your incredible “rants” as you say. I frequently read and marvel at your insight… and writing abilities. Of course we are from the same “tribe” I realize now, but still.. who knew you were this gifted? I also crossed over” in the very early 90s, once I moved to Chicago and became enlightened by finally being involved with real people..of every walk of life in an amazing city with the blend of east coast- midwest attitudes, talents, dedication and values. I “never knew” - coming from Indy- the original Home of the Clan with indoctrination and all that entails. We all can change. You can’t un-know once you get out of the cornfields and st…

As always I appreciate your thoughts and kind words. I guess we need at least another 200 years to change peoples minds.
