I almost got it – the knife to the gut, the pale cold hand of no-more-hereafter.  

BUT I survived, and here I am to blog about it!

That’s right: I survived the bloggers’ curse, that slithering creature which creeps up on bloggers near and far, about three months into any blogging effort, and stifles the best intentions with such evil whispers as:

– “other commitments”

– “no one reads this blog anyway”

– “I’ve got nothing to say”

Hah!  It almost had me right where it wanted me, turning my face away from computers everywhere for fear of contracting the next stage of the curse: “bloggers guilt.”  That would  have been the final nail in the coffin.

Well, a kick up the backside from an anonymous friend was the panacea.  So, here I am, back on the blog waves, and my apologies for being a slacker.  I can’t promise it won’t happen again, but I’ll be on my guard against the sly whispers that hound bloggers everywhere from now on.
