This blog serves many (admittedly selfish) purposes--

Soap Box.
Observation Point.
Comedy Club (although I wonder if everyone/anyone laughs).
Couch (for potatoes and friendly conversation).

I realized today that I haven't written as much as I used to.  A bit of me cried when I realized I'd lost a Google "follower" (see the widget box to the upper right).  It was a little like being unfriended on facebook--somebody took the effort of cleaning me out of their life.  Like any breakup, I tend to want closure.  To know that it wasn't me, it was them.

But this one is probably my fault.  In the whirlwind that was last year, it was difficult to find the time required to write on these things.

But now I think I'm ready to be back.  Married a year, helping a lovely wife wade through her Master's Degree, working (and grateful to be doing so), etc. has finally fallen into a comfortable groove.  It is, I think, the best groove I've ever been in.

And with that groove, I think I've finally found more blog time.

So here it is, my promise to myself and to anyone who deigns to read this: I'm going to write more. 

At least once a week. 

And I'll try not to waste your (and my) time too terribly.

Keep my feet to the fire, please.

I officially am now "following" you :) hopefully I'll make up for whoever left the cool kids club.

I feel like I would be remiss as your former editor and friend if I did not point out it's been two weeks since your most recent post ...

Puppies and sunshine,

Y'know, faint praise though it may be given that you don't know me from Adam, I'd just like to say that I really dig your style, and that I'm totally going to follow you as soon as I figure out exactly how to actually do that. You've got a way with words that has a way of making even the most mundane of everyday happenings seem interesting, and I really get a kick out of that.
