One year-ish later…

My goodness, it’s been nearly a year since I’ve written here! Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised, but I didn’t mean to drop the blog altogether. Whisper: I’ve written a journal which amounts to a small book in that time (roughly 50,000 words now), mischievously titled How to be Estranged. I may share pieces of it here going forward, but we’ll see. Merely giving it that title set me in the right mindset to do it… a mindset not at all ambitious, which I want to preserve.

In the same vein, I’ve made an outline for an Introverts’ Planner. 🙂 Or, well, I’ve played with the idea. My thinking was this: that as someone who loves planners but finds many themes a bit much, it might be nice to have a wu wei-ish one. Some would think the very idea of a planner disagrees with no effort, but not me. Wu wei is more about the way you do the things you do.

I’ve also taken some strolls,

and cooked a few fantastic meals, like this Rainbow Jeon, from The Korean Vegan.


I’ve been watching Chinese wuxia, like The Untamed.

Other things too.

And did I mention surviving Covid while working inside a freaking STORE? There was (and is!) that as well. And yes, I do dress like an assassin.

So, hello again.
