This blog feels done. (I keep forgetting that it’s not 2007 anymore.) A friend of mine, intending to encourage me, wrote this:
“I love that you’re still blogging!”
Then another friend: “You’ve reminded me about poetry. Why did I stop reading poetry, anyway?”
And like a balloon I deflated, in the slow, steady way of all things inevitable.
There is a fundamental mismatch between me (or more properly, my words) and social media in its current incarnation. I’ve understood this for some time even as I’ve tried to ignore it.
But the time has come to honor truth: This blog feels done.
Thank you, each and every one, for the ride.
