57 channels and nothin' on....
If you're my age you may just remember a song by Bruce Springsteen way back in the early 90s with the same title as this blog post. More or less, this phrase happens to be an apt description of my life at the moment.
Things happening (or not happening) all over the place...but nothing really of import taking place in my life.
I guess that explains why I haven't been blogging again for the longest time. Just the same old things to blog about, day in, day out, month in, month out, year in and year out.
And coincidentally, I now know what Bruce Springsteen was talking about in that song of his. Have you checked out SkyCable lately? How may times have you found yourself flipping aimlessly through what seems to be hundreds of channels, and not be able to find anything worth watching? It's been happening to me more often than not lately. Either I just developed a case of adult attention-deficit disorder or the quality of cable TV programming has gone down the drain. I guess I must have watched more than my fair share of TV, since to me cable appears to be nothing more than a vast collection of reruns. Come to think of it, my life feels like an old rerun as well. Haven't I been on this path before?
I dunno. Maybe I'm finally getting a real mid-life crisis.
Maybe I'll get the urge to update this blog more often in the next few days. I've been blogging for the past three years now, it would seem to be a real shame if I just threw this thing down the drain.
Thanks to the people who keep visiting even though I haven't updated.
And in case I don't get another chance to post again, advance happy 11th birthday to my son Aaron, who'll be celebrating his natal day tomorrow. Eleven years. My my. Time really does fly.
Whether you're having fun or not.
