Painted Black Friday July 21, 2006, 4 comments

A nibble of darkness appears at the edge of the sunshine of my mind. Soon, as if in a Stones tune, I’ll have to turn my head until my darkness goes.

The increased depth from which the groundwater of my writing is welling has conspired with a particularly intense six-month period with work and some spectacularly hot summer weather to leave me as spent as a dollar at the CNE. These are convenient excuses, anyway.

In short, I’m taking a break. A total eclipse of the mind, to bastardize a different lyric.

I’m going sailing. I’ve not had an entire week off since my appendix burst two and a half years ago, and that doesn’t count. It’s time, before its too late. I’ll be back, hopefully recharged and ready to go.

In the meantime, feel free to peruse the archives. For the more lazy and disinterested (and the search-bots) here’s a list of classic downpours (in no particular order, really):


If you’ve read all that, and want to check something else out, check out the blogs linked to in the left column. Some of them are excellent, others merely amazing.

I doubt a week will do it. It’s a good start, though, but I’m sure you’ll want more time. Then again, I’ve never been sailing, so it might be more efficient at the whole rejuvenation thing.

Take your notebook, though.

Commenting has ended for this post, but I'd still love to hear from you.
