Yes, as a matter of fact, I did unfriend you.

I'm not one of these people that "cleans out" their list of Facebook friends from time to time. Even though I'm an atheist and a Democrat, I have many friend that are God fearing and even a few Republicans. Differences of opinion or constructive debate are not enough to get on my bad side. But, from time to time we run onto a person that just has a knack for finding the cloud for every silver lining. You don't dislike them, hell, you don't really disagree with them, you totally understand why they're so miserable, their attitude just SUCKS! So, I just sort of threw this together.

People often ask me why I don't write more. The truth is that I write a lot. I just don't post or publish very much. Writing as a form of creative expression requires a degree of physical participation from the observer that is not inherently required in other mediums. The observer is not afforded the ease of casual observance, or the experience of taste, touch, and smell in order to form an opinion on what they've observed. While a painting, sculpture, well prepared meal or lovely fragrance can be more easily done, those who wish to critique the written word are required the action of reading, often a tedious action at that. Many are required to search for reading glasses and still must face the need for time and space, free of distraction. The writer is really asking a lot from his audience, and he or she are thus required to give a lot in return. How can I paint a portrait of words? How can I assemble words in a manner that will reward the reader with the ability to touch, feel, smell and taste the very experience I write about? It's a rather tall order if taken seriously. At best I always hope that I can at least provide the reader with something to think about, something to ponder, hopefully provoking them to revisit and explore a previously held idea, possibly updating their views in a manner that brings them greater peace and joy.
