A brief conversation I had on twitter today with Greg over at the Plaschke, thy Sweater is Argyle blog made me think of the song. I hadn't taken the time to post the last couple of days, let alone sit in front of a computer at all.
Greg had inquired about a card that he had sent me, just wanting to make sure it had arrived safely. I replied that the card did indeed arrive at the old homestead, and this is my apology for not letting him know timely. My last tweet was of course my usual self-deprecating humor, which contained the following...
"I tend to forget that twitter is a means of communication..LOL"I use twitter for so much information gathering (sports, sports cards, etc.), that I forget sometimes that I can actually use it to communicate directly with someone, even if it is for something as simple as confirming that I received a package. Out of touch would be appropriate here as well.
In case you were wondering what Greg graciously sent my way, wait no further.
I have kind of felt out of touch with the blog lately, trying to figure out what I want to do, and how I want to do it. Missing all of last week, and then the past two evenings, didn't bother me as much as it would have in the past, and that has me a bit worried. I would say that it's not collecting that has me puzzled (tomorrow's post is evidence of that), it's writing about collecting that hasn't excited me over the past couple of weeks (or maybe months).
It may be that I'm in an extended funk, which I'm sure one or two people out there may know something about. Maybe the life span of the blog is winding down, which would coincide with the life span of other interests that I've had over the past 10-15 years. I'm hoping that the former is true rather than the latter.
Whatever it is, Out of Touch is a very appropriate sentiment for how I've felt lately, and hopefully I'll be able to snap out of it and return to my self-deprecating hobby loving ways. Believe me, I'm going to try...
Greg, thank you for the card, it is very much appreciated. I hope you're enjoying the Getzlaf!!
So you all don't have to go running off to find the Out of Touch video, I included it for you here, just in case. Sorry about the leopard suit and cowboy boots....hey, it was the 80's!!
Thanks for reading, Robert
