Now, the maybe-not-entirely-good news: The Lemming's been getting frazzled. Also agitated, bothered, crazed, distracted, excited, flustered - all the way up to perturbed and pooped. Looking on the bright side, the Lemming's not bored. Actually, it may be impossible for the Lemming to get bored: this is a fascinating world, and that's almost another topic.
This is a slightly-serious post, so the Lemming will now drop the 'editorial we.' Or, in this case, the editorial Lemming.
I'm making another change in schedule for this blog, less than a year since the last one:
- "Lemming Tracks: Change in Schedule"
(October 3, 2011)
Why This Change?I'm 60, and in pretty good health: apart from high blood pressure; diabetes; and a few other consequences of having survived this long.
I'm not complaining: particularly when I consider the alternative to having lived this long. But I also have to admit that I'm no longer a 40-year-old kid. I need sleep, regularly: and there are only so many hours in a day.
After taking a good look at my schedule, I decided that I can break out several days a week by cutting back on some of my routines. Which included the Monday and Wednesday posts for this blog.
Some fellows around my age might use those 'extra' days to go fishing, spend time kayaking on the Toulumne River, or meditate in a hammock. I've got some creative projects that have been collecting dust: for decades, in one case.
At the top of my to-do list is getting serious about comic strips. Maybe like the seven-panel thing I did in another blog:
Narcissus-X (February 11, 2011)
Or maybe something else.
