A clarification (or a grovel or a snivel, depending on how you feel about me) --

The reason I'm withdrawing from the media and the news these days has much more to do with my emotional state (fragile, hopeless, pretty much through with the whole enterprise of me) than with any disinterest or judgment. In other words, it's a selfish thing. (Quelle surprise!)

Right now music and fiction seem to be the only conveyances of thought or emotion that instruct me in the ways we carry on and that I can tolerate, even though both are also capable of eliciting spontaneous (and embarassing, when you're driving down MoPac or reading at work) tears.

Someday I'll get back to following the news. For now I'm just glad that other people do.

Now I have to get my ass to work.

HOW DAST THOU! What, I don't know. I need to get my ass to the library (and return some books) and get some books to read. I am feeling all fiction-y too. Well I usually am, it's more unusual for me to not read fiction. But I get in those moods as well! You're welcome.
