Why I Don't Post Anything Anymore (OOOH! Feel the Irony!)

I'm not sure I can articulate the reason, but here are some thoughts:

In youth, we are interested in truth. As we age, we become interested in reality.
(Monsignoir Ronald Knox)
(Note, reality here means the same as truth, only the whole of it apprehended by the whole self, not merely intellectible part of it by the intellect.)

Eventually, there will come a time when nothing interests you except souls.

The Christian faith is a thing made for living and fighting, and, as such, it must have a certain element of routine...on the whole the normal view of Christianity (as opposed to the novel one) might be the saner of the two.
(GK Chesterton)

In this is my wisdom, that I know I am not wise. (Socrates) In a conversation, the wisest ought to do most of the talking. (Peter Kreeft, and Gandalf too!)

Tell me what you think, you thirty followers.

While I almost usually agree with Gandalf, I find that the wisest people are usually the ones who put the least forward in a conversation. Usually, not saying anything unless you know it to be accurate, if not wise, is at least highly sensible.

The voices of the foolish can drown out the voice of the wise.

Which is sometimes funny.

Uh, why is that funny?
