November marks the five year anniversary of starting this blog. It has been over four years since I’ve posted.
A lot has happened since then.
Ended two unhealthy relationships and found the right one.
I left a job that wasn’t for me and found a career that is challenging and rewarding. I also get to work side by side with one of my best pals.
I got the cancer. I was lucky enough to be in the care of skilled and compassionate doctors and nurses and their support staff who fixed me.
In the world we’ve seen:
The rise of Right Wing extremism. The cultification (it’s my blog, I can make up words) of an utterly horse-shit ‘ideology.’
A global pandemic.
There’s more, obviously, but you’re a person too, and you’ve lived through the same stuff, so, you know, just think back on the past few years and add some bullet points.
Speaking of bullets, we have a problem with people killing other people in large quantities ALL THE TIME.
Clearly I haven’t figured out how not to rely on run-on sentences.
I’ve lost a coherent narrative quicker than I expected.
I would like to engage more with writing. I do not know how that will manifest. Which, ironically, is the only consistent theme in my desire to write.
All of the things mentioned above deserve their own deep-dive.
I’m going to add some “blog post planning / brainstorming” to my morning routine and see if anything comes of it.
If you’ve spent any time reading this I’m sorry, but I’m also thankful for your attention and time. I will try to make it worth the effort in the future.
Please be kind and always work towards bettering yourself, your community, and the world around you.
Enjoy your Sunday.
