Out of Words

This is my third attempt to write a post this evening. No amount of editing seemed to make the other two worthwhile. I don’t expect this one to be much better.

[…all efforts deleted after several tries…]

No, ain’t happening. I’m in a major funk and sick to death of my own words and thoughts.  I’m not going to subject any of you to any of it.

    I’m with you, friend! Decided to take a couple of days off – picked up a stack of books on random subjects from the library today and am just going to sink happily into an introverted reading funk. It’s the best kind of funk!

      The library sounds like a great idea! I’m about to log off and hit the couch with an old friend, a Terry Prachett Discworld book!

      Enjoy your time off! May it revive and revitalize you! (Maybe the blogsphere will think we snuck off together. :lol:)

    Meh, it happens, don’t be so hard on yourself. 🙂

      Thanks… not always easy for a perfectionist! I think I’m feeling a very strong sense of alienation and being so far out on the bell curve I’ve lost sight of humanity (or it of me). I’m getting it a lot in life and work; I’m starting to feel it here, too. I was thinking I’d find more of my own kind by now… I dunno, maybe the herd has mostly died off. My kind used to “blacken the (internet) plains” as we thundered across in vast, uncountable numbers. Now we seem an endangered species. Or, to abruptly change metaphors, Quasi really should have learned by now that coming down from his bell tower and trying to mingle with the normal towns’ folk…. never works well for anyone involved. It always seems to come down to the pitchforks and torches.

        You’re normal! What’s going on?

        That’s just it; I’m so not. I worked hard most of my life to be a unique individual; I succeeded. Perhaps too well. I worked hard most of my life to have a lot to offer (to make up for all my flaws); I thought I succeeded, and I have a head full of stuff that interests me… but doesn’t seem all that engaging to most of the world. Which, fine, I get; it was ever thus. I just thought in the vast wide world of the web I’d find more like me. Used to be almost everyone here was like me… but that was 15-20 years ago. Amazing how much has changed in that time. What do you do when last oasis seems to have evaporated?

        You’re unique, we’re all unique in our own way. I’m glad to know you on the blogosphere!

        I appreciate that, thank you.
