Contrary to a half-hearted 2009 resolution, I'm not posting much these days. I'd like to blame it on a short attention-span fed by 140 characters of Twitter or perhaps an obsession with Facebook. But that would be a lie since I'm spending precious little time in those places, too. It really comes down the malaise of having nothing much to say and no real drive to say it.
So here's what I'm thinking: a post every day for the entirety of September. For good or for bad, Mika the Cat and I will force thoughts into words into finger/paw muscles into cohesive groupings of electrons on the PC monitor. And we'll do it every day, for 30 days.
I think this could work. September will be interesting.
The evenings are getting cooler, and I'm content to sit in front of a keyboard with Mika's warmth on my lap. JediBoy begins his high-school phase while BandGeek contemplates her final(?) year there. My nemesis, the Steel-Set pool, will de-construct in a few days - perhaps for the last time. There will surely be another Geek Meet. There will be video games. A new season of television offers the usual promises that we know will ultimately disappoint. I will finish reading a book. Disney will buy more stuff. I will continue to get inspiration from other voices.
I think this could work.
See what we did? We made a blog post on September 1st! If Mika were awake, she'd probably offer a High Five.
