I’m not absolutely sure if this will be my final blogpost here. It should be, of course – I promised you as much. But promises – especially when one finds oneself in a state of unrequited love – are clearly made to be broken. A retrospective of sorts, then; an overview of what this blog [...]
For just over seven years, I wrote this blog quite blindly. I was reactive, puzzled, thrashing about where many (most) had already thrashed. I sometimes wondered if it was infirmity which drove me on. But in just over seven years, I was incapable of ever writing down – in a minute or two – the common denominators that drove me in so many of my posts.
Today, on the occasion of Tony Benn’s sad death, Brian Moylan sent my way this video. In less than two minutes, it encapsulates everything (I now realise) that made me write for seven quite helter-skelter years. Watch it – and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
No. I’m not unmothballing this blog quite yet. I’m writing over at http://error451.me/blog and blinkingti.me quite happily right now – the former with relative interest from my readers, the latter with very little interest for anyone except me.
But hey-ho, that’s the life on the open seas.
And with that celebration of a life sincerely lived, I burrow my way back into the anonymity from which I have temporarily emerged.
