It looks like next week will be quite busy for me. I have a ton of appointments. They are going to rob my mornings. I'm not looking forward to it, but at least I can anticipate it.

I always put undue stress on myself when I expect myself to generate a post every weekday. But if I explicitly "excuse" myself from writing for particular reasons, I somehow feel better about missing a few days. So I'm going to do that today: Next week, I likely will not have time to write effectively every day. If you don't see a new post each day next week, you know the reason.

Still, I am not tired at all. My inspiration level is as high as ever. I constantly get new ideas. Life is interesting and fresh. It's just that a whole crosscurrent of banal crap converged in one week; and I know it's going to keep me from writing.

There you have it. Thanks so much for reading my posts. And remember to always check the archives or--if you're feeling adventurous--try a word search. I always amuse myself by typing in certain concepts in the dialog. It reminds me how much stuff I've written about so many different subjects. It makes me proud, actually. I have a complete record about my beliefs on every issue that matters in my life. And it will last beyond my years!

Balthazar-It's astonishing your output and the constantly high quality. I can barely manage one post a month, let alone five, and everyone so well-written, informative and funny. It's hard to keep up with your prodigious capabilities, but I do sneak by every now and then and gobble up three or four posts at a time.

Thanks, Profound! I always love it when you stop by my blog. Readers like you remind me why I enjoy writing so much.

Sometimes I wonder whether I write too much. Some people have told me I write way too much for the average internet reader. They say: "More pictures! Less words!"

What is this, Kindergarten?

But the way I look at it, you can never say too much when you are speaking your mind. This blog is my personal testament. It is my opportunity to say: "This is what Balthazar Oesterhoudt believes about such-and-such." I spent so many years just observing life. Now's my chance to say all the things that have grown in me all these years.

I have a lot to say. My mind never stops working. And I want to remember what I think!

And then there are readers like you... the ones who don't mind spending 15 minutes on a post and understand what I wanted to say. I am so grateful for you!
