It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted here. For those of you who subscribe or follow, thank you for staying with me. I really do appreciate it. I didn’t fall off the face of the earth, though you could be forgiven for wondering what happened. The short answer, honestly, would probably be equal parts life changes and laziness.
Life changes: For me, the New Year brought an unexpected disruption which necessitated an immediate rearrangement of a lot of things for me, schedule-wise. Those things happen. To do what priorities demand, one must adjust, which I did.
Laziness. Things began to settle down for me about April, and that’s when the laziness part crept in. Experienced writers will tell you you should write something every day. I think I understand why. Thinking and writing are like the flow of a waterway. It must keep moving to stay fresh. I kept up with commitments and ongoing assignments, but the longer I went disengaged here, the more things I seemed to have to say, but the bigger the “block” that stood in the way of my coming out of seclusion to say it. Procrastination breeds procrastination. If you’ve ever stayed with something for very long, I bet you can relate.
So given that it’s been a while, this is a good time to revisit and reiterate two aspects of this place as a cyberspace outpost.
Focus: I spent some time re-thinking what I want the organizing principle to be. I named this blog Right Angles for a reason. You can read about that on the About page, and I hope you will. In short, I do believe there is such a thing as objective truth. People’s opinions may land scattershot all over the board, but an opinion does not a truth make. The objective here is to shed light on truth, especially truth that matters. There are a lot of ways to do that.
To expand on that concept and to provide a foundation for dialogue, I’ve added a personal Statement of Faith page, which I hope you’ll take a look at as well. Of course, you are welcome to participate in discussions here whether you agree with it or not. Which leads to my next point —
Atmosphere: In pursuit of respectful, mutually edifying dialogue, I have added a Comment Policy. Please do read that before adding any comment to any post.
My hope is to get back to more regular activity here. Also, when I see something really good, I will reblog it. I look forward to hearing from you and to some healthy, mutually-edifying discussion.
