Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.
Well, actually there have been no reports of my death, in fact there’s been no news of me, at least no news here, for a very long time. It’s not that things haven’t been happening, it’s that most of what has been happening has either been political, social, or personal, none of which is easy to write about.
The one thing I can say with confidence is that life keeps changing. For a very long time I didn’t feel like I had the energy to write much at all for public consumption. It’s not that I don’t have things to say, or that writing was too much work. It’s that many of the things I want to say are politically, socially, or emotionally charged, and the though of having to defend those things leaves me feeling agitated and weary.
I have the sense that as my living situation changes I may find that I have the energy to take on some of those topics, but I’m not there yet, and so I’m lying low, avoiding the stress of conflict and saving my spoons for things that are more required for my day to day sanity. In the coming weeks and months we’ll see what happens.
