It’s true what they say about how time flies. Little did he realize it but it’s been over a month since Walski’s posted anything on this blog. Not even the cut/paste semi-automated Amplify posts.
Not good. By any measure.
He has his reasons why this has happened, of course, and in due time, Walski will explain why. Many things in Walski’s life have changed and it is due to these changes that myAsylum (and Twitter, for that matter) has had to take a back seat.
But the absence will be temporary, while Walski gets back into the groove of things. In the meantime…

And no, Walski hasn’t lost his sense of humor just yet…
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a joyous year end for all of you folks out there who still bother to come by…
(when the going gets tough, the blogposts go missing, and more, in the full post)
First big change in Walski’s life: he no longer has to work 9-to-6 anymore. This, thanks to a major restructuring in the organization that he used to work for (no names please if you have to comment, okay?). He won’t go into the gory details of why the restructuring and all. Walski doesn’t kiss and tell.
Suffice it to say that they offered a separation scheme, and Walski decided to take the money and run. Or something to that effect.
Which brings us to the second big change: he is now co-owner of an art gallery. Those who know him may find this to be surprising, but hey – whoever said that Walski always threads the beaten path? So, a lot of time has been devoted of late to getting the gallery up and running.
That’s the main reason why Walski hasn’t been doing much with this blog, because quite simply, there just aren’t enough hours in the day, and prioritization has to kick in.
That said, he’s been watching, reading and listening to much that has transpired in our beloved nation over the past few weeks, and to put it simply, Walski is not at all pleased.
We’re literally digging a hole that Malaysia may not be able to crawl out of – ever – if we don’t get our act together. But more about what he thinks about it all later.
For now, Walski thought that he should get his fingers back to the keyboard, before all skills related to writing leave him for good. Now that would be a tragedy. Of massive proportions. More massive than the mess that our nation has seemingly gotten herself into.
So, rather than Walski making you feel more depressed, he’ll end this short post by wishing everyone (again) Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and convey a personal hope that the coming year won’t be as fucked up as 2011 was overall…
