|This is not a picture of me, but it's a pretty good representation of how I|
feel about blogging at the moment.
Nothing about Donald Trump, even though every time I mention his name in a headline, my page visits soar.
Nothing about Hillary either. Or Bernie. Or DeBlasio. Or about anything else.
My brains cells ache. My hair hurts. My nose is twisted out of joint.
Maybe you've noticed that my pace of posting has slowed noticeably in recent months. Every time I sit down at the computer and look at my blog, a loud voice inside my head screams, "Noooooo! Not again! No mas, no mas!"
So I'm going to stop posting for a week or two. Given the rate at which I have been posting recently, you should hardly notice.
And I'm going next week to my favorite quirky American small town, Yellow Springs, Ohio. Maybe somewhere on the main street, Xenia Avenue, between a shop called Mr. Fub's Party and The Gulch Saloon (well, that's around the corner from Xenia Avenue, but even so) maybe there I'll find my soul sitting on a quirky, psychedelically-painted street bench, waiting for the next flash mob of dancing grandmas. (Yes, such things really happen in that town.)
"I wondered when you'd finally come back to me" my soul will say.
And I will put it on like an old glove, or an old shoe, or an old sweatshirt, or maybe a brand new hat, and I will feel comforted enough to start muttering about politics again. Or potty mouthed politicians. Or potholes in Manhattan. Or why I have a blog in the first place.
Until then, LEAVE ME ALONE, OKAY?
