Mental Block

CRAP!!!! I'm late writing my Ember Letter... AGAIN.

Is it a mental block? Is it busy-ness? Laziness? The fact that I feel like I don't really know the recipient (a one-sided correspondence to a stranger is hard to maintain)? Is it just my trademark procrastination rearing it's ugly head. (Incidently, Slate did what looked like a very interesting series on procrastination. I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. Seriously.)

Each time I write these suckers I have to go back and look at previous ones to make sure I'm not repeating myself, because not all that much is changing right now. It makes for very boring conversations with friends I see infrequently, and equally dull Ember Letters. Learn, Work, Repeat.


  1. wow. you need to do this twice a year? blessings... may it come smoothly this time.

    and you crack me up with your procrastinating on reading about procrastination. ((((di))))


"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
