I know. I know. It’s kind of been awhile since I’ve been here jabbering away with all of you at all of you.
But I have been working on something that I shall reveal down in the not too distant future.
And also, like many of you I have just been keeping my head above water, that was just the worst statement, in light of all the floods and hurricanes and disasters of late. But it was the first thing that popped into my head. Though despite my poor choice of words, this is a good moment to remember many people still need help in rebuilding their lives. Let’s not forget Puerto Rico. And they are fine with paper towels, so don’t send those. Maybe just a donation to The Red Cross or Salvation Army.
I’ve also been spending a lot of time on other social media sites, Instagram. Those of you on Instagram who don’t follow me there, I would say some of my better ideas and fun off the cuff stuff is ending up there these days.
You know I have been doing this blog close to ten years now. And the world of online information has changed so radically. So, I have been taking some of the other avenues a bit more seriously. I used to just dabble there and save everything for here. But people seem to want short and fast now. Which means I’m training myself to take my long form style and short form it.
And then the world being what it has of late, I feel a bit odd writing 1400 words of frivolity when what feels like every thirty minutes is a new disaster. So those are my excuses reasons for not showing up here in so long.
Wow, I forgot one of the big ones, it is Lucy’s last year livingat home being in the house, in HER room, with us ALL the time. So, I spend a crazy amount of time with her. And if gets down to writing a blog or watching Curb Your Enthusiasm with Lucy, Lucy wins.
I’m posting some of my Instagram posts to fill you in the last month. And maybe it will entice you to follow me there. Certainly if by chance you want to hear something from me every day, that is the place. For now.
This wasn’t actually last night, it was two weeks ago. Jon Hamm at The New Yorker Festival was last night. But I am still involved with my minimalist fascination.
