Nine Years

Dear Readers: I’m sorry I haven’t posted recently. There’s been a lot going on, but it’s nothing I particularly needed to share (and I’ve also been really lazy). I’m happy to say that I’ve survived the winter without falling into depression, and that it’s almost silly season and there’s no hint of mania either. Huzzah!Continue reading “Nine Years”

40 Random Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me

To Post, or Not To Post….That Is the Question

Now that I’ve kept this blog for a couple of months, I have come to find it something of a mixed blessing. I love doing it, and I’ve learned that it’s a lot like exercise: the more you do, the more you can do. Writing every day is excellent discipline, and even when I don’t have anythingContinue reading “To Post, or Not To Post….That Is the Question”
