Induced Torpor

noun \ˈtȯr-pər\

Definition of TORPOR

a : a state of mental and motor inactivity with partial or total insensibility
b : a state of lowered physiological activity typically characterized by reduced metabolism, heart rate, respiration, and body temperature that occurs in varying degrees especially in hibernating and estivating animals
: apathy, dullness
: what happens when the number and kind of problematic issues with which the mind is dealing exceed the capacity of the subversive mind to understand and undermine effectively in the very short time-frame imposed by the blog format. Sometimes leads to forgetfulness, procrastination, insensitivity to the passage of time and missing deadlines long-ago self-imposed.

I'll get back in the saddle. Have no fear. Unfortunately I feed sadness and remorse that I can't feed your hunger for subversion at regular intervals at this time. The phrase 'Too much on his plate' comes to mind. I miss you, too!

Hasta luego. A la prochaine. Na shledanou. See you later.


  1. One of the main reasons I don't maintain a blog, is the stress created by the self imposed deadlines. I tried once, but this is as far as I got:

    Since, Wonderdog

  2. Now that you mention it, maybe I shouldn't be so concerned about the occasional lapse. You only lapsed once. But it was a mighty lapse, if ever there was one. Keep an eye out for something later today. It might even be interesting!


Thanks for visiting!
