Reviving the old blog

I think I’ll try to revive this blog again rather than starting a new one. “Breathing…at last” is still an apt title for my life, though my blogging activities will be quite different from before.

Since my earlier posts, I have become much more focused on reading, and less focused on healthy eating than before.

Right now, I have five books listed as “Currently Reading” on Goodreads…way too many…ridiculous. Two are short story collections by H.P. Lovecraft; one is a political/historical tome about Teddy Roosevelt that I got bogged down in when I was about 2/3 of the way through; one is a Kindle freebie I downloaded about people getting their hearts cut out and eaten; and the other is a book about incest, cutting heads off, and arguing about who is the rightful king in a land of dragons and a mean-ass dwarf (Clash of Kings).  Of all these books, my current favorite is the last one on the list.  Something about this mean-ass dwarf keeps drawing me back.

One reason I’m picking up this blog again is to provide myself a place to vent about the political numbnuts that populate the Facebook world I have dwelt in for several years. And, when I want to write about religion, I don’t want all the bible-thumpers feeling so obligated to set me straight. It’s sometimes fun and entertaining, but I really get tired of it. At age 60, I’ve put in a lot of time trying to be nice to such folks, but now, I’m just tired of dealing with them.

Even though it’s only 10:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning, I think it’s time for my first glass of wine today. I’ll polish off my cabernet I opened yesterday. This day holds great promise.
