I just wanted to take a moment to apologize for the lack of posts these last couple of days, and in the next day or two to come. I’m taking a short break in light of a seriously difficult time that I’m going through. Last month, when I started this blog, I vowed to keep my personal life well out of it. This was not a “journal” blog that I was writing, it was more an outlet for my intellectual energies, a place to write about books, music, literature, history, science, and I fear that if I start writing about anything now, it will be quickly consumed by these incredibly powerful emotions that I’m feeling. Maybe in a couple of days I’ll get back to writing, if nothing else, it will provide a good distraction from all of this.
