Writing is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.

— Winston Churchill

Blog Withdrawls

How is it possible that I haven’t written anything in two and a half weeks? I’m having blog withdrawls, which I think is a good thing. Perhaps it means this unexpected, self-imposed hiatius I’ve been on is just about over.

Have you ever experienced blog withdrawals? It’s not pretty. Kind of like the food poisoning I had last week, apparently brought on by a bad batch of mushrooms…and they weren’t even the kind of mushrooms rumored to create intoxicating douses of hallucinations…oh no, these were the legal organic variety.

I’ve also been buried in research as I try to navigate the idea that Aaron will start kindergarten this fall, and I’m not at all impressed with what the government has deemed “a good education”. Nor am I impressed in the tiniest bit with the methodologies our federal, state and local governments use to help children gain said education. Oh yes, my friends, I’ve been on a bender for the last two weeks and I’m sure you’re just dying to know what stick has climbed into my back end and has me spewing statistics and alternative rhetoric. Well, OK, so I know you’re not really dying to read my rant…but I do miss you and look forward to resuming a more normal writing schedule within the next few days. In the mean time, can I just send you a great big, downloadable hug?

Maybe I should have titled this, Knock Knock…Is anybody still out there
