Sloooow Means --- Slooooow.

I wasn't kidding about the sloooooow blogging around here. This is what happens when I hit the mid-point of a new project: I slide into this big, deep well of silence, the better to commune with my subject and all its complexities.

So, no, I've not abandoned my blog. It won't be one of those ether-orphans, adrift and abandoned for all eternity.

(Okay, my brain is conjuring images of "2001: A Space Odyssey," one of my all-time favorite films. If you've never seen it, well, what the hell's the matter with you??) (I first saw it when it came out, a bazillion years ago. I saw it three times that weekend. Hey! I was in high school. Teenagers are, um, drama k/queens.)

Just think of me, if you do at all, as swimming in a sea of ideas and images and characters and facts and words. I'm happy!
