“Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change.”
— Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
yesterday, i sat down with myself and an svu marathon and wrote through some tricky thoughts — things i’ve needed to think through for some time now. things like my goals for not just this month or year, but my life. how i want to live, who i want to be.
my peers joke about having a quarter-life crisis. i’m certain i have, too. and while i wouldn’t say that’s what i’m going through right now, i certainly feel unsettled. unmoored. in need of an anchor or, at the very least, a steering wheel.
writing my way to this conclusion has revealed a few things to me that, now that i’ve uncovered them, seem so obvious. like the only decisions i could make.
i’ve posted to this blog for the better part of five years. admittedly, not always consistently, not always substantively — but no matter how good i was at the blogging thing, i have digitally lived here since fall 2011.
in that time, i have considered changing this blog into a more static author page several times. i’ve probably posted to that effect before, to be honest, and yet here i am, still ‘thinking about it.’
well, at least, i was. until today.
going forward, my ‘real time’ thoughts can be found here. i won’t get into the whys of it all, because i don’t know that any of it would make sense. i’m not even sure how it makes sense to me, but it does, and has for a long time.
this change has been coming for a long time. i just fought it for far too long.
this space will now be my, let’s say, more ‘professional’ site. i’ll share information about publications and performances (if/when those materialise), and let you know about major events involving my artistic endeavours. anything beyond that will appear here.
there will be a few announcements coming in the next few weeks, so please don’t feel like i am abandoning you. i appreciate everything this blog has given me.
i’ve just grown up, and can no longer live in neverland.
let’s bring back an old favourite to celebrate how far this blog (and we) have come.
