I’m going to start writing again. Again.
Just for myself this time though. In the past I would construct these long posts pontificating on random things with the hope that someone would find them interesting or that I would contribute to an important conversation. The result was flat and somewhat contrived posts that were hard to keep up with.
So now I’m taking a different approach. One that I hope will encourage me to maintain the practice of writing. The real purpose here is to organize my thoughts and to create a record of this time. With an 8 week old baby the present feels so surreal that I can’t imagine how elusive the memories will be.
I guess I’m just trying to enshrine my current self for the enjoyment and education of my future self. There’s something sick there, right? Oh well. Future me says thanks! I assume.
