Bite Size

It’s been a while since my last post. I haven’t abandoned my blog (and I hope you haven’t either), but lately it seems that every time I settle down to finessing or finishing one of the many articles that have been languishing in my drafts folder I am inevitably distracted by some pressing professional commitment or personal obligation. I’ve also taken on an unprecedented number of projects this year (and for the next) and while they’ve proven to be fun and extremely rewarding, they too have occupied much of my time.

This frenetic pace shows no signs of abating – which got me thinking about the way forward, as far as this blog is concerned. Of course it occurred to me that I might have bitten off more than I can chew in recent months! But it also occurred to me that part of the challenge of maintaining consistent blog output is perhaps less about time management and more related to the fact that many of the themes I’m attempting to tackle with this blog are just too epic to unpack, simply.

This would have been so much easier if I chose to launch a food blog instead!

And, on a related note, I thought that a solution might be to offer up smaller (though hopefully no less substantial) bite size morsels in between the more lengthy articles and commentary – as kind of mini installments in an ongoing series.

And so I’ve assigned myself some holiday homework. I plan to make the most of this more serene and reflective (for me anyway) time of year to dispense with these bite-sized essays.

Happy Holidays!

  1. Brilliance and insight don’t always come as readily as one might expect it to…sometimes we need to allow ourselves to let life take its natural course and when instinct sets in, we can step out from ourselves and examine it..hence the initial “examined life” purpose of this blog. I’m sure many will agree with me that “we” are quite happy to receive whichever form of reflection, whether in essay format or “bite sized” portions. Having said that, I’d like to wish all readers a prosperous 2013 and hope that the new year brings much positive reflection.
