Blocked and Distracted
I have had trouble writing the past few days. Some events have distracted me. The least of which is baseball. However, the Cubs swept all three games from the White Sox this weekend, and came back in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Rockies last night after they blew a five-run lead in the top of the ninth. You have to enjoy baseball to the maximum while it is going on even when your team sucks.
Thinking about a world without god occupies my thoughts much of the time. With the passing of Rorty, pragmatist politics and the nature of metaphorical thinking seep into my thoughts.
Summer has arrived too. Looking at the women walking along the streets in various states of undress is almost unavoidable and highly distracting.
Then there are the other things. Damn, it has been difficult writing.
