Slipping out the back door

Just for little while, I promise I'll be back.

I've said it before, but not enough to do it justice.  I am immensely appreciative of this community that I have found, of this blog, of fellow bloggers and of those of you who have been reading.  And I am even more grateful to those of you who have commented or reached out to me.  I can't imagine ever wanting to leave this community, or why anyone would.  

That being said, I am going to take a short break from actively posting on my blog.  This is not a cry for attention, and there is nothing wrong in my life.  I love my life.  It's just that life, such as it is, has a way of shifting your priorities around.  For the time being, my focus will be on home first, and work second.  

I don't know how long I will be away.  Something in the back of my mind tells me that after a couple of days I will start to get twitchy, just like when I decided to quit cold turkey on Grindr.  (That only lasted for 5 days btw, if anyone was curious.)  But it could be as long as a few weeks.  I don't know.  

I know that I won't be able to resist reading what my favorite bloggers have to say.  I probably won't be able to resist commenting either.  Since this blog is life therapy for me, if anything major happens in my life I will be here to write about it.  I love getting emails/comments/texts, so feel free to send them my way.

I love you guys (and chicks!) who stop by to read my blog.  Thank you!

 I couldn't post something without a picture!


  1. Since I look forward to reading your blog first thing every morning, I'll for one will miss you.

    But I understand the need for a break and I understand full well the pressures of blogging.

    Be well my friend.

  2. While I enjoy your writing, I completely understand the need for a break from time to time. So enjoy your break however long it lasts. We'll be here when you get back.

  3. Jay -
    You've got some important shit to do, so go do it! We'll be here when you get back. Hopefully, you'll be back soon, but don't worry about us. We'll be here!


  4. Jay, Just checked in to see if you might be back. Take care and don't forget getting the hepetatis B shot. I didn't think I would get hep B either but I did and it could have been avoided so easily if I handn't been so naive. hal

  5. Don't be gone for too long! I've been looking at my blog counter, and notice I get a lot of traffic referred from YOUR blog, so, your absence affects my traffic!

    Does that sound selfish? Wattaya expect, I'm a guy.

  6. Hey Jay!
    Ok. Break time is over, dude! I hope to see you checking into your blog soon. I also hope things are going well.....
