Good Morning Veterans,
Well another three day weekend has come and gone leaving me frustrated. The energy it takes to withstand the physical demands of creating art only to watch it turn to shit is far more draining than I remembered. Spending 18 hours plus laboring in my studio over the three day holiday, demonstrated to me that if I’m to take it seriously, I must commit much more of my free time than currently committed to.
It is with mixed emotions that I make the following announcement:
As of this posting I will be taking a hiatus from the ‘Diatribe’ to pursue my rekindled passion for art. It may be too late, but I must make the effort and determine for myself if the well is dry. Last night was mostly sleepless but not for the usual shit that keeps me up. Instead of physical issues, white noise, and the IRS, I was thinking about what went wrong and how I could improve on the genre I’m hanging my hat on! This is F-ing crazy!
Given the ‘Diatribe’ is on my son’s domain it will remain open and available for anyone wishing to post a story or commentary. So please “Talk amongst yourselves.”
I apologize to the two or three of you that actually read this piffle and trust you’ll seek counseling. So for now it’s I’ll see you later or perhaps a formal re-structuring of this our humble forum, but it will all depend on the next several months. I wish each of you continued success and wish you the best. Thanks for the last six years; it’s been the best kind of therapy for this old curmudgeon. Take Care.
