Eleven ten. The tide has ebbed and exposed me as a person who is neither a Christian nor a Republican, but rather a lone philosopher seeking his own answers to the riddle of life. In the process, I seem to have worn out my welcome on WordPress, or anyway, no one is reading or liking my posts anymore. It occurs to me that I can do my writing elsewhere and not bother or burden you with my thoughts any longer. As it is, blogging is a waste of time and effort and money for me. The worst of it is the feeling of rejection by the people I’d believed I could count on. Perhaps I was deceived in thinking this. Whatever; times have changed, and so has the climate of the blogging community. At last I think I’ve come to the end of the line. Therefore goodbye and best wishes to all of you.
