My Muse Has Returned

(I'm Back to Blogging.)

I've decided to come off hiatus.  But I doubt that anyone really cares.  It's not like I'm Ernest Hemingway.

I find writing difficult.  Why?  I'm a simpleton.  No kidding.  Poor old Smith is about as smart as a dolphin.  So I have to take a break from time to time.

I want to thank everybody for their support over the years.  I realize I've ruffled a few feathers along the way.  However, it's all water under the bridge.  Please forgive any past transgressions.

Anyway, so long for now.  And God bless you all.

  2. so surprised (supised?) to see you linked from Zero hedge, welcome back Jay

  3. So Smith, you were driven to write again, eh? Have you ever analysed your need to communicate this way? I sense you are lonely for intellectual companionship that you cannot get in your Korean-dominated everyday life. People who are idea-driven, who have messages they want to get across (like your religious beliefs) often cannot make themselves understood by the folks around them. It's like you're talking on a different wavelength that others in the meatspace cannot comprehend. So you write here, and flog the blog on Zero Hedge. You also have a masochistic streak, to take actions that invite abuse. Those attributes are both kinda gay (not that there's anything wrong with that) in the need for companionship, and Jesus-like with the invitation for vilification.

    I have analysed why I comment on people's blogs a lot. It's because I'm overwhelmed by my sense of "I'm a smart mofo, and I should let everybody else know." It's how I stoke my ego. I get a lot of human contact at work. Since you went on hiatus, I carried out my plan to move back to Australia, and am living in a great, NON-Soviet style flat with a fantastic view of the city , he river that runs through it, and the open water of Port Phillip Bay in the distance. But like you, most of the nurses, patients and other people I encounter can't talk about economics and politics at my level. So I prattle on blogs. At the same time, I basically don't like people all that much, not enough to let them get into my personal space on an extended basis. That's why I am proud that I was able to organise an international immigration on my own. I learned well from observing how my ex did the details of our moves from San Fran to Oz, and then to Vancouver. I'm not keen on having people in my grille consistently, which is why I don't write a blog.

    Anyway, Smith, best of luck. I find tortured souls fascinating, which is why I like working on psych wards. I've got a great lifestyle here as an on-call, freelance nurse signed up with a couple temp agencies here. I'm the medical equivalent to the shock troops that Stalin used to use as mobile response forces to rush and plug gaps in the line on the Eastern Front. When there's a vacancy, I'm skilled and flexible enough to step up and fill the role. I tend to choose psych assignments, and get to work at hospitals all over the region. I see so much crazy! It's so cool.

    1. It's great to have you back, Bukko. And I'm glad things are going well for you.

      I write this blog because I believe I have a duty as an evangelist to spread the word.

      I don't really think of myself as a tortured soul. I'm getting by and leading a somewhat productive life.

      I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

      God bless.


Thanks for stopping by. Smith.
