Late Post Today – December 13, 2020

Late post today

I’ll use a moment if I may,
To explain this post’s delay.
No, I was not off at play,
Or working so my bills to pay.
Was no excess of Cabernet,
Nor idly fishing off the quay.

What was it then, I hear you say,
Asking I dismiss dismay.
Oh, alright, a minute stay –
I’ll take a second to allay,
And put concerned thoughts astray,
With my terse reply, okay?

I was surly, but that’s cliche,
Sent early meds upon a tray,
Twice daily is the normal way.
Borne by the burly lad in gray,
I dined upon that slim buffet,
Then slept the whole damned day away.

‘Tis the season. For interruptions, distractions, rearrangements, and mild confusion.

Ran some quick assessments.  Going back to M/W/F posts.  Maybe even less than that.  Excellent underlying reasons. Time, ROI, previous commitments, and end goals foremost but by no means a complete inventory. 

Time is in short supply.  ROI is disappointing.  I’m w-a-a-a-y behind on completing other works and submittals.  Lost sight of the fact that this “blog” was supposed to be a means to an end, so I need to refocus; the means overshadows the end.

See ya ‘round.

  1. I agree with Hobbo, blogging is to distract the mind from the mundane things we must surely do…But, it does become addictive…That was a very nice poem SP!
    “I do believe that though I may,
    I will not look for another way,
    to say the things that I must say,
    or to task my brain to seize the day,
    so I’ll just search, while down I lay,
    upon the green grass where a ray
    of yellow sunshine comes my way
    and there I’ll stay…”
    All the best my friend and may you accomplish much this week and always!
