40 Days

Well, another year, another Lent.

I've been away, stuck in my head for too long. It's not like I've been doing nothing...I've been doing a lot of reading, but I'm starting to think it's possible to do too much reading. Or, at any rate, doing a lot of reading, unaccompanied by verbalized thought, is proving to be un-salutatory to my frame of mind. So this Lent, I have decided that among my myriad feats of asceticism, I will also be forcing myself back into the habit of actually talking about the ideas in my head. Every day, I must take a total of 30 minutes to an hour to write. The rest of the day I can ruminate however much I want, but for that half- to full-hour I have to actually bang something out.

Don't worry, you aren't going to suffer through a post every single day. But I am damn well going to post. I have that thread of a manifesto I can pick up. I'll probably come up with something else on the side. Maybe somebody will pick a fight with me. That would be fun. We'll see.

Happy Ash Wednesday. Let's see how much fun we can make this Lenten season.
