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.
Somehow, I have gotten away from reading those flights of science fiction and fantasy. I imagine, pray, hope it has something to do with my continuing sanctification and maturity in my walk as a follower of Christ.
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...
