Withered stumps of time

Posted on November 14, 2008


Yeah, I know, it’s been a while…

There were reasons for inactivity. In June a couple of major family events, one happy, one less so, contrived to make a thorough mess of my life, a mess which took several months to sort out. Then a new professional possibility arose, one which would, if I’d followed it up, have meant not blogging, at least not in this form. I decided not to go that way, but it did make me think quite hard about what I am doing and why, and whether giving time to a blog was an appropriate part of that.

Anyway, I’m back, with a more intentional idea of what I want this space to be (pretty much what it was, only now by choice rather than by chance). This will continue to be a place for ideas I find interesting enough to record, but which are sufficiently minor, or undeveloped, or exploratory, that they could not find a more traditional publishing outlet. If anyone wants to read, and perhaps to reflect, then be welcome; if you want to help me develop or discard the ideas by posting comments, then be very welcome.

I intend to blog about weekly, but with the caveat that I am more interested in the quality of ideas than their frequency. In a week where I simply have nothing to say, I will not feel any compulsion to construct a post just to keep the counter ticking over.
