In truth, I’ve been leading a markedly different lifestyle lately. Some would call it conspicuous consumption- in the last month, Ape and I have acquired a Dyson, a new washer, a Wii Fit, and a motorbike. Feeding this turbo-consumption is a new job and extra contracting work (which I intended to stop doing). All this crap leaves me with less time to think; a full house and an empty head have I.
Is that a good enough reason not to write? Has the acquisition of things replaced my drive to write? Not really. It’s also summertime (only for a few more days), and it turns out I’m a seasonal blogger. During these lovely midwestern summer days, my attention is turned outward, not inward.
So that’s that. I won’t beat myself up over not writing often enough; I’ll need to save my strength for the political banter to come this Fall.
