Laborare est Orare

GOD! WHAT A long week I've had. In the office late most of the week, and an extra day on top of that. This, Loyal Rant Readers, is why I have not posted much at all this week. I've been tired -- I am tired -- and when I am tired I don't do my best work; and since I don't like posting on the blog unless I write posts you'll enjoy AND of which I am proud, that's why there's been the verbal silence.

But I have to admit that I like the long hours, even though I find it taxing in every sense of the word. It's a difficult thing to explain, but if you've ever had one of those days where you come home from work feeling worn out and exhausted but good, like you've accomplished something, you'll know what I mean. They're days when I feel a kinship, I guess, with my ancestors -- who toiled in the fields and the shops and the mines and later, much later, in the offices. I can stand and look them in the eyes and say, "Even though I too often fail to show it, I have not forgotten what you have done for me."

But anyway -- back to work! Well, back to blogging, anyway. I will try to post more frequently in future. Oh, and if you've gotten this far, dig this site. It's weird and creepy yet strangely, one gets drawn into it.
