My holding pattern continues but I've been doing a lot of thinking inside of it. It is not productive thought. It is more meandering, aimless, idle thought. It does not tend to produce large, coherent thoughts. It is good however to sit back and reflect in a manner that is not hindsight.
I'm fascinated with how passionately we tend to play the game. I include myself in this wholeheartedly. That passion is often the great binding agent. It is also the catalyst that starts battles. It makes us stand on one facet of the game while someone else picks another. Individuals are just not neat and organized into categories, no matter how hard we try.
At the moment I'm collapsing TCS. Not as a permanent thing but because moving and setting it back up is just to much work. I'm mothballing it for now. Maybe I'll take the alts and try station trading or something. I just look at the task list of things I have to do in Eve and compare it to the things I want to do in Eve and compare that to the non-Eve things I'd like to spend time on and decided to make some changes.
Right now, moving TCS back and forth is just unpleasant. Plus, stocking had become a strain on my time. So, I'm going to take a few months off. It means swallowing some guilt but that is better than staggering, half assed through the market and disappointing everyone including myself.
The good news is that I have productive, useful things to do with my time. Some of those I plan to get to after I post this.
I have some ideas as to what I will do with the rest of my play time. No worries on that.
