I realized the other day that I now have way too much stuff to do, not much of it important. I find myself in a new (old) place, starting a new job, living in a new apartment. I have, shamefully, bought myself a few new toys -- and I didn't even spend enough time with the old toys. Some of the new toys give me motion sickness; I actually have toys that literally make me physically ill. Soon work will pick up, too, which is important, and I'll have less time even to play with any of them.
But my favourite toy of all was this blog, at least for a few years there, and I certainly haven't played with it enough. I think I stopped using it when I decided that I should probably try and make some music, which was defensible. Why expend what creative energy I have on a blog, I thought, when I could be working on music? Now, though, I'm doing neither. I should change that.
How do I work this thing again?
