Doldrums

Ah, the wind went out of our sails, and here we find ourselves drifting.

For any regular readers (if such exist) this blog hasn't become totally abandoned, like the Mary Celeste (or the Marie Celeste, if you prefer Conan Doyle's fictional version), but our speed has definitely reduced quite considerably.

I have taken on the NaNoWriMo challenge of writing a 50,000 word book in the month of November, which steals a lot of my writing time, and Bobby has been producing an updated version of his Okey-Dokey sequence, which will finally appear in five volumes.

We haven't had any offers from new contributors to liven this whole thing up, and with a few courses running even the general forum is quite sluggish right now, with people's attention on their course work.

But don't give up on us.

We still plan a new Maybe Quarterly #13, due out on the Winter Solstice.

Be Seeing You!

Thanks for the feedback Loki (although as a Trickster, or God of Lies, of course, I remain a little uncertain about anything you say). :-)

In spite of the Clustr map (bottom right) which does imply we get visitors from all over the planet...it is still hard to know how many are automated webcrawlers, or roaming 'live ones' simply looking for something else entirely, and passing right through.

It really cheers me up to know that we reach someone, at least. Occasionally I feel I am 'madly singing in the mountains.' (Not that there's anything wrong with that).

To paraphrase Leary (too lazy to research it) when asked how he survived solitary confinement, 'how could I get lonely when I had the company of the wittiest and most intelligent person on the planet?' A Zaphod Beeblebrox after my own heart.

Thank-you for reading... :-)

PS: I mostly come here myself for Bobby's art - it lightens my heart and makes me laugh. The kid's a genius IMHO.
