How the time flies! I've had a website in one form or another since the early 2000's but this one, for whatever reason has stuck the longest, since 2011 to be exact.
I love that this site exists independently of the general pull of the web's centralising forces. I also love that for better or worse, this site reflects who I am, my interests and my style stretched through time.
There has been considerably less activity here over the past few months than I would have liked. I could blame the inter-continental move, trying work circumstances, or anything for that matter, but the truth is I've found it difficult to get at who or what I am just looking in the mirror. Harder still write at all with any sense of direction.
Yet, I have higher hopes for myself in this season of unlocking. Struggle is the start of something new. And given the relative amount of existential angst I've felt, I'm expecting a decent bounce back. (Can you tell economics was never a subject I paid enough attention too?).
Happy birthday, you big, beautiful, independent blog; here's to another year, another spring and another season of growth ahead.
