Murder, she wrote.

Long overdue, and hence I will keep it brief.

Two thoughts. One from a friend, "Most people aren't really happy with where they are, but aren't really unhappy enough to do anything about it. That's a bad place to be in. Don't fall into the trap"

Second from Gordon Ramsey on Hell's Kitchen, where he asks a team to select who to 'nominate for elimination' and he gives a very interesting piece of advice to the team - to get rid of the dead weight. "It doesn't matter whether you like or hate them", he says, "what is important that you get rid of stuff which is dead weight on the team."

What a brilliant thought. Usually it's the most difficult thing to do, because of the sheer number of things we carry with us as albatrosses around our neck: nostalgia, relationships, things, clothes which do not fit anymore, old pencil boxes, broken pens. It is hard to get rid of things we're sentimentally attached to, but sometimes you're left with little choice.

This blog has become just that: dead weight. I keep thinking I will write here more, but this space and the mood I've set here just prevents me from doing anything worthwhile with it. And I hardly see any point dragging it on forever.
It doesn't mean I have stopped writing, but I doubt if I'd be writing here anymore.

I guess that's that.

So have you killed a blog today?

Really wish you wouldn't.

If this doesn't take up your space, or your time, it cant qualify as dead-weight.

Hi! We thing the same way when it comes to things we drag behind us which we no longer need. I liked reading your text. I looked around, and I agree with Shishir, who said in his comment: "It's time you started writing a book."

While on a short, random sweep of Blogville, I encountered you here. I have not yet read everything (and, after all, there is quite a lot to read), but love what I have read. Hope you are well and you have perhaps found your muse elsewhere. You have much to say and your own unique way of saying it. Best of luck, Rob
