I have not attempted to write anything for some time.  Writing on blogs is a funny thing.  I think I am growing more convinced it is an act of arrogance and vanity more than anything else.  We are not good enough writers by any means to be published, but still we think what we write is worth reading.  If our thoughts were any kind of coherent or we were any kind of writers we would be published many times over now.  So, i fluctuate.  I must be at a high point of Narcissism.
