Input / Output

I’m already looking forward to next year (2010), when I am going on writing-hiatus for awhile.  A person can’t minister from the overflow if his spigot is bigger than his reservoir.  We can’t say, “My cup runs over” if the input lines are reduced and there’s a hole in the mug.  Gauges get low.  Batteries die down.  Brownouts occur.

All of which is to remind us of the old adage: 

If you’re output exceeds your income, your upkeep will be your downfall.
