There’s been little blogging because I was going through the blog’s archives. I’ve gotten about ten days past Fukushima. Man, that time was crazy! I was exhausted for two weeks solid.
And those posts and comments had something that’s gradually disappearing from here. Fun. Humor, jokes, wordplay. I was probably as tired then as I am now with the worsened tinnitus. But my mood was better. So was the writing.
I don’t think there’s any doubt that I’ve run off folks who might have stayed. Not progressives, of course; they were never going to be able to stand my ideas. But other readers came here when the tone was lighter and I played at being funny and sometimes succeeded. Why wouldn’t they go?
This blog wasn’t intended to be endless venting and ranting. I’d love to get a little joy back in it. But I’ll need some in my life first, and this damn tinnitus doesn’t make it easy. I don’t know what to do, really. Right now I don’t even feel like keeping up with events, much less analyzing them.

You know I fly a lot. Too much lately – Eight 3-hr flights in 15 days! Even in first class I became real tired of it.
Anyway, I use Bose Noise Canceling headphone when I fly. They won’t stop the tinnitus, but hook up some pleasant white noise sounds, classical music, classic rock, whatever, and the world of sound will become easier. Cost is $300-400 which is steep yet may provide some release; and when watching a movie at home, *so much better* using the headsets than being in the best of theaters – so much more details to hear and enjoy.
I haven’t commented much on the past month’s posts – did I mention 8 flight segments? Enjoyed the posts very much. I hope you find the strength/encouragement to keep ’em coming.
Thank you. So I take it these headphones are pretty comfortable?
I’m sure many people from the Fukushima days have moved on, but this place is still one of my daily reads.
Glad to have you here.
Since this happens to be my peculiar malady, too, I can recognize the symptoms when someone blames himself for everything that happens.
The leveling out of posting and commenting since Fukushima is not your fault.
It’s my fault.
Insty’s posting some pretty sprightly one liners these days (the first one’s about NYC):
So, go snorkeling in the tropics for about a week then you too can get your groove back.
It’s looking like we may go to Orlando in Sept., but haven’t decided on Disneyworld or Universal Studios.
