If you are a regular reader, you know I have been noticeably absent from this place. Posts have slowed to a trickle and this site has become an afterthought that occurs at the end of the day when my energy is nill and my creativity has been exhausted. I have been out of the loop — this virtual, navel-gazing loop.
I am not apologizing. In fact, this is how I want it.
I have never been happier professionally. I feel challenged in a great way and I’m making interesting things with my own hands. And personally, things are wonderful. As I write this, my beautiful daughter is peacefully asleep in my lap and all is right with my world.
Days pass like they’re in fast-forward. I feel like there is no time; there is only now. I am totally and completely focused on the things I love.
I think this refreshed focus means I’ve lost touch with the scene in some way. I have little interest in commenting on the new phone or a social network’s latest strategic move. I want to watch my kid play t-ball or code a compelling gallery interactive, not burn cycles on analyzing the benefits of a larger screen on a device I have no interest in owning.
While I’m making the choices that feel natural to me, I feel bad about letting people down — readers, listeners, Andrew and others. This site isn’t going away, but it might just be effectively retired for a while. I’m sorry, but I hope you understand.
