The spam dam broke and the hordes set up residency (1400+ in comment spam). Can’t get into the comments-destroys my browser-so in the slim chance you were posting a comment, sorry I probably won’t get to it.

Anyway, that’s the spark but the fuel was there for awhile-I’m shutting the blog down. Trying to prune back on various Internet presences, and the tapiring of posting was probably a sign, too. I also need to put my money where my mouth is, dig in deep to my own writing. This is a presque isle from “me”, but it’s not the mainland. It’s not even an isthmus. So I’ll probably leave the posts up here since I’m paid up for awhile, but after that I’ll shut it down. No worries. It was a good run.
