I have not posted here in more than 3 weeks.  I have been thinking about why this is the case.  To be honest, I really just don’t know.  I can say that I have been having problems with insomnia, looking for work, and feeling like I don’t know what to say.

I have been reading blogs for sure.  And sometimes I have thoughts on what I have been reading, but for some reason I just have not sufficiently motivated to write my thoughts here.

Part of it, I think, is wondering whether my former zeal at writing about religion, polyamory, etc is waning due to a cynical feeling that people simply are incapable of growing beyond the theistic, monogamous, or “normal” worldview I am so bored with.  I, perhaps, am becoming too cynical recently.  I want to write in order to educate, clear up my views, and to possible offer insight or perspective to people, but the more I experience the more I realize that most people just are not interested in such things.  All thins I’ve known for a long time,but they are having more of an emotional impact recently.

I’ll not dwell on this cynicism, but I will make an effort to write thoughts I have here, even if they are short.  This creative outlet of mine has been helpful in the last 2 years, and I would hate to see it shrivel up and die due to neglect.

Well that might be true but I am sure one post in three weeks would be enough for the other half!

[…] My lovely man posted recently about why he hasn’t been posting as much recently — a thing which I refuse to allow myself to do, because once I get in the habit then half my posts began with “Sorry I haven’t posted in a while…” The blog will be updated when the blog is updated. (I also stop myself from making any but the vaguest promises about upcoming content. I learned on my earlier blogs — of which there have been an embarrassingly large amount, but that’s another issue — that any time I obligated my future self to write on a particular topic, my future self would go on strike and whole weeks would pass without a new post.)
