Breaking the Blog Fast

Most people observe Lent during the 40-day period leading up to Easter.  I've never been a bigtime Lent observer but sometimes in years past I would shun a few favorites like Cheetos, Ding Dongs, or caffeine.

This year it appears I decided to observe Lent after Easter.  I extended it well beyond 40 days and rather than setting aside harmful dietary substances I fasted blogging as I reflected on the meaning of life, black holes, string theory, the general level of stupidity among humankind and the like.

Actually, I was getting bored with blogging.  I'm kinda that way.  After I do something for awhile I get dissatisfied.  It drives my wife crazy, but I like it.  So, I quit blogging for awhile.

I know you're not supposed to do that.  But I did.

My daughter and son-in-law are at the hospital giving birth to my second grandson right now.  So, it seems a good time to break the fast.  I know my return will send a tsunami through the blogosphere but I'm going to risk it.
