The problem I'm having is not that I can't write. I can't fake it, like phoning a post in, because it fails. The last post I wrote wasn't heartfelt. I tried to make a joke out of it. Instead, it comes across as mean-spirited. Having experienced hallucinations, I have the utmost respect for schizophrenics, especially those with deep delusions and see and hear things. It takes enormous strength for someone with that or a similar condition to keep their feet on the ground. What I wrote was cheap and sloppy. As I do with other posts, I read anything I write as if I were correcting students' papers. I was never harsh with them, but I would never allow them to pass in their second best I will be changing the title and the post.
If I can't write something that expresses the truth in fact and in the treatment I give it, I'd rather not write. So please excuse my lack of posting. I can't continue phoning it in. I have so many true stories that are funny by their very nature. If I don't feel the lightness in it, it will fall like a meteor, all similar stories fated to extinction of the dinosaurs. Who wants to read something that was phoned in?
