Concentration deficiency

You may have noticed that I’ve not written a new post for a few weeks. It’s likely I’ll not do so for another few weeks. Preparing material that finds its way into this blog requires not only time, but the mental leisure for tossing thoughts around, testing the emerging concepts (arguing with myself), then wrestling with verbal expressions clear enough to communicate.

What I have rediscovered lately is the fragility of that process. For me, at any rate, it is not given to rushing nor to cheating the all-important musing stage.

My wife and I have been knee deep in the frenetic work of preparing our home of nineteen years for sale and readying our new condominium for moving in. There are still a few weeks before life settles down to its former pace. I have had to accept, graciously most of the time, the resulting impediment to clear thinking and comprehensible writing.

Now which ones of these boxes go to charity and which to the new closet?

I’ll be back.

About John Bruce Carver

I am a U. S. citizen living in Atlanta, Georgia, having grown up in Chattanooga, Tennessee, graduating from Chattanooga High School. I served in the Electronic Security Command of the U. S. Air Force before receiving a B.S. degree in business/economics and an M.Ed. in educational psychology, both at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I then completed a Ph.D. in clinical (and research) psychology at Emory University. I have two daughters and three granddaughters. An ardent international traveller, I have been in over 70 countries for business and pleasure. My reading, other than novels, tends to be in history, philosophy, government, and light science. I identify philosophically as a secular humanist, in complete awe of the universe including my fellows and myself. I am married to my best friend, Miriam, formerly of the United Kingdom and Canada.
