In absentia

Good heavens, it’s been quiet around here lately. Most of my blogging energy has been focused here lately. At some point, balance will be restored and I will get back into the swing of talking about such fascinating and important topics as roleplaying games, movies I like, and my many virtues. I find myself missing the more personal blogging I get to do here.
I’m even ridiculously behind in my blog reading. Had you recently posted the cure for cancer on your blog, it would have gone unnoticed by yours truly. I’ll see if I can remedy that lapse… if I can find the courage to start up my feed reader. As long as none of you have been posting about politics. You haven’t been posting about politics, have you?

    Topher: pretty much any century’s politics, although I guess I wouldn’t have too much of a problem if we’re talking about the politics of nations and empires which no longer exist, and which cannot be connected in any way to modern-day politics.
    Ed: you did the right thing–don’t let anybody tell you otherwise! Now if I could only find the courage to make that choice as well 🙂

    It wasn’t courage, I just changed my attitude till I didn’t *want* to talk about politics anymore, cause I didn’t want to take sides and make other people the bad guy. I had tried to stop talking about politics through sheer willpower once before and failed miserably. 🙂

    There’s a good sermon lurking behind those words, Ed, about the two different ways we can deal with our own tendency towards bad behavior. We can try to force ourselves to change through willpower alone, or we can (with some Outside Help) change our heart/attitude so that the bad behavior loses its appeal to us.
    (Not that posting about politics is “bad behavior,” but you know what I mean 🙂

    I think I’ve come to the conclusion that I am always operating on maximum willpower, and any attempts to change things by applyiing more of the same will fail. Sad though that may be. 🙂
