Sunset on the blog

I’m not entirely sure what is the point of this blog, or indeed who is reading it.  Also, I am coming to the the conclusion that this virtual world contains too many disappointments, as I discovered on another blog that I have contributed a lot of work towards.  Once the virtual world starts adding to the complications of life, rather than providing entertainment or enlightenment, there’s little point in wasting more time on it.  Real life contains enough troubles without adding virtual problems to it!

I’ve left the other blog and I may just leave  this one for a while.  I’m feeling rather tired of it all.  So if you are reading it, whoever you are, thanks very much.  Here’s a nice sunset.

I may add to the blog again some time.  I might not.  Rabit Piligrimin has gone in search of a carrot.


About Gareth Thomas

After a mixed career as an aircraft technician, London fringe theatre playwright, Franciscan friar, and secondary school teacher, I find myself looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I like to listen to BBC Radio 4 and the wind in the pine trees. I am writing a comedy about a school in Benidorm. My favourite film of all time is "Jean de Florette". If I had my time again I would not have spent the early 1970s working for Special Branch.

    What about The Santiago Enigma? The main question still has not been answered and I’ve been told that it never will!
    May all your other dreams come true; God bless!
    Buen Camino,

    Dear Rabit,
    I’m very very sad you have left the blog. I hope it wasn’t for anything I said or did….. or didn’t do? But no, you explained to us why you left, and I don’t think I was to blame for not showing indignation that someone not in the loop should have talked to you in that way, as I have been away on holiday with my family. Now that I’m back I feel bereft on CP&S without your input. And no one makes us laugh anymore either!

    You have had a lot to put up with; I’ve often wondered how you could take so much hassle, work and suffering…… I certainly wouldn’t have been able to. Your Cross has been heavy indeed.

    I shall always be grateful to you for so much joy your articles, comments and jokes have given me. I have grown in my Faith thanks to you. Whether we meet again in cyberspace or not, please believe me that I shall keep you always in my prayers.

    In Jesus and Mary

    May I also express my sadness that you’ve left the blog.

    I hope you change your mind and come back.

    And I hope you keep this blog going too.

    I still feel terrible about getting hold of ‘the wrong end of the stick’ on DT’s blog, and saying those mean things about you – stuff based on ignorance, panic and confusion.

    For what it’s worth I think you’re a smashing guy.

    I’ve learned from you.

    Whatever you decide to do, God bless you!

    Thank you for your comments, Kathleen and Omvendt. Don’t worry, there’s no point in dwelling on these things. Like anything else in life when a number of people are involved in a project, there needs to be some generally agreed structure, which is what I had kept asking for from the start. Everyone firing off in all directions doing their own thing was never going to work, was it?

    I have far more than a blog to worry about! Once again I have to find some way of getting myself to Spain to start work in September and surviving until I get paid at the end of the month. Life provides more than enough challenges at the moment without exhausting myself with pointless arguments in a virtual world as well!

    Once again, thanks for your comments and take care!
