Close friends will tell you that I’ve always been ambivalent about this site – about its function, its draw, its automatic assumption of self-importance. I’ve put up some pretty personal material here – that was the point, after all, of controlling my own space – but it has left me feeling, in a way, rather overexposed. That ambivalence has now become distaste.
Hence, this solemn retreat. The blog is now an archive, a reminder of a time when I hung out a shingle and tried to make some words. Maybe it will return. Maybe it won’t. I’ll keep writing elsewhere.
