Idealism is a Tough Job

I need to post every day.  I know this.

I need to tell people about this idea I have, answer the questions people have, and shorten my posts so people actually have time to read them!

However, I am no pie-eyed idealist that has an idea and is going to publish a book and run for office and tell everyone how I'm going to save the world. Reality keeps me grounded.

Reality also, sometimes, leads to depression.  I mentioned it in one of my other blogs, and I feel compelled to share it here.  It takes a long time and plenty of internal cheerleading to get pumped about my idea of changing this country's trajectory, and there is a lot of down time between these long posts because there is, literally, a lot of down time.  I'm prone to depression, and when I feel impotent and angry, I get depressed.

Keep reading. Keep e-mailing me.  Keep questioning me so I can have a reason to write more.

Keep believing that the world changes constantly, and I'll keep trying to change it for the better.

Keep up the good work. Idealism is tough, but it's the only reason to get up in the morning.
