Those of you who’ve read through this long series of anecdotes will recognize that my life’s been spent in a forest of insignificance incapable of being recognized as such except by hindsight. To qualify for the insignificance merit badge each item running for office had to be at least a week in the past.
Lately that’s changed. I’ve got a 1950s Africa movie scene dust cloud of stampeding herds, pods, prides, coveys, flocks, and occasional individual insignificances coming at me out of the future, stirring up all manner of noise and dirt right here in my normally significant present. Even when they drift downstream into the past they keep zigzagging around trying to fight their way back uphill to make nuisances of themselves in my today mode.
Fact is I’ve got another reincarnation coming into the picture, as well, and though it’s probably insignificant, I need to tip my hat to it various ways. Just so it doesn’t get pissed off and decide I need to pick up on past themes earlier reincarnations. If I’ve got to bow and scrape a bit it’s worth it.
So I’m going to take some time away from this blog. Spend my time sorting through whatever I can convince myself is more significant than something else over the next period of time.
Those of you who’ve been frequent visitors, I appreciate you. Those who haven’t, I appreciate you, also.
I’ll send you no more omphaloskepsis unless something different happens.
