Reconsidered

Like Michael Corleone said: "Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in."

Last week I posted that it might be goodbye for good for my blogging.  Lots of things went into that.  I have wound up extremely busy with work-related stuff lately (speaking of which, I'm soon going to be advertising freelance writing services on this blog, and if you want to go ahead and solicit my services e-mail me at theknightshift@gmail.com and I'll be happy to discuss it with you!).

And then, from my perspective, some... very lousy things happened on this end.  My spirit wound up darn nearly broken.  Friends counseled me to not be discouraged, to keep going.  That this blog has given them hope when they needed it, even if at times I myself feel little or no hope at all.

Huh.  Imagine that.  Getting hope from the hopeless.  I suppose anything is possible...

Maybe just as writing about the bipolar disorder has been, I should keep writing to... stay grounded, stay focused, on things.  Keep grounded in reality.  Be able to see beyond my own problems.  Maybe even offer something worth visiting this blog for people who are needing something to smile or laugh at.  Who knows: maybe even provide something new to think about.

So for the time being, I'm going to stick with it.  I'm going to try even to have a new photo of Tammy up tomorrow.  The frequency of posting may not be very often, at least not for the time being.  But it will be something, anyway.

Just one thing that I'd like to ask: this is a very difficult time for me right now.  However it is that you can or are led to, some prayer for Yours Truly would be seriously, seriously appreciated.  I don't know how I've been brought through the past week, except for God bringing me to where I am now.  I have to thank Him and I have to thank those who have kept me in their prayers.

I suppose, if there is any hope at all in this world, that is where it is going to begin...

Will be praying for you, Chris. And I'm glad you've reconsidered. The internet wouldn't be the same without you!

Mr. Knight,

I visit your site about once a month just to read your antics and see how YOU are doing. I read most of your posts on BEING BIPOLAR and can say that your honesty and insight helped me tremoundously in understanding what my son was experiencing with his own illness. You have been able to provide some perspective that I would not have been able to understand on my own. I have a great deal of respect for you and your willingness to share. You have turned me onto following Jessica Watson and her sail around the world, and I am constantly clicking on the many links you have posted throughout the last several years. These shared thoughts have opened up many opportunities for critical thinking that I have in turn shared with my family. I will pray for you and I trust that you will continue to provide information and ideas to help motivate learning, understanding and awareness. I thank you Sir!

God Bless
