This blog has been pretty quite for the last 3/4 of a year or so. For the most part, I've not had much to say. Lately, though, I've had a creative burst of energy and I'm grappling with how to channel it. I'd like to be able to resume blogging or adding to the public discourse in some manner (podcasting, twitter, etc.) but I'd like it to be more significant than my past efforts. The correct channel and theme for my efforts is still under consideration. In the meantime, sit back, light a mantern, relax and enjoy these lazy summer nights.
