Blog Break: Stress Has Me on The Ropes

I'm not going to be posting anything for a while.

I've had this blog for nearly 20 years, through thick and thin times. But I really hit the wall this time.

What's happening in our country - the ongoing coup attempt and no accountability for traitors - is hitting me hard. I see democracy slip-sliding away every day.

To add to that my PTSD is flared up. It happens once a year - my anniversary date of being ambushed in Cambodia (while serving in the Army in 1970) and watching my best friend die next to me is here.

Some years are better than others. This is a bad one.

Needless to say, it's been difficult writing lately.

I've been doing my readers an injustice by turning out increasingly negative posts in recent days. The fact that I'm under a dark cloud tells me I need time to mentally heal.

Thank you for reading this. I'll be back again someday. I'm just not sure when.
