I’m titling this blog, The Never Ending Story, and for those of you old enough, you’ll remember the movie and/or the book. When I retired last fall, I felt relieved. My motivation was zero. It’s difficult for me to do anything without a purpose and I lost my purpose. I was still highly motivated to be a good admin, but actually participating wasn’t there for me. The first couple months I don’t think I read much of anything in the Assembly. No motivation, meant no interest. However, recently I have been reading and wanting to contribute. As a “member” I can read Assembly posts, but can’t post there so I don’t and won’t. The Narnia episode was truly the first time I was tempted to read something I didn’t have classification to read. I didn’t but I was very curious to understand people’s thoughts around the subject. That so many of you reversed DD’s decision still piques my interest. So I’ve felt the tug to return as an RA member. Not a pull, a tug. But it’s not all the way there for me. Channeling my inner Brokeback, I wish I knew how to quit you, TNP. But I haven’t found a way yet. And so the story continues. From time to time, I’ll post here to talk myself into or out of making a return to active participation in the region beside admin duties. P.S. Just for SillyString - "members" can post their own blogs.
