Today, I'm off duty. As I continue with this enterprise, I wonder sometimes if I should, as a matter of course, take weekends off and only post on business days. However, as you'll see in the coming weeks, some weekend dates constitute various anniversaries or occasions I wish to observe on the blog, so were I to take it easy on the weekends, it would be sporadic. Perhaps that would be fine and well and good with other bloggers
, but I've not exactly earned the benefit of the doubt with my various and past sabbaticals from blogging. Oh, well. So, whatever the case, at least for the time being, I may just note on a particular weekend day that I'm off duty. As here.
If only to alert you that I still live.
(I note that my last Off Duty post
was on February 18, 2008).
Alas! I have nor hope nor health,
Nor peace within nor calm around,
Nor that content surpassing wealth
The sage in meditation found,
And walked with inward glory crowned-
Nor fame, nor power, nor love, nor leisure.
Others I see whom these surround-
Smiling they live, and call life pleasure;
To me that cup has been dealt in another measure.
~ Percy Bysshe Shelly
