The Nudge Nudge sketch with Terry Jones and Eric Idle in 1971
I was planning to write something else but then I read the sad news. The beloved Monty Python member Terry Jones has passed away. He was diagnosed with dementia in 2015. In 2014 Monty Python reunited. It’s difficult to imagine that a year later Terry Jones wasn’t the same anymore. I went to see the show in the movie theatre and I also have it on DVD. I was glad I went to see it. It was ‘live’ so it was almost the real thing.
Goodbye, Terry Jones and thanks for the laughs. Say hello to Graham Chapman from us here on Earth. Rest in Peace.
Today it’s St. Knuts day which means goodbye Christmas and it’s time to put the decorations away.
So this is it then. Nothing lasts forever and so doesn’t The Daily Post. Let’s take a moment of a retrospective time that has passed. It’s gonna feel so empty when there won’t be any new daily prompt nor any of that anymore. I’ve read a few post and comments on other blogs saying it’s WordPress who ends The Daily Post. That’s not the case, right? It’s a decision The Daily Post made and not WordPress. Maybe I just confused things. They have become the same to me. Whatever the reason, it will be different from now on. At least they will have the archive online. But yet it won’t be the same. It might feel really sad and all that but we will get used to it. We need to find another way to post daily. The world is full of ideas. The daily prompt was a big help to get post ideas. They even taught me English words I didn’t even know existed. Now when that’s gone, I don’t think I can find new English words I don’t know as easy as it was with The daily prompt. Not forgetting the other challengers.
Before I started with the daily prompt, I did the weekly writing challenge. When that ended, I should have seen it was the beginning of the end. But no one can predict the future. Life is about survival. Things come and go. We might feel sad and depressed about it but life must go on one way or another. Everything can’t be the way we want it to be. Life is full of disappointments but we have to accept them. Some things you just can’t do anything about. One is trying to change a person’s mind. In this case The daily post. They made a decision to end it and we should live with that decision. There is life after this. We can always go back to old daily prompt. That’s what I’m gonna do. Maybe even use the same words. I’m probably repeating myself since I wrote about this already but I say it again.
I can’t thank you enough The Daily Post Crew for all that you have done for us bloggers. You’ve been a great teacher and I wish you all the best for the future. This might be the last end for you but for us, the journey continues. Last but not least. Sharing really is caring and it’s all because of the greatness you shared with us. Three big cheers for The Daily Post! 🙌 🙌 🙌
