How to Read This Blog


HOW TO READ THIS BLOG:

To get the most out of this blog, I recommend beginning with the earliest post and proceeding in chronological order. For the most part this blog, like a planning document, builds on data and rationale in a linear manner. You may find value in individual posts taken in isolation, but I suspect your experience will be richer if you follow the intended progression.

Summer Sabbatical

Anyone following this blog, either in real time or post factum, will see that there is a considerable break in writing the past several months.  As the days became warmer,  the world became green and I found myself less inclined to spend time typing on a computer.

In addition to the call of the outdoors, there are ominous signs (locally and globally) that things are rapidly deteriorating, and the time we have left before collapse is running thin.  This sense of running out of time has only further discouraged me from taking to my online activities.

I imagine I'll find inspiration to take up writing again when the good weather begins to wane.  As we should know by now, nothing is certain.  Perhaps there will be time to finish my various series in this space, but quite possibly not.

For now, let's just enjoy this:


Lyrics
I am the eagle, I live in high country
In rocky cathedrals that reach to the sky
I am the hawk and there's blood on my feathers
But time is still turning they soon will be dry
And all of those who see me, all who believe in me
Share in the freedom I feel when I fly
Come dance with the west wind and touch on the mountain tops
Sail over the canyons and up to the stars
And reach for the heavens and hope for the future
And all that we can be and not what we are
