OK, so I tired of blogging for a couple years. It presented huge pressure to produce, and frankly, my jobs require spontaneous creativity enough as it is.
Also, I was working on a book, which I am still working on, but which is mired in some legal issues at the moment.
Since I was here last, lots of good stuff has happened, and approximately one shit-ton of really horrible stuff. Which I will spare you.
All that said, things remain in flux, and while I am loathe to delve back into political and social commentary in any deep way (too much emotional bandwidth, which is at a premium in these lean times, people), I have missed the chance to articulate my moments in a space larger than my Facebook status and Twitter updates. My life does not actually translate to What I Am Doing Right Now.
So I will attempt from this moment forward to use this space to offer a POV you may or may not like, but that will be unique and sort of bizarre in that good way you like. And oh yes, Carpenter will be joining me upon threat of remote death ray. So welcome to San Francisco freelance journalist meets Philadelphia civil rights attorney and professor.
