Some consider the recent outrageous act by the alleged comedian Kathy Griffin involving a mock severed head representing the President of the United States of America to be the preface to the apocalypse. I prefer a more pragmatic interpretation: If you condone her antics know that I do not need or want your support of my writing. If you condemn her for what amounts to an act of domestic terrorism, an act that may be considered sedition and treason, I would like to know you, perhaps making you a part of my life on a regular basis.
Some have considered my declaration to be drastic. Others have embraced it without hesitation or exception. More than a few have publically and privately cheered it, and declared that they will follow my example when it comes to purging unneeded things from their lives, using block functions on Social Media platforms.
As a Writer I work hard to produce quality. As a Writer I work hard to earn and maintain respect for my writing, and because I do I have to wonder why anyone would spend their life attempting to achieve success and then engage in an act that can only be described as self-destructive.
It is a cliché to say so, but Life is short, so why waste it engaging in action that defies simple logic and reason?
I prefer to focus on productive undertakings. I prefer efforts that yield worthwhile results. And I prefer to associate with like-minded individuals in pursuit of these goals.
