I've been admonished for not blogging. I assume that the one who rebuked me would like to see me repent. So in the interest of not disappointing him, here I am.

Truth is, after blogging for nearly every single day in 2008, a few weeks in to '09 I'd begun to feel like I'd said enough for awhile. That it would be good to be quiet for awhile. Plus, I've started some new resolutions that took time away from this now old one.

Furthermore, even though I enjoy the medium, there's an element of blogging that's started to taste sour. It's the ever-increasing elevation of opinion in our culture. The cacophony of subjectivity. So in wondering if I was just adding to all the noise, that added to the desire to take a step back.

It is time that I said something, though. Not today, however. Perhaps next week. Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of my Mom's passing. I'm not totally sure what I think about it. I do know that I'm a little more gloomy lately. A little more lethargic. A little bit reminiscent of all the events that led up to that eventuality last April. I guess that's all I can really say for now, though.

Hopefully soon I'll have more words. And they won't be simply a few more decibels of volume in the midst of all the noise.

Hey brother. I assume that I am one of the ones admonishing you. The only reason is because I like what you have to say. Peace on this anniversary bro. You are a good man.

Hey, III. I know what you mean in terms of the cacophony. I've had a little bit of a blogging drought lately, too.

I can't believe it's already been a year since you're mom's passing.

Hope you're doing well,

Hey Philip. I've been thinking about you and Katie lately because I knew this would be a hard month for you two. Just know that we are thinking of you and praying for you. Much love!
