      Right! I remember reading that hilarious post. That’s why it sounded so familiar when my stepdaughter said it! 😀

    As 2020 drew to a close, I kept thinking, “You do realize years are an arbitrary measure, right?”

    My daughter sent me a meme about 2021. It said “If you think 2020 was bad, wait till it turns 21 and it can legally start drinking.” we laughed but now we are taking everything one day at a time, what a scary time it is. I hope you and your family are well. Keeping you and your husband in my prayers. Stay safe out there.

    Can I ask you a question?

        Did you mean to unfollow my blog? Sometimes WordPress unfollows for some reason.

        Either way, I don’t judge you.

          You’re right, WordPress has unfollowed me from various blogs over the years, including yours, in the past. But a day or two ago, I did unfollow your blog, because a poem you posted made me feel uncomfortable.

          It’s possible that my take on your poem was incorrect. My ability to understand poetry isn’t that great.

          Lately, I have been battling some things in my spiritual life. Not always sure if I’m getting it right, you know? I just want to please God 100%. Sometimes I am not totally sure how to do that.

            Well I’m not mad. I struggle with my own poetry. Is it any good? How does it really make people feel? Nobody says anything so I never know. This is part of the reason I almost completely stopped blogging. Nobody would say. Nobody was 100% honest.

            Would you please tell me which one it was?

            I apologize. I was hoping my poetry would be encouraging. A few people love it. But most just never say anything.

            I’ve been getting a suspicion for the last few months that my writing is not helping anyone. And I definitely don’t want that. This was my first real review of my writing. So thank you!

            Oh man. I hate being a critic!! And I honestly don’t know if I just took your poem wrong.

            For many years, I loved poetry and I wrote a lot of poetry. But after a bad head injury that happened when I was in my mid thirties, I lost my math skills and my poetry skills. Hmmm, I wonder if math and poetry are related?!

            It absolutely cannot because I hate math lol!!

            I’m puzzled by what triggered you in the poems… but I’m really going dig deeper into finding something else to blog about. The Eclectic Contrarian’s time seems to have been gone. I’m keeping it around and it’s doing nobody any good. So, I’m eventually going to get something else going. Just bear with me.

            I’m not asking you to. It greatly concerns me that someone would unfollow me because of something I’ve written.

            I feel socially awkward as it is. I try to be an encouragement and also tell people about the Lord.

            Please don’t feel judged. I’m just going through a lot of stuff right now. There have been a couple of times over the years where I unfollowed every single person that I was following. Because, yeah, I have issues.

            I know you’re going through a lot. I read you posts. I’m not mad at you! I just wish everyone would tell me how my writing is affecting them. Not that I try to please everyone. I just don’t know how good or bad it is unless someone says something.

            I consider you a pretty good friend on here. You tried to keep me around when I was completely down and out on the other blog. I really appreciate that! This blog isn’t going to stick around but it’s here while I brainstorm ideas..

            I know I’m a mess but I am here for you.

            Aww, thank you. I suspect that we are all a mess, but some of us are more aware of this fact than others.

            Here’s a poem I wrote, back when I was writing poetry:

            Too late, too late
            ain’t that my fate
            I tried in vain
            to stop the rain

            I should have learned
            how not to care
            that there were raindrops
            in my hair.

            I believe I was in my early twenties when I wrote that. Wow, almost fifty years ago!

            It’s actually really awesome!! And I encourage you to write more!

            I can’t even explain myself. I’m so awkward. But I cannot stay away nor stop writing. I really should…

            Thank you for the encouragement. However, ever since my last bad head injury, I haven’t been able to write poetry or do math like I used to.

            Maybe I need a few more neurofeedback treatments. Neurofeedback definitely helped my PTSD, and also my social awkwardness. You might want to give NFT a try. I don’t know where you live, but if it’s anywhere near Amarillo, Texas, Ryan Watson is the person to see for NFT!

            My battery is down to 6%. Gotta plug in the tablet and take our dogs out to enjoy the now 73 degree weather! It’s not typical for here this time of year. I wonder what’s coming next!
