If Anyone Wants Me I'll Be On The Golf Course [Jul. 17th, 2006|08:12 am]
Tony Grist
Guess what? I seem to be running out of opinions. When I started this LJ I was bubbling over with things I needed to say , now I'm reduced to writing about football and rabbits.

I've made my position clear on the leading issues of the day:

Bush- hate him
Blair- hate him
God- doesn't exist
Jacobean revenge drama- cool 

And I hate to repeat myself.

I'm not going away- and I'm certainly not deleting- but I may not be putting in an appearance here quite as often as I used to.

On a positive note, I've been beavering away at Purchas #3 and expect to start posting it at purchas in a week or two.

Tony, I've been crashed on my computer for three days, and you were the first person I came to visit this morning.

Your everyday life is a pleasant undercurrent in my own now; I don't care about your opinions, but I like so much having glimpses into yours--and Ailz' and bunnies'--days...

I've found that my effortful days on LJ--when I was writing "pieces" almost every day--have, partly due to my busy, transitional life lately, morphed into quick diary entries about my life. I began to worry that all my LJ friends would desert me if I didn't have interesting things to say, but that hasn't happened, thank Goodness.

I come over to see what's up with you and your family every day, whether or not I comment, and I always feel a little happier after checking in.

Your friend Jackie

So that's where you've been.

I think I'm suffering a kind of burn out. Like yours my posts have been getting simpler and less literary. And I've been commenting less. But, just because I don't say anything about a post doesn't mean I haven't read it....

If it weren't for my friends- and you in the forefront- I might now walk away from LJ. But I don't want to lose touch with this community.

Maybe I'll find it easier to post if I relieve myself of the burden of having to turn out something bright and opinionated every day....

Your writing style is so pleasant to read that I don't really care what you're talking about--it's always interesting and readable.

(And I've noticed something in my own posts, that I tend to get more comments and interest in my quick, rattled-off entries than comments on my more carefully constructed essay-posts. I think it's surely because this is a community of friends who really are interested in our everyday lives, as we are in theirs!)

I think you're right.

Though I do love your more elaborate entries.

But perhaps the more complete and finished and nicely dovetailed a post is, the less there is to say about it. The writer has said everything that needs to be said and all the reader needs do is nod in assent.
