bloodless blogs?

I don't think so.  You know that line from Gene Fowler (1890-196): "Writing is easy: All you do is sit staring at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead." Stephen Leacock (1869-1944) had a similar attitude: “Writing is no trouble: you just jot down ideas as they occur to you. The jotting is simplicity itself--it is the occurring which is difficult.” A silent computer is just as harsh as a blank sheet of paper or a silent typewriter. Although we are given keys to push for Delete and Cut and Copy and Paste, there isn't one you can push that says "Write."  Ay, there's the rub.  

I'm still searching for the optimum time to shed my blood writing a blog. I like to fit it in before swimming but sometimes it makes me late.  Not that it's bad to swim at 6:30 or 7 but by that time the pool is not mine alone.  Later in the day doesn't always work out, depends what I'm doing that day.   And then there's my diary, and curricular reading and note-taking, plus extra-curricular reading. I'm not complaining.  I'm doing what I love best. I consider myself very lucky, blessed, in fact.  It's just there aren't that many hours.  I like what the woman said in praise of Daylight Saving: "The cows need the extra sunshine."  We all do.  If only there were extra hours.
