Tired and shutting down for a while.
It may be days, it may be weeks, but as I am reminded numerous times every day I have things to finish in the real world. If something pops up that I need to comment on, I will, but for right now I am sick, exhausted, over-tasked and just slap disappointed at the quality of my work product in several areas. I am not over-discouraged. I am not quitting the fight. I just need a break. My daughters are home from college and I would like to enjoy them while I can. There are economic needs that press in (especially paying back friends for legal fee frontage) that must be addressed. Finally, there are my own preparations that need to be seen to, and I have committed to help out a number of newbie militia groups who need an experienced eye in their equipment, organization and training. All these things I can do, but not this too.
A blog becomes a weight after a while, like an emotional ruck that you put on every morning to make that day's road march of duty. There are days that I don't mind shouldering the responsibility and days when I sprint ahead at the sheer joy of making a difference. I try to have fun and to entertain y'all as we deal with some of the most awful aspects of what I believe are the coming dark days ahead. But just right now, it has been a while since this has been fun.
I want to thank y'all for the support you have shown me over the past couple of years. I even thank those of you who have thrown verbal brickbats at me in the process. It keeps me on my mental feet, and every action, thought and even principle should be subject to, and able to resist, outside challenge.
I will have a couple of Christmas gifts for y'all, but as far as a daily blog, I need some R&R from Sipsey Street. I will, however, release any comments you may make on existing posts in the interim.
Feel free to email me at GeorgeMason1776ATaolDOTcom, if you need to draw my attention to something important.
In the interim, look to your preps.
Cherish your loved ones.
God bless you all.
I'll be back.
