An Experiment in Time

I’ve noticed that over the last month or so, posts here have been rather sparse. I’m not sure if it’s a matter of too little time, too little to say, or a combination of the two.

But when I started this thing, I had resolved to try and average two a week, which I usually have done; until recently. Again, crowded schedule, empty brain, or somewhere in between.

So here’s the deal. At some future point I plan on time travel becoming a reality. Either we’ll invent it, or the Doctor will finally let us in on it. But either way, someone will figure it out. At that time, I will come back in time and fill these pages with some really amazing posts, so that readers will be amazed at how I can possibly find the time to do it all.

Of course, by the time you’ve read this, this future return to the past will already have happened. And so you will already have read all those posts. And you’ll be wondering what in the world I’m talking about. So maybe, I should also delete this post when I add the others, so no one will be the wise.

Now then, if you are reading this, it must mean that the time machine hasn’t been invented, or the Doctor is still keeping it all to himself, or somehow maybe I just got old and absent minded and forgot to come back and fill these pages with my brilliance. Kind of makes you think, doesn’t it? Where on the timeline are we, anyway?

Well, in the meantime, I guess I’ll just have to start working harder in this timeline, applying myself more faithfully to ensure that the two or three bored souls who stumble across this site have something at least mediocre to fill their time with.

To the future…

Well that is another 5 minutes I won't get back. :) Just kidding. I enjoy your posts and look forward to most of them. For 3 years I posted everyday, it got to me. I "allowed" myself to overcome whatever OCD to miss some days - that took some doing.

I appreciate you and your ministry. Hope to get to your area one day so I can shut you up and buy you a gigantic coffee. Again, just kidding. Hang in there and keep posting.

Brilliant, Scott. Absolutely brilliant.

Just this morning, I'd thought of posting about how hard it is to keep blogging five days a week, to come up with the topics, the thoughts, to write them down coherently (or, at times, to just write them down and let the reader wrestle them out), to just keep on. Now you write this and I have found my answer!

May the good Doctor (not Lloyd-Jones…he'd travel in a pulpit shaped device to be sure) be pleased to enlighten all of us how that funny blue police box works.

"I enjoy your posts and look forward to most of them." Most of them? Only most of them? Oh, Gregg, I'm wounded! :) Seriously, I'm looking forward to that giant coffee.

Kevin, I love the image of a Tardis in pulpit form. Maybe I should paint my pulpit blue. It's certainly big enough to travel in (which of course is immaterial since it would be "bigger on the inside.")
