I must descrease that he might increase

And my blog must decrease that I might increase.

I’ll be actively non-blogging (or passively de-blogging) for an unspecified period of time. This is part of a more basic withdrawal from the Internet (with its Scylla of porn and Charybdis of trivialities). My blog is one of the main reasons I use the Internet, so if I avoid blogging I have that much less reason to waste time online. There’s just too much reading and sleeping — and way too much prayer — that I’ve been neglecting offline.

I’ll also admit it: I feel more secure, “more better,” when I’m connected. But that dependence bothers me, so I’m fighting back. The digital monkey must get off my back.

Okay, I’ve spoken my peace. Go on now, you can laugh. I know, I know, this is a silly, drastic Luddite reflex of cutting of my nose to spite my face. Be that as it may, it’s one way I can get a grip on my life, or maybe a get a grip off my life, so I’m for it.

Prayers and comments are welcome as always. I’ll see you.
