This is going to be one of those posts, maybe. Maybe not. I’ll try work through it quickly. First, the weather was crap all weekend long until yesterday afternoon so I got to spend some time, just me and my Higher Power, kicking things around because the deer sure were hunkered down for the weekend.
I’ve wanted to stop writing for a while now. I thought I’d said everything I have to say. On the other hand, every now and again, I run into one and hit a home run, coming up with a post that changes someone’s outlook on life for the better. This is why I started this site in the first place.
I know what you’re thinking. I thought it too… Why not just write the home runs and take the rest of the time for other things?
First, it doesn’t work that way with me. I have to be thinking about writing to come up with the home runs. If i’m not swinging the bat on a regular basis, no home runs.
Second, dude, I’m an ex-drunk. In case you hadn’t heard, we’re kind of all or nothing people.
Anyway, it’s all about helping other drunks and their families when it comes down to it and the fitness/cycling stuff is definitely a part of the recovery and it’s fun.
So to cut to the chase, with that as context to the Title, my idea was to use the weekend to get a glimpse at what it would be like without blogging… and it wasn’t all that bad. Or should I say, I didn’t miss it as much as I thought I would. While I read several posts, I didn’t write, start, finish or amend one post all weekend long.
One thing I did learn though, I still feel a bit like I would imagine Miguel Cabrera feels in a slump (all three days of it). Sometimes it ain’t easy but it’s definitely not time to stop swinging.
