Serious Bump in the Road

Okay, it’s been weeks since I posted here, or in fact done anything about this blog at all. Even though my intention was to work on this for fifteen minutes every day. And that’s okay. Because I’m good enough, I’m smart enough…well you get the idea.

My father passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly three weeks ago. I don’t want to get off topic by talking about what that was like, but suffice it to say that it threw off my equilibrium pretty severely. Just getting back to the necessary tasks in my life has been difficult, let alone “discretionary” tasks like working on this blog.

It’s my intention to resume this project now and I’m even hoping that maintaining this habit will be grounding and, dare I say it, therapeutic. There is comfort to be found in the familiar, the routine and the ritualized. Perhaps I’ll post more on that tomorrow.

    Ben,

    I’m terribly sorry for your loss. I do hope you’re able to bounce back at some point and pick back up your 15 minute blog project. It’s been enjoyable and an inspiration.

    Sean
