On July 12th 2008 I hit "publish" for the first time. Since then I've hit that little orange button over five hundred times and in doing so unleashed my unique and quirky perceptive on the world on such varied subjects as horses, dogs, cats, sheep (and my disdain for all wooled creatures), to pop culture, relationships, personal anecdotes (note: anecdotes not antidote... who knew!) and everything and anything in between. While "Horse Crazed" might suggest a primary topic most of you have come to know that you're just as likely to find a rendition of "Night Moves", a story of how I was once blinded by a Caesar salad, and book review of Vampire Porn (no joke) as an article on horse color genetics, the ethics of breeding or my failures as a horseman (See: "Mounting: A Failure to Launch Story".)
I've loved writing Adventures of a Horse Crazed Mind... I loved it. Past tense. For nearly three years I've indulge my passion for writing and personal expression through blogging, not as a chore, out of obligation or for the gratification of having a readership (though it was appreciated), but because I felt an irrepressible desire to share and to share in a form that represented my creativity at its best. That urge to express remains. But my dedication to the art of sharing... to my own standards of quality has been seriously flagging these past few months to the point that I'd rather not publish at all than to continue publishing these half hearted efforts, schlocky (What! It's a word!) written updates or quick little didlees as I have been. In other words, I've put far to much time, effort, love, blood, sweat and tears (okay maybe no blood or sweat but tears for sure!) in to this freakin' blog to let it go to let it go to hell in a hand basket (I tried googling euphemisms for "going to hell" in an effort to get something with more umph than the above but by the time I figured out how to spell euphemism correctly enough that google could figure out what I was trying to say I'd lost all patience.)
So, is this good-bye? Kinda. I dont have the heart to shut this baby down. So this blog will continue to exist and I'll continue to post on it when or if I have something of importance to say and the time and patience to say it in a (remotely) eloquent fashion. Which wont be often. Or at all. We'll see. In the mean time I will continue to post random, poorly written and otherwise shitty blog posts over at The Schlock Blog- where even the name is schlock. I don't recommend you check it out.
