Farewell Donkey Wednesday

First, a donkey story from the Jamaica Gleaner.

Second.  Hey, SixApart!  Cee-Lo and I have a message for you:

 
Lately I've been thinking that maybe I'm over the internet.  I rarely feel the need to create a real blog post– with sentences and thoughts and stuff.  Even Tumblr (which is more like hitting ping pong balls at the internet and seeing if anybody hits one back) has lost a bit of its luster.  I have been passing through a long valley of depression and I think that may be part of it, too.  I had even started a post about how I've reached the end of the internet and had nothing more to contribute. 

Even though I was ready to pull the plug on myself, I do not feel like being euthanized by SixApart. I do not go gentle into that good night.

Until I decide where I shall go I have staked out my moniker on all the free sites. Please friend me up.

I'm really rather flummoxed. Where to move my stuff?  Where to post things?  What about my hundreds of music files?  And what about the donkeys???

I just don't know.

My input to Vox has dwindled to nothing lately but I have still enjoyed dropping by the neighborhood page and catching up on you guys and your hijinx.  I hope to see you all around the nets.

Here's some new B&S.

    what Cee Lo said. when you first posted it here, who knew it was going to be *this* relevant.I know what you mean about blogging fatigue. I've gone through long spells and short spells. the good thing about VOX is even if I wasn't writing I could comment in others' posts and participate.in re your music files: the indispensable Ross has made available to us a nifty bit of programming that simply and in my experience painlessly can locate your music files and import them back to your computer. or you could export to TypePad which brings your music files (WP does not, unless you $$$ for a space upgrade). caveat: my music files made it to TP but not as a library (neither did my pics). they are both in the posts where they were used.last and not least ((( hugs ))) to you. you lost your sister earlier this year and that has to be devastating. take tender care of yourself wherever you are

    Calliope 8 was a very good time. I got all nostalgic going through the posts and comments.

    don't be altogether disappearing.bookmark the diaspora group in wp, then you can always find us.or better, set up your neighborhood, even if you won't be posting.and then just follow your inclinations.sounds as if they have the fix for your music files.(YAY for Ross)The donkeys!Save the donkeys!!!(What kind of a rescue would it be if we lost the donkeys?)

    Even though I was ready to pull the plug on myself, I do not feel like being euthanized by SixApartOMG Woman, I couldn't have expressed that sentiment any better.
