I haven’t been writing much in this blog lately. At first, I thought it was because I had nothing interesting to say, that I was not thinking about interesting things. I realized, though, that I am thinking about interesting things, but these are not things I want to share on this blog.
I never embraced the share-everything model of blogging. I’m rather private, and I enjoy blogging about issues more than about myself. So, I guess I’m at a stage in my life where personal issues are very pressing, and they have pushed away some of the musing about other things.
I also have done a better job tuning out a lot of the news and when I do hear the news, I’m not in a rush to form opinions about things I know nothing about. It doesn’t make me a better blogger, but I think it makes me a better human being. In some contexts, certainty is very dangerous.
I’m in no rush to blog up a storm. I would like to write more, but I tire of staring into screens. Maybe, like the comic, I need a sabbatical from blogging. This is a decision I can make another time.
