You know what takes a lot of time?
Being a parent.
Between the mysterious knee injuries and art-project-stains-that-will-not-come-out, the school plays and endless-bar-mitzvah-related-events, the usual homework and occasional conversation — phew! Who has time for anything else? Like, you know, blog maintenance?
Also work. Work also takes a lot of time, which is a nice thing all told, given how little work there was for a good long while, but, yeah. Work takes up a lot of hours.
Thinking, also. Staring into space, meandering through the thoughts of others, reading for background or general improvement in one’s field — wowie zowie. Not only time-consuming, but also far more tiring than one would think.
All of which by way of a very sorry explanation of why this blog has gone so under-tended of late. Sometimes I juggle it all and produce three useful posts a day; other times, my brain reaches its limit just before the hours do and we’re left with a random music video instead of a proper consideration of some important human fact, foible, or folly.
So please forgive me. Here’s to next week being up to scratch.
