It’s been a while since I have written anything. Now I’m not the type to continuously blog/tweet/Facebook about what I had for dinner, and I’ve been away for longer periods before. With age comes wisdom: I can now shut up when I have nothing interesting to say… 🙂
But since I last posted there have been some things that I’ve wanted to write. But when you’ve been away for a while, you don’t want to come back writing about something silly or mundane. The longer you’re away, the bigger of a deal the imagined comeback blogpost has to be. Until you reach the point where the only possible post is about how you discovered intelligent life on another planet or cured cancer. Or you just post something anyway…
OK, that out of the way…. So how have I been? I’m still, as always, watching in awe as the world gyrates towards financial and environmental crisis. Not depressed by it (that was 2004-2005) as much as just impressed, slightly intimidated and incredibly curious as to how it’s all going to play out. Apart from that I am dealing with what I guess are fairly common things one deals with when reaching the forties: caring for aging mother, helping people around me as best I can and making sure my kids get educated. None of which is easy to begin with and the particular circumstances are certainly not always helping. All the while I’m trying to learn new things while wondering what the hell I should be doing with the rest of my life. All very stereotypical, I guess.
I’ll follow-up with a semi-quick series of posts about some of the things I’ve been learning and doing, or that have happened to me.
