Down the Hall on Your Left

This site is a blog about what has been coasting through my consciousness lately. The things I post will be reflections that I see of the world around me. You may not agree with me or like what I say. In either case – you’ll get over it and I can live with it if it makes you unhappy. Please feel free to leave comments if you wish . All postings are: copyright 2014 – 2021

It Is Time


This blog has been going since November of 2014 with well over 1500 postings of varying quality and meaning to be sure.

But now I feel that it is time to pull the plug. Today will be the last day for this blog.

I am tired. My mind is tired and my body is not as cooperative as it used to be. I feel unable to sharply observe the world around me and I don’t really have anything left to say.

To those of you who have been with me on this excursion from the early days – I thank you for your mysterious loyalty and the countless comments you have launched in my direction.

So, as I wrap up this chapter of my life, I urge you to love one another.Tell people that you love them. Hug them often. Don’t let them feel lonely.

Thank You and Goodbye.

  4. I am NOT checking above that I Like this Blog!! I don’t like it!! But…..some of your reasons for discontinuing after all these years, are, I’m sorry to say, Valid. Not all, but some. I will miss you, John Kraft, and the messages you prepared daily. Come back once in awhile, if aloud. We will be here, if aloud. 🙂 (You owe me a cup of coffee!)


  5. Sorry you won’t be posting anymore. Take care…

  9. John!!! I have been missing your posts. Apologies that it took me this long to find this one. I am selfishly sad, as your writing is terrific and has meant so much to me. I wish you all the best, my friend.


    • Jennie,
      I had the blog going for more than 5 years and 1500 posts…I was tired. Other things and people in my life were calling for my attention.
      I’m still writing but I am also getting back on stage doing standup comedy.
      I’m following your posts and enjoying your life adventures.

      • Thank you so much for getting back to me, John. I would hate to loose you. I completely understand why you backed off. You’re such a good writer, so please keep that up. I remember your posts about your acting. You are perfect for a standup comic!! Do you love it? Oh, I would love to be in the audience! I hope you post once in a while. Thank you for reading my blog and life adventures. Thanks for being a friend.
