Just dropping in real fast to state the obvious: I haven’t done any reviews for a bit and I just kind of dropped off the Earth there. Sorry about that, and thanks to the friendly reader who checked to make sure I’m okay!
So the truth of the matter is, yeah, I’m doing okay! In some ways the okayest I’ve ever been, actually! I’ve also been pretty busy, which is partly the reason why I’m okay but also a result of being okay, and as a result the blog has fallen a bit by the wayside. I’m very sorry about that! On the plus side, it’s generally been the positive kind of busy: I’m working on myself with my therapist, getting more active with local politics and activism, doing a little bit of gardening, developing an honest-to-god social life, kicking butt at work, and trying to rest when I’m not doing any of those other things. It’s a heck of a bunch of things to start to figure out how to do as I’m approaching forty, but I’m loving it.
So here’s my official announcement that the blog isn’t going anywhere, but that the reviews will be a bit more sporadic for a while, at least until I learn how to incorporate them with the rest of my life. I do have a few exciting-looking paperbacks sitting around that will need discussing, and as we all know, there are always more to find.
Thanks so much for your support and readership for these past 9 1/2 years, and take care of yourselves and each other.
