I have successfully written a monthly blog for a number of years now. I am very proud of this blog – even if no one reads it. I enjoy writing on and about things that strike my fancy, and these entries have created a nice time capsule for who I am/was over the years.
These last 6 months of writing here, however, have felt more like a dreaded homework assignment over a fun, writing exercise. I am learning in this new year that I am stretched a little too thin, and not really living so much as doing a list of various tasks daily. I want to change that. I want to be happy, and want to prioritize my happiness and prioritize how I am choosing to live my life. That means taking a few things off my plate.
So, that said, I will no longer be doing a monthly blog post. This doesn’t mean this blog is done, far from it, (in fact I am working on a post about my love for Judy Garland, stay tuned!) – it simply means that I am allowing myself more time to write entries that mean something to me – that allows me to play with prose and talk about things I am passionate about without this ticking time clock and an attitude of “oh fuck it, I’ll just post whatever.”
I don’t want this to be a “whatever” blog, so it needs to cease being monthly.
Whew! I few better already. Again, stay tuned for the next entry — whenever it may be!

Please know that someone bothered to read it.
I’m not sure what type of world this is that someone who created one of the most breathtaking portraits of… darkness? searching for meaning? everything?… whatever The View was… it reminded me of what I’m here for.
And thanks for your work on Bojack in general. The show gave me a map to help others find me through the twists and turns of those who have suffered through a childhood without love. It gave a vocabulary to help many people express something they never had the words to communicate.
I guess what I’m saying is that I found myself in your words. And I’m grateful for that.
