And suddenly it's September. Sorry friends, I realized that the last Musings were posted on July 31. I'm still here, but have taken a bit of a break from the blog. Not to fear, craft beer, whiskey, and cigars are still being enjoyed, frequently. I even managed to shoot a couple of IDPA matches in August. I just happen to be enjoying living life more than writing about it, for the time being anyway.

Life changes abound. Our son has graduated from college, and is working and living on his own. Colleen and I are enjoying the chance to live a bit more "on a whim." Sometimes that means an unplanned trip. Sometimes it just means more time spent doing nothing. And not thinking about writing while I'm doing it is a refreshing break.

This isn't a "blog closed" announcement. Consider it a hiatus.


  1. That's all good. We'll be around when you get back!

  2. As a compulsive writer, even I've taken breaks from blogging that have lasted for months.

    Blogging isn't a job, and once a person feels they must post because they have to keep posting, it's a good time to take a break.

  3. Hey, I know how it works. I used to tweet and post all the time. Now, not so much. Enjoy.

    1. It's all cyclical I guess. It seems right now my most active social media activity is Instagram, and involves cigars.
