Hibernation


Due to health and other reasons, A Doubtful Egg is going into hibernation for a while. Whether that "a while" will be a few weeks, or forever, remains to be seen. Thanks to everyone who came to visit or left a comment here.

All the best. Thanks for your interesting photos, and for the music I discovered visiting you.

Hope everything is ok. I really enjoy your site so hoping you take a 'quick nap' rather than an extended snooze :)

Ah, no. Winter's gone! Thus, no chance for hibernation.
Or?
My good thoughts are with you and those you love.
Get well, D.E.. Soon.
As you wrote: Spring is in the air ...

Not forever, I hope. I (and others) would miss your thoughts, words, photos, and musical discoveries. Play it by ear, and see how you feel down the line a bit. In the meantime, take care.

Thanks, everybody, for the comments. I'm glad you liked my amusements.
As I've mentioned before, I have chronic fatigue syndrome, which, simply put, means that my functioning week is a lot shorter than the average person's. This condition may disappear in time, or it may not. It makes it imperative that in my small "windows of energy" I focus on work that may lead to some form of employment (or payment) if my condition clears up. The rest of the time, I watch an awful lot of films, many of them questionable and from the 60s and 70s (Hammer Studios, I'm looking in your direction specifically)(although I did watch Last Year in Marienbad during the week, which I thought was stunning and highly recommended if you like your Art very serious).
I have also begin to avoid reading or watching political news of any kind; I simply don't have the energy for the rage and depression that it induces, which is disappointing.
It's frustrating that there's so much beauty and creativity in the world and I simply don't have the strength to seek it out, but at least I have forests, beaches, our ever-boisterous hound, and a supportive and understanding partner and family. Sometimes it's best to be thankful for what you have.
Perhaps in a few months the mood may take me again. If so, you're always welcome here in Chez Doubtful, but for now the shutters are down and the tables and chairs are stacked up.
All the best to you all,
Jonathan.
