My grandfather's home was adorned with religious pictures, very large ones. I recall the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the one of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The crucifix was in every room of the house. Above the entrance from the dining room to the living room was a picture of The End Of The Trail. I never asked Grandpa why it was there. I wish I had. I wonder if it had any significance. I'll never know.
I've been doing a lot of thinking about my blog this last month. It started four years ago this October as a hobby, an alternative to doing crossword puzzles. I'd write three blogs a day, mostly opinion pieces. In 2012 I was doing fifteen to twenty on a daily basis, spending eight hours a day of my life putting articles, mostly conservative ones, on the site. I'd write opinion pieces, sometimes thinking I'm the next Joseph Pulitzer. Underconfidence has never been a problem for me.
With all this writing I had, in essence, become very selfish.I've decided I wanted to spend the mornings with Lizzie, drinking coffee and discussing the days events. I want to plan our lives and the future. I want to spend as much time as possible with my best friend so I've decided to terminate my blog; doing it with happiness and satisfaction. For me this is my personal end of the trail.
My sincere thanks to everyone who came to my site. You gave me your most important commodity. You gave me your time.
God bless you all.
