I'm taking a break to grow cabbages.

This is the ill-fated cabbage merchant from the Avatar: the Last Airbender,
but at least in this screenshot the feeling is mutual.
Once upon a time, there was this Roman emperor, see? And things got real busy for him in the Caesar-business, so busy in fact that he gave up his throne and retired to his farm so other people who cared more about these kinds of things could fight over who gets to be in charge. Well, things didn't go so well for the people who took over all his business, and they eventually decided that they needed his help running things again. They sent out some legionnaires to invite him back, but when they found him the old guy said, "No way, I'm too happy growing cabbages, which are fucking awesome by the way."

I've never been a Roman emperor, but at least in the Satanic sense I'm definitely the ruler of my own self. The past couple years I've been working real hard at running a household while also managing my stress, and time after time the answer to both those tasks is, "Do less of other stuff." And you know, since I've cut back my YouTube channel, blogging, and Tarot work, I've never been happier.

All of which is a long way of saying that I'm taking a break from blogging to grow cabbages for a while, and I anticipate coming back to regular blogging in January 2019.

See you in the New Year.
