Tis the Season... return to blogging. It seems that every year I drift away from the blog for a few weeks or even months during the fall semester. In fact, I admit it: I've been a spotty, unreliable blogger for years now. I  don't mind that. But now it's time for me to knuckle down and do some creative work. I've cut myself off from the dazzling distractions of Facebook (my friends post the best, most fascinating links!) during the daytime hours, by handing over my account keys (read: password) to my wonderful, supportive wife. So here I am, writing. Listening to music. Wondering if anyone is out there.

I never really paid attention to Kraftwerk back in the day, but suddenly they seem just the thing to set the tone for the novel I'm writing. Here's the song of the moment:

The lyrics, in their entirety: "I program my home computer, beam myself into the future."

Enjoy! Endure.
