The time has come… 9/28/2007

..the walrus said, to talk of many things,

of shoes, and ships, and sealing wax,

of cabbages and kings;

And why the sea is boiling hot;

And whether pigs have wings.

From when I started blogging in 2004, to what is currently Hunting the Snark, I have had fun. This blog was sometimes an escape, a place to vent, to put down my memories and stories and experience. To say this blog changed my life would be putting it mildly. But, alas, all things must come to an end, much as we may wish otherwise.

I have stopped and started in here a few times. I left it quiet for some weeks on a couple of intervals. And more and more I have found that I no longer have the time, energy or inclination to maintain this blog. This may change in the future. I may come back, with a motorcycle post or two, or something funny I may have heard or remembered. There are no guarantees on that. But the likelihood of there being regular updates in here would be probably less than zero. I’ll keep the space going, as much as for the record as anything else.

I made some friends through this blog, met many interesting people, both online and in real life. For those who came along for the ride, I thank you. Some others were people I perhaps wished I hadn’t met, but on the whole, it’s mostly been good. I’ve always felt that you can learn something from everyone, even if it’s how not to do something.

Motorcycles will still be a part of me, but my active participation in motorcycle forums will be no more. More time riding and less time talking, would probably be the best way to put it. If anyone feels the need to speak to me on a personal basis, you can send e-mail to desmosedici (at) gmail (dot) com.

As I take my leave of this place, I wish all of you happy trails and safe journeys, and that you may always get what you wish for. Be careful though, because sometimes, you just may get it.
