Update?


Wow, it's been a long time since I made a post. So here's a pic of me sporting up some wicked sunglasses to liven up this page.

I should probably give a little update to the state of affairs in the life of this obscure blogger. In short, as an old late night radio host in Atlanta used to say, "Keep on truckin'". That's pretty much the state of affairs. It's hard living in a place far removed from all one's important friends and family and working at a workplace where everyone gets along great, but no one often gets together outside of work. It sometimes amazes me how isolated our lives are and how easy it is to get swept away in the bubble of our own life experience without reaching out to others. The endless process of reaching out and trying to make connections can be a trying and tiring business that leaves one even more isolated at the end of the day when the realization that one's efforts have been in vain hits. So we move on, "keep on truckin'" and try to find comfort or happiness in the simple mindless distractions of media, internet, and video games. As for me, I take a lot of trips across the state to see friends, get a good dose of socializing, and get my dancing fix. But taking trips a couple times a month only goes so far in terms of satisfying the need and desire for engaging and enriching friendships. Too bad there's not a decent social dancing scene in this city.

Overall though, life for me could be a lot worse and for that reason I'm thankful of everything that IS going right. I have a great job, the friends, family, and fiancee I have are wonderful even if I don't see them often, and I'm in good health.

But alas, I don't think I'm ever going to get my France pictures posted and hosted online. Sorry. Time just isn't kind.

You could always refer them to your fiancee's blog...maybe she has the time to put up some pictures?
