I am halting this blog for the foreseeable future. No regrets or complaints - just ran out of time. I'm leaving it up for my own reference, but feel free to wander the archives.
Thank you for reading and your comments. You have added much to my life.
Update (Sunday 8/15): Nope, nope...this isn't working. Today, instead of a feeling of freedom and release, I found my normal surfing to be a total waste. It turns out linking and commenting was just my way of processing information, oddly like the motto for my blog. It's not I don't appreciate readers, but you guys weren't the underlying reason for the blog.
So on to Plan B: I'm going to set some hard time limits, say 2 hours/day (when home). However much I get posted is what there will be, and the time freed up will be available for other stuff.
Thanks for the kind remarks, and I apologize for the virtual drama.
