Soliloki

Prosaic soliloquies performed by a quixotic person

Here for Good

I knew the ukulele I bought back in July would turn out to be this way: Another fickle fixation of mine. It’s just like most of my past leisure pursuits that first started out with a lot of gusto and eventually lost their charm before they even had a good go at developing into something more constant. Before the uke, my previous blogs were victims of my fickle-ness, too. And in fact, I just dumped one of the old blogs today (oh dear Lord, didn’t it feel so liberating).

Well, talking about my blog (this particular one, of course), I’d not say that I’m giving Soliloki the boot too nor do I have any intention to do so (I’ll still keep in touch with my virtual journal of course, although, this is certainly not the fresh-post-daily kind of blog I intended to start off as in the first place). Actually, it was the hunch I sensed from the very beginning, that I felt this project was fated to be a victim of my own negligence and letdown. Even so, I carried on this mission with such eagerness and in good spirits that I declared to religiously post a new blog every single day, just to satisfy my jumbo appetite for sharing my thoughts with the masses. Too bad the buzz of blogging has rapidly diminished over time. Regretfully though, I owe a big part of this dwindling enthusiasm to my everlasting devotion to idleness and the critical deficiency of appealing--even remotely so--happenings in my life, and so has made me feel that thinking and writing about my life affair is such a massive taxing effort (albeit only writing about my thoughts). Besides, it’s not like I’ve any worth-writing topics to tell about, anyway.

Regardless of everything though, I do believe every cloud has a silver lining. So I’ve chosen to cash in on this episode for what it’s worth, because I know this event opens up a window to add a new post to Soliloki and generate interesting ideas for the following posts. I may well not be the shiniest penny in the moneybox but that does not mean I’m so dim-witted that I cannot recognize this opportunity. Anyhow, as usual, I’ll be sleeping through winter (so to say) for at least a few weeks before re-appearing on Soliloki along with some interesting posts I hope to dig up here and there.

Editorial side note: Uh-oh. I just realized that I’ve just maneouvred myself into doing easier-said-than-done task by stating that the subsequent posts would be interesting. Hm, maybe the silver lining of the cloud is not that silvery after all. Or perhaps, I’m kind of daft. Oh, well.
