Nothing Interests Me

I don't even have the energy to waste time these days.

But my blood work says I'm fine.

It's a mystery.

hi thwap...I hope you're not feeling quite as bad as this sounded. But thanks for the laugh I needed it. I think a lot of people are feeling like you. I detect a great weariness out there. We are living in stressful times, and I think the internet is magnifying the problem. We are bombarded with so much information, our reality is so fragmented, we are torn in so many directions we end up going nowhere.
And blogging isn't what it used to be. The comment sections have been lost to Twitter, the personal stuff has gone to Facebook, and the sense of Cdn bloggers as a community has faded into memory.
I've thought about giving up the internet and focusing on quieter more personal artstic projects. But right now that sounds like too much work, and I've read several articles recently from people who decided to give up their internet use and they all failed miserably and/or went crazy. So I can't take any chances. Still what I'm saying is write for yourself on the side because it is a different experience and quite relaxing since you know nobody is going to read it, at least until it's finished, and you can write ANYTHING you want. Oh well cheer up eh? The Third World War might start next week. What more do you need to inspire you? ;)

You describe the state of blogs quite well.

The whole 140-something character of twitter just leaves me cold.

But it ain't just writing. I've given up on everything outside of my own 3-d experience.

I'm retiring all ideas of a non-ordinary career and surrendering to the caprices of fate. An ordinary man with no ability to influence events.

No, I will leave the influencing of events to cretins like the harpercons, or Canada's business class, or the dweebs Mulcair and Trudeau.
