Hey, why the long silence on this blog? Long story short: I’m reviewing the copy-edits of my book manuscript, AND it’s the end of the semester, AND I’ve been so discouraged by the news of yet another mass murder in the U.S.A. on the heels of our latest in Colorado, not to mention the pure heroin-grade hate and fear that’s being mainlined into our politics these days, that I haven’t had the energy or the inspiration to write anything meaningful.
(Does anyone have a Naloxone shot for the body politic?)
I’m just busy, and sad, and so sorry. So very sorry.
If any of you have inspirational news or good ideas for how to get through this miserable winter, please share it in the comments below. I seem to be unusually affected by the dark this time around–maybe it’s just a hangover from having spent last winter in California, where it was just as dark but warm in the evenings so we could eat dinner outside.
