Writing is my refuge.
Until I stopped, I had filled a website at this exact domain name with trivial thoughts. That site lasted for about sixteen years. It was decommissioned for a hundred good reasons. And I moved on to write other places, niche blogs, on a variety of topics: outdoor life, cooking, art, video games, books, whatever.
But I always sort of missed this space.
A space to just write trivial thoughts.
A little more than a month ago I handed in my resignation at work. I quit that job for a hundred good reasons, but in doing so negated about ninety-five of the reasons I stopped blogging on that old site.
See where this is going?
Writing is my refuge and publishing a general-purpose, personal blog is something I need right now to gather my thoughts, steady my motivation, and cement my reality into a space that exists somewhere outside my own head.
Simply, I just need a place to write some stuff down every day. A journal.
So. I’m back.
