Back when I was in the Army, when we’d gather for formation and some dumbass officer was late, they’d give us a “break in-place”, which just meant don’t leave formation, but smoke ’em if you’ve got em until the officer figures out what he’s doing.
I’m going to do that for a week or two here — although in literary circles they call this a “sabbatical.” So I guess this is a “Sabbatical In-Place.” I don’t really want to, but psychologically I really need to.
I’ve got several things going on in my life right now that are just distracting me too much to concentrate correctly on the blog like I should. You may have noticed my postings have decreased over the last two months – that’s related to these issues. I have some health problems that should either get clarified or resolved in the next two weeks. Plus I’m about to start moving to a smaller apartment as well this week. That alone takes a lot of time. One of my family members has been ill recently, and is just now out of the hospital. I’m in the middle of making a YouTube video for my buddy @NaiveAbroad, too.
And my lovely and gracious wife of almost 22 years has moved out of our home; why, she won’t say. So you’ll pardon me if I’m a bit distracted and unfocused.
Prayers are greatly appreciated during this time. I’ll continue to post her as the spirit moves me during this time, but don’t be surprised if I miss a day or three.
