The Last Post...
I've given it serious consideration.
It's been wonderful and now it's time to say goodbye. It's time to go. And time too, to take another step back away from society.
Witnessing what is happening in the world on a daily basis is not a happy experience any more.
So much of it has become far too upsetting and depressing and it's hard not being affected by it.
Greed, speed, need and creed have got to me.
The internet is a wonderful thing. It rules the world but it's not going to rule mine.
I will miss the research, the creative writing process, but there are other things to do.
There'll be more time for fishing.
I have enjoyed immensely, the nearly seven years of writing and publishing well over two thousand posts without missing a day.
And now it's time to take my simple life
in The Flying Tortoise and simplify it further.
I have delighted in my role as a social commentator and I shall keep doing that
but with the spoken word,
performing using rhyme and guitar.
I want to thank you all very much for following, for commenting and being part of this blog and my life for the last long time and for visiting here many thousands of times each week.
And millions of times over the years.
I am just completing my first seventy years and am looking forward to doing some things differently in the next seventy.
I will feel lost for a while I'm sure.
This blog has been a big part of my life over these last few years.
And so too has your wonderful feedback and the many complimentary and encouraging emails. Life will feel strange without this blog.
But I will find myself and perhaps catch up with you somewhere somehow again too.
I will miss you very much. And life moves on.
My love and best wishes to you all...
