When I was growing up, I liked to listen to Simon and Garfunkel. And, no I’m not that old. They were already past their prime years of musical production by the time I started to listen, but I did enjoy their musical stylings. At one point, I counted the song, “Sounds of Silence” as one of my favorite songs. Why am I telling you all this? Because, this week, I am smack dabbed in the middle of my second annual Go Dark week. If it has a CRT or speakers, its off this week, and even though I am actually writing this post about 50 hours before the week officially begins, I am comfortable enough with predicting the future to say that I am having a great time.
I plan on writing more about my observations next week when I turn the computer back on. Last year I posted a single post the Friday before Go Dark week and left up all week. This year, I had some article I wanted to share, so I went ahead and wrote them ahead of time and scheduled them for this week. Plus, Friday marks my 500th blog post here on Dad in the Middle, and that just seemed like something I should acknowledge. That means that, even though you’re seeing new content each day, I actually haven’t visited this site in several days by the time you read this. And, check back Friday for a very special episode of Blossom…errr Dad in the Middle.
So, in the words of Simon and Garfunkel:
Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again.
