1001 Years before I Finish This Video Game

Woe is me as I lay here crying, for I have started a video game I may not finish.  Maybe I’m afraid of what will happen to me after I finish the game. Or, dare I say it, do I fear success in the game world? No, I’m sure I’m brave enough.

In truth, I must slay a mighty dragon, return a princess to her throne, return her crown that an awful thief absconded with and take out the garbage. That’s why I can’t play yet. When I’m done all that, then I can play my game and tend to my vegetable patch.

Sometimes I feel like all I can do is tend to my digital garden for a couple of minutes. I think the zucchini is ripe, and I’m excited to see it come back next year too. The tomatoes look even better than I could have imagined.

I’m not sure when this game is over. Maybe it’s after the land becomes barren and infertile. Maybe it’s after the soil seems parched, dry, crumbly under foot and returns to dust.

No matter when the game ends, I vow to keep my joy burning brightly in the face of dark days. I will finish this game even if it takes 1001 days.

I’ll Be Back

Hello fellow video game players and everyone who loves to read!

I’ll be quite busy over the next couple of months. I’ll be rescuing pretty princesses from the claws of slimy reptiles. Wait! No, that was just some video game I was dreaming about playing.

Oh, dreaming! Alas! It seems that is where my game playing is relegated to these days.

But fear not, dear friends, for I will be playing soon and this blog will resume. To be exact, expect to see this blog re-bloom on March 10, 2016.

Until then!
