The point on the orbit of a celestial body that is farthest from the sun.In the book Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, the author decribes the mans interest like a planet in orbit around the sun (where the sun in that analogy is the woman, but can be applied to anything). Or maybe it was a rubber band, I forget. The point is that the interest in anything goes up and down along with time, like when how a planet in an elipsical orbit around a star is sometimes further away and sometimes closer.
Right now I feel a bit further away from blogging. (But I do know the interest will eventually return.)
