Is this thing on?

Quite a number of things changed in my life over the past few years. The last year or so has been especially eventful, so much that looking at a few of the most recent posts in the Den, it begged the question of whether I should delete everything and start fresh, or keep the legacy and just carry on?

For now, I’ll just carry on. The wealth of history contained in this database is worth preserving at least for interest’s sake.

One distinct thing that has changed in me is my distaste for politics. Looking back at a few articles I wrote, I now ask myself why I allowed myself to be so worked up about issues. Fully realising even then that mine is an insignificant force that will not be able to influence much change. Don’t get me wrong though, I’m happy that I voiced my opinion; however, with my increased skepticism since then, and my belief that the world is utterly crazy and not worth getting worked up about – realising of course that ‘this too shall pass’ and people rarely age beyond 90, then things will definitely change, regardless of how people attach themselves to the idea of immortality.

Anyway, this is a meandering rambling post to kick the tyres and get myself again into the habit or writing and posting.

Chat soon.

    Glad to see you writing again. Hope this indicates life is more relaxed for you. Look forward to more observations on life in Bahrain and in general.

    There is nothing wrong with meandering imho. (I am a geologist). Rivers never stay straight, unless they follow a major fault. The stream of a river follows its energy and discovers new horizons. Your previous posts were more than just a flow of words, sometimes they made me think and/or smile.
