I’m back (hopefully . . .)

Here’s what happens sometimes when I’m not even trying.


I have been away from blogging for over a month because my offline responsibilities have claimed the lion’s share of my attention.  Family, job, that sort of thing.

Part of the problem, too, is that I’ve gotten into the habit of writing long posts.  Although I’ll definitely continue doing that, I can also see that my perfectionism has kept me from posting at all.  So, inspired by Sheryl Sandberg’s advice to “lean in,” I’ll try to focus on gettting something up a couple times a week, even when I don’t feel I have anything “perfect” enough to share.

It’s called a blog, after all.  Short for web log and originally meant to be an online diary.  Not a literary magazine or a professional journal.  Just little snippets.

I think I can handle that.
