I have played. I have blogged. I have podcasted. I have done all those things and more. I have lived through the day and seen the shadow of night set its blanket over the horizon. But I have seen the light. I know that a new dawn lies ahead of the darkness of night. And it will rise again.
He who has never fallen, will never know the meaning of standing.
Okay, cut the romantic prose, and get to the point you may be asking. What the hell is he talking about?
I'm talking about this blog. About the game. And mostly about continuity.
I've been blogging about gaming and EVE Online for over 4 years now. At first it was a minimal; a post a month. Then I got more into it. Then it became a habit. Then a passion.
But when you pour your heart and soul into something you eventually run the risk of forgetting what it is you were doing in the first place, and why you were doing it. And the it all comes crashing down.
Then they start to point the finger at you. They start to say that you're a quitter. That it's the beginning of the end.
Then you say the hell with'em! You raise a knee and push your self back up, and dust your self up. You look around. See what you've accomplished and get back on the train.
You may think I'm writing this to explain myself. To justify my absence. I'm not. I'm simply standing back up, dusting myself, and getting back on the train.
Life's not planned. It throws curved balls at you. Some you're able to avoid, some not. But you go on. You persevere.
Blogging is similar.
The end is the beginning of something new... ...it's good to be back!
