The neglect I have shown my blogs over the past couple of years is the result of multiple causes - less time at my disposal being a primary one - and returning to the blogosphere feels awkward and seems like it demands a "reason". This itself becomes a reason to refrain from contributing to the great online conversation that has made, and still makes, blogging so appealing to many of us. In the meantime, my blogs have been caked over with thousands of spam comments which, at some point, became so overwhelming that I simply gave up trying to delete them.
I suppose the thrust of this blog post is that I am set to attempt yet another foray into the blogosphere. No big promises or broad agendas this time. Just reopening a door to a realm that once brought me great intellectual satisfaction, offered me tough challenges that sharpened my thinking, and provided an opportunity for me to share I ideas I otherwise never would have published.
I have so much material, and no particularly clear sense of where to start. But I remain keenly interested in starting somewhere.
