The Materialist Theory of History Proven Again…sort of

Blogs are funny things. I read a report in the New York Timesrecently that suggested most people start their blogs high in anticipation of readers, influence or money. Within a very short time they lose interest.  One blog survey reported that the vast majority of registered blogs haven’t been updated in the past six months.

Not me. I published a small circulation newsletter for eight years. I wasn’t expecting readers, fame or money.

Still, of late, I haven’t updated too much. Why?

Busy with work. But today is summer. Two months to read, write, think, relax, do all that stuff that’s been piling up.

Which is pretty much a materialist theory of history: when you’re consumed with finding food, you don’t have much time to create art.
