but he never got cross if the game went wrong, and he always told the truth

Well, I don't know what to say.  For the past two months I have been too busy feeling apathetic and disappointed and unmoored to write any blog posts, save for one I started and then thought, "Nah, better not."  My already-hard heart has acquired a new layer of calcification and I am currently on a swell roller coaster ride in which I regularly wonder if anything I thought I knew is even true.  I am aware that I live a tremendously coddled existence, so I can't complain, but for me it has been unpleasant.

Plus blogs . . . who needs 'em?  So long, so self-adulating, adding so little to public discourse, meh to it all.  IT'S OLDTHINK!  But I am glad I have this little space to navel-gaze in, and as soon as I find an interesting topic that won't cause repercussions to my personal life I'll come straight here to hammer it out.

I'm sorry it has been unpleasant; the world can be very unpleasant at times, and disappointment/disillusionment is an annoyingly inevitable part of the maturational process, or so I have found. I like your blog, and I like your writing - I hope that you find this encouraging.

Thanks! It is certainly annoying to grow up and find out that the world can't be sorted into neat little boxes.
