Sorry, haven’t got it in me today.

    As a recent proponent of the power of No, I’m proud to see this today. Good for you.

    “Some days are like breaking rocks” – Tim Hallinan. Pick up the hammer, Tim. Your commentary on Japan appreciated. There must be a reason I checked in on you today so I’m urging you to continue to speak. Many regards, Helen S.

    Ditto, ditto. I’ve been told that taking risks is a good thing, and you do this every time you write. This has been an awful weekend, so devastating and, again, a reminder of how vulnerable we are. Take your breather, Tim. I, too, laud you.

  4. Phil Hanson Says:

    Depressing, I know! But Tim’s been carrying all of us for a good long time, now, so maybe it wouldn’t be too much of a hardship for us to just suck it up and take up the slack. Just for today, though; if he doesn’t have things back on the rails by tomorrow, I’m calling for a boycott of this blog and revocation of his writer’s license.

  5. Glenn W Says:

    I’m with Helen: your commentary on the human condition, on writing, on the funny and the outrageous and the wonderful and the overwhelming and the tragic and the power and glory and devastation of the very nature we nurture and nurtures us, on a language to even speak about what has happened in Japan……all of it is important stuff that comes our way from you. Take a breather, yes, but know you are appreciated and motor on.

    I’ve tried calling again, but nobody’s answered. Should I yell louder?

    *bang* *bang* Hey, in there! Your door knocker just fell off!

    My friend Micheal (sic) Smotherman (see micael, your’e not the only one who spells it funny) tells this story: when he was a very young musician, his band went into the studio early one evening to cut a track. Well, it turns out the band sucked. For eleven hours they banged away hopelessly, never coming close to getting it. Finally at six in the morning they threw in the towel. As they came squinting out into the morning sun they stepped over a drunk who had been lying outside, apparently listening to the whole thing. He looked up in slurry disappointment and begged ‘aw come on fellas… don’t give up now!’
    This, Tim is my message to you.

    Hey you-I’ve been holding off commenting because there’s too much to say and yet nothing at all. But I wanted to at least drop in and say hi.

  10. Suzanna Says:

    Thinking of you, and hope you’re feeling better.

  11. Timothy Hallinan Says:

    Hi, everyone, and thanks. These have been very encouraging, not to say touching.

    But I’m through with the daily outing. No drama, no recriminations, especially since whatever went awry was my fault in the first place. The next blog will ‘splain everything.
