Time Will Tell

It's been over two months since I posted anything to this blog, and while I use this space to think through some of the gaming-related ideas going through my head, there are a few of you out there in inter-web land that visit this space and interact with me. To those that do, I apologize for my absence.

There has been a serious lack of regular gaming going on in my life, and that has a lot to do with my general mood and lack of posting. I'm getting back into the swing of things with an on-line game of Apocalypse World, my Dresden Files game is shrinking to just be me and my boys, I'm figuring out what to play with my regular face-to-face group, and I may be running some old school fantasy games at a recently opened FLGS. Things seem to be picking up just as we head into the holiday season, when life in the States seems to be at its most hectic.

So what have I been doing with my time? I've been looking inward, using the time for thought and introspection. Another birthday has come and gone, the boys are a year older and one more step closer to moving out of the house, and my wife grows more beautiful with each passing day. I'm looking to see where gaming fits into my life without taking it over completely. I'm looking at the purpose of this blog and whether it has any beneficial impact in the grand scheme of things.

Only time will tell. I promise to keep those of you that do stop by to read my meandering thoughts posted.

Follow Your Bliss,

  1. Seems we've all been on this wavelength lately.
    We'll figure it out.

  2. It helps to know that I'm not alone in this. Thanks.

  3. No, very much not. See my post not long ago about Balance.

  4. I read the post and comments. I guess what I meant to say, in my short-hand way, is: for me, I often feel isolated in my problems and issues. I feel like I'm the only one that runs into a brick wall at full speed. That feeds into a downward spiral of isolation, which I often fall into.

    When I hear that someone I know has faced similar challenges and is working through them, it gives me strength to not give up. I'm not saying that you or anybody else holds the key to this particular prison I've locked myself into. What I'm saying is, "If Daniel has faced something like this, and if he can work through it, day by day, then I should be able to dust myself off and start working on that lock."

    One of the reasons I started this blog was to connect with people. Your response and others who've commented on various posts here have helped me a great deal.

    I'm slowly learning the 'answer' is in me. I'm taking the time to get to know myself better, look in, listen, and be. I'll find the answer I'm looking for. Connecting with you, Rich and others gives me the confidence to keep looking.

    So, once again, thanks.

  5. I often wish you, Mick and myself lived in the sane city, cause we're all going through very similar situations at their core.

  6. Maybe it's time we set up a regular Skype thing, even if it's just to catch up and talk about what's going on. Our joint blog fell by the wayside again (I kinda miss it, imagining it was like our little clubhouse), so maybe a scheduled thing would help. Rich might be interested as well and he and I have chatted on Skype when our gaming group has bailed.

    Something to think about.
