I want to Thank All My Readers in Advance for their Comments. The comments for this blog Do Not come to my email so it may take weeks for me to read and acknowledge them. I programmed the Comments to stay in the Que because my life is so hectic and busy with the job there is no way that I can respond to anything in a timely manner. Working in a museum the Holidays are HellaDays.
The museum gets thousands of visitors. It is a blackout period for the staff so almost No days off. Yes Christmas time might be celebration for some but as for me I’m glad it’s all over. I’m not a Christmas person. I don’t celebrate and people tend to be extremely nasty and rude during that time. It’s like working in a Pressure Cooker. Headaches, Stomach aches, pain = Christmas. The last time I went to the doctor my blood pressure had rocketed skyward. Why? End year Holidays.
Ask anyone who works in a Customer Service position. Actually I’m sure the people in retail, department stores, transit and other fields experience that same Christmas dread. Hopefully this will be my last Holiday season and next season I will be retired. Then I can truly ignore Christmas completely and my life won’t be so screwed up. For me Christmas is like being thrown into a fiery pit with no escape.
The only thing end of year holidays due for me is to raise my blood pressure from all the stress! December is an entire month of making believe you’re happy when you’re not. Relief comes after Jan. 7th!
This blog and my writing in general is a Love/Hate relationship. How people make time to write books I’ll never understand. Any book that I publish will most likely be a Photography book. Many times I just want to dump both the blog and the writing. That’s part of the reason I stopped and focused more on my photography. Writing can be stressful and cathartic all at the same time. In the future I’ll be taking more time away from this blog. Sometimes you just need to walk away from things when they become too difficult.
Honestly I get more personal pleasure from photography than writing. No matter how tired and exhausted work leaves me photography always rejuvenates me whereas writing requires a lot of planning and thought. With a job like mine my brain is mush by the end of the workweek and I’m so tired and physically exhausted all I want to do is sleep. Basically I just want to veg out and watch YouTube or Netflix. In fact I spend most weekends in bed especially now with this brutal freezing winter cold.
Eventually I do read all the comments. However I do want you to know that I appreciate your feedback. Sorry for the Universal response. I’d like to give each and every comment a personal response but at this time it is impossible. Thanks for understanding.
