I think I might start blogging again. It’s been a long time since I regularly wrote anything other than training log updates, and even those moved to facebook a while ago.
I have moved on (mostly) from political/current events. The older I get, the less I care, and the more I realize how little it matters to me. I’ve posted about this before, but I’ll say it again: When part of such a small minority political philosophy, you can lose yourself in frustration. The vast majority of people fundamentally believe they get their rights from the government in the form of permission; that there is no such thing as a right based simply on a persons’ humanity. That isn’t changing in my lifetime, so instead of getting worked up about which R or D is going to get elected, I refocused on myself, my family, my friends, and my clients. Whatever the government does, I can work around it; typically it’s just a financial cost, so I just work a little harder. (I feel bad for people who can’t do that – where a 20%+ increase in their ‘affordable’ health care insurance means something in their monthly budget.)
Anyway, I’m done with frustrations. Other than the Ravens.
So if I actually stick with this, I’ll be posting about food, wine, lifting, with a little Economics, and probably some other random stuff tossed in for good measure.
