Ah, I remember those golden days of my youth, exploring the vast reaches of outer space with Heinlein (before he got **WEIRD**),Silverberg and Asprin and the fantastic worlds of JRR Tolkien, Piers Anthony (before HE got weird!) and even as recently as David Eddings.

The imaginations of man have become less interesting to me (at least in book form - I still enjoy a good Sci-Fi/fantasy movie!), so I don't like to invest my time in reading a book that may take 8-20 hours of time that I could be devoting to singing, studying, defending or teaching the Gospel of Christ.
...or blogging, I suppose...HA!
Yeah - I guess I am evaluating the investment of my time more closely...and I really don't miss it...trying to focus on the essentials...wonder what I will start trimming back on next...
