A Return to the Living

As some of my Blogging buddies have suggested, I am climbing out of my foxhole, and rejoining the realm of the living.  I feel kind of like the gopher on groundhog day, slowly sticking my head out and looking around.  Trying to decide if all those people standing there looking at me are dangerous, or just curious. 

I’ve spent far too much time locked away in my own head.  I can tell you it’s not a pretty place, and can be pretty intimidating if you let it.  I knew I had some issues when I couldn’t even enjoy my time in the wilderness during this last hunting season.  It’s pretty bad when a colorful sunset loses it beauty in your own eyes.  I can’t explain why, or perhaps I should say I won’t explain why I turned reclusive again.  Suffice it to say it wasn’t pretty or pleasant.  Well enough of my troubles, and on to something of interest.

I’ve redesigned Chihuatude, and have been updating and re-writing pages for the last week.  I still have a few final tweaks and twists to make here and there, -Sigh - all in time.  Soon after completing that, I will work on changing up Ruminations of a Small Town Mountain Boy.   There is a lot I would like to do with it, and now that I have learned many a trick, I can make some of my thoughts come to fruition.  The wonder of HTML and CSS, is still deceiving at times, but it’s getting much easier with trial and error.

I will start posting here, on Side Notes, on a regular basis.  I have not decided if I will do daily posts again, or just every once in a while.  I will make that decision as I go along.  I think it may be therapeutic for me to just write my thoughts each day, but if I do that I may make it a private site open only to invited readers.  For the time being, I will probably post only once a week on Ruminations, simply because I need to rejuvenate my creative sense, and clear many a clouded thought from my head.  Chihuatude will have regular updates as well, but no more that once a week.  As for Mountain Dreamer, I’m not sure where it will go at this time.  I guess I will have to teach myself how to dream again.   I will not be posting on The Inferno, I simply don’t trust myself just yet.  That site takes a certain amount of dedication, and I just don’t have it, nor the creativity to make it work.

I guess you can say I’m going to take small steps, and slowly weave my way back into my blogs.  I also have to slowly make my way around to all those wonderful blogs I used to read.  I will probably be slow about leaving comments, and making my presence known.

Life is like a game of poker, you have to play the hand you’ve drawn.  My current hand has absolutely nothing so far.  I keep waiting for the next card, too frightened to look at my hole card.  Too bad there’s not a second draw in life.

A new study shows that licking the sweat off a frog can cure depression. The down side is, the minute you stop licking, the frog gets depressed again.
