Today one of those friends, the estimable Mr. Tom Sheepandgoats (who logs on the web as "Sheep and Goats"—what else?—at typepad.com) observed,
This has to be a first. A blogger who has achieved his mission statement [wasn't the goal at one time to find out who you were?] and, having done that, discontinues the blog since it has served its purpose.As I gratefully told Tom,
I hadn't thought of it like that—having achieved my mission—but that could be it! In fact, maybe I'll start thinking of it that way, which is a lot cleaner and more cogent than my fuzzy thoughts about it have been up to now.Who I am—in one aspect at least—was fairly plainly revealed in my post of September 9, "All in or All out." I blogged for only two more weeks before desisting. Personal mission accomplished, reason for blogging fulfilled? Appears so.
