Well, here we are in 2017. If you're keeping up, you may have noticed that this is my first post of the year...now. Previously, I had posted a couple of times about my new blog, THE GHOSTS OF 2017. A few days into the year, I decided to delete that blog. My heart wasn't in it. Last year had just seen SO many icons pass, ending so tragically with both Carrie and her mother, Debbie. It all hit me hard at the end. I wanted to do something to memorialize those people whose lives meant something to me as they pass but it was too much. It all brings home the concepts of time and mortality.
Now, tomorrow is my birthday. I turn 58 years old. It's not ancient, and I feel much younger most of the time. But I have some health issues and 2017 is already looking to take away any hope of my keeping them under control. We all lost so much last year and stand to lose even more this year. I have to admit that I'm now closer to 60 than to 50 and while I sometimes still feel I have yet to hit my creative peak, realistically, I have to admit I may have passed it.
I've closed up shop on all my remaining blogs except for this one and FOUR COLOR SHADOWS. The rest will stay up for those who still discover them. I hope to start posting real posts again here in the next few days. Hopefully they won't ALL be obits this year.
