A Few Themes
I haven't been here for some time, as you've noticed. Upheaval in life and busy busy time at work.
It's interesting to come back and look at a good year almost of (granted, intermittent) blog entries, to see what I want to read again and what I wish would just vanish. Once upon a time my shame at the things I didn't like any more would have totally inhibited me from writing again until I had forgotten the whole experience.
Another thing I realized is I do feel better about life when I can drop in here and write for the pleasure of it. So some of the grumps of late is probably owing to just not having done any new me-writing for several weeks. A couple people have had emails so that's something but not quite the same.
So anyway here are a few literary topics I've been thinking about that it would be fun to write about: 1) anger 2) Jane Eyre 3) Books you read often and often, and books you read just once: what qualifies as "really experiencing" a work of art? I'm thinking about all these questions and want to play with them.
A commentary nudge is most welcome. Oh I know some of you say the comments technology is too complicated. I'll see if I can figure out a way to simplify it.
