Same ol' Same ol' -- Why Not?


I have been considering some major changes in the direction of these last years of my life.

A wise person, it seems to me, will as much as possible set a course through life that runs through a succession of climes that promise varying degrees of relative happiness, But if one does not do so while young, then this can surely still be done, more moderately of course, throughout the remnants of the final span of years.

Instead of continuing to strive for some limited success as a professional writer, which is now become no more than foolish folly, I have decided to abandon the task of creative writing completely.

What do I enjoy at this stage of my life? Reading. Listening to interesting radio programs. Watching engaging TV and compelling movies.

Why should I not do those things then, instead of attempting to do that which I am no longer able to do?

How about maintaining my blog?

I can do that.

But only in a simplistic manner, continuing to announce birthdays of well-known persons and producing my Word Of The Day, and things like that.

Why not?

Why the hell not?
