Blogs and Depression

The days are shortening, and I'm starting to feel it.  Cottage life has been fantastic this year (beginning of May!), but it's coming to and end.  The most important thing to fight depression (other than my necessary drugs) is to have a sense of accomplishment.  I don't know why, but my blog doesn't do that. I get no feedback, and certainly no money.  It's more of a destructive compulsion.

So, as I go into this crisis, I'll abandon the blog for a time.  Naturally, an interesting earthquake should boost the serotonin.  :)

I like your blog. Well, not every post, of course. But it's overall fairly good. I even commented once or twice on it.

So your "destructive compulsion" is a little bit useful. But what you want to accomplish with your blog?

That's the point, isn't it? Oracle isn't paying me, and I really think I've said everything inside me.

I've intended to comment on your blog for many years but regrettably never have. I was hooked when I found your comments on the 1946 earthquake and leda clay liquification in Cornwall.
I was already interested in leda clay but you ended up getting me hooked on earthquakes and fault lines, particularly in Ontario.
Never underestimate what your impact on readers has been.

One of the problems with trying to comment on your blog is the "proving your not a robot" section. The words are so run together that you can misspell them very easily. It also does not say to leave a space or insert a comment between words.

I know, I can never do those things!

Thanks, it's good to know I've had an impact.

I just took that word thing off. Robots attack!

I worked in the stupidest place in the world, so when I retired, I started a 'Rail Against Stupidity'. This is depressing since blundering stupidity is an essential part of human society.

The US injection earthquake stupidity kept me going much longer. Now, all the major geotechnical stupidities will take years to show up. The US is injecting into smooth faults, the Niagara Tunnel lining will take years to crack, and still more years before they drown in the Bruce deep shaft.

You can't fight stupidity.... and live.

Suddenly being attacked by robots. Will put up again the impossible wall.

I enjoy coming and reading your ramblings - hope you keep posting, even if it isn't as frequently
