I recognize the prior post as an excellent example of Blog Therapy. When I encounter psychological difficulty, I write a blog post. The blog is my Linus blanket.
I use the blog as a way to understand my changed world. It allows me to explore events, to explain them, anchor them, and place them within a cognitive framework that encompasses all the injury after effects. The blog is less a narrative and more a set of minor diagnostic routines applied each time my world bends out of shape, or when I fail to conform.
Good to hear from you. Didn’t get your email until after the meeting. I left the house around 0600 in an attempt to beat the rain to the university. Worked on the way in. Less successful on the way home.
This is an updated holding post for the November Review. I had a lot of problems and became completely backed up. There was a submission deadline to meet on December 4th and meeting this deadline required the materials be in the mail by December 3rd. All my time was devoted to completing the submission.
