I feel like I owe you all an explanation. You all have been so loyal and patient with me, and I am just off with no explanation. Here’s the deal — there are a couple of big things afoot for our family right now that I cannot write about just yet. These big things keep my mind very, very occupied, and naturally I want to write about what is on my mind. But I can’t. So I am not writing anything. I promise that I will be back once a few personal things get resolved.
It does feel terribly self-involved that I am unable to post because my personal life is so all-encompassing, given the giant things afoot in the world. I should be writing about racial profiling and Harvard professors, but I figure I have nothing new to add, there. Or I could be writing about Cronkite, but, I have written about him and what he meant to me once already. I think I will post on him soon, but I need a little time to think about his loss. And I guess I could write about the health care reform that simply expands the existing coverage with little actual reform, but again, smarter people than I have already said all of this.
So, I will cocoon, plan birthday parties, deal with sick children, and ask your forbearance for my spotty (at best) blog reading and my weak excuses for posts. Right now, even writing Facebook status reports feels like lying, because the big things we are waiting on must remain unspoken.
On another note, Benjamin has given up his dream of being a princess. Now, he wants to be a ballerina. A big, scary ballerina, to be sure, but a ballerina nonetheless. Anyone know where I can find a tutu in size “husky”?
