Hello and Farewell,
I am writing this post to announce that I am officially retiring Gasping for Ayer at the end of this month. The site will be coming down.
Honestly, it has amazed me how this blog has been received. Though I haven’t posted in months, I am still getting hundreds of visitors a day. That is odd with material that is time sensitive in nature.
It has been obvious that my posts have declined in frequency as my passion for local politics has waned. I am at a point in my life, where I think time is too precious for me to squander it broadcasting my views on community issues. I wish to focus my attention on health and fitness, family and friends.
Simply stated, politics is a cruel mistress and regardless of your political stripes, she will leaving you feeling empty. Losses hurt and Wins are fleeting. My desire is to be a positive influence for change.
I truly appreciate those who have read my work over the years. If you wish to continue reading my essays, and are willing to listen to me rave about Almond Butter and Barbells, feel free to visit my other blog, Defiant Wellness. There you will find no politics, just encouraging posts about staying alive and vibrant in spite of one’s chronological age. Yeah, I am still opinionated, but it’s positive.
Thanks and God Bless you, your family and the quirky Town of Ayer – a funny little place I call home.
