And it lives…

Is this thing on?

It sure is.  Glad to see this old bus remembers how to start up.  And the website runs, too.  😉

I’ve been meaning to begin writing again, this time beginning by narrowing the focus to the compost, the roots, the beginnings of a professional blog that would complement my practice.  The style, format, content, and placement of this will continue to evolve, but unless I discover a better place for it, this is where it will [re]start.

That is all for now.

Ok, this is veeeeery annoying…

Soooo, I can either throw ecto under the bus for not posting the body of this first post to the blog, or I can pretend that I never hit save (I DID!) and what uploaded (a blank post) is what I had.


Regardless, here’s to coming back into the game, distracted, unorganized, desperately still in need of dissertation progress, and ready to kick the sh*t out of anything that interrupts my flow and momentum on writing.

The Blog’s Direction – Away from the [Tech] Heat

Ok, so I’m looking at the blog’s stats (yeah, now THAT’S called procrastination!) and I realized this summer I was getting a lot of hits when I was posting on cell phone this and that. It was hot. I hope I had some observations and questions that were helpful for people.

Then, we moved…twice…technically 3 times, and I didn’t post much. I still haven’t posted much then.

I’ve also realized I had bigger dreams for starting a blog, especially in the wilderness of integral studies, integral ideas and concepts, and those of us who defy easy categorization due to how our minds and souls work.

At the same time, with the intensity of my internship, this always-looming dissertation (please, Self, get going on the proposal, please), the move almost out of the way, two boys under 3 years old (amazing – in what they give to me and how much energy they use!), and the usual stressors of family and such, I haven’t had the time, psychic space, nor the creativity to really pound out posts.

I’m surely not going to keep posting on cell phones just to keep interest. I’ve also realized I’ve almost never posted to other people’s sites, so how in the non-Google world would anyone stumble upon the site?

So, I’ll keep posting the updates on this and that (get ready for a happy post – Samson’s ears have taken a turn for the much better!), but I’d really like to start throwing some raw ideas about this and that in the integral world. The recent move to the land of many people (20 miles outside of NYC) coupled with the economy/state of the country, has me really rolling on sustainable and ecological-friendly ideas for what our government and the rest of us can do to curb out dependence on oil (any oil, regardless of where it’s from) and live more in line with our sustainable selves.

Get ready for random posts. From a divergent mind. Trying to put it all together.

Feel free to post comments, ideas, etc. That’s what this is here for.

Long Break

It’s been a while since I posted. Two moves…or maybe three? Two in the same town and now we’re actually in a place we might not leave for a long time. Maybe. At least no immediate rush and no immediate desire to go somewhere else or better things pulling us in another place.

So I’ll get back to posting soon. A great many things on my plate, including a great many things I want to write about. They might not all fit with the zeitgeist of this blog, but there will be links when things move elsewhere.

I might also add that since I’m now groovin’ with my Curve on Verizon, I’ll likely see an 80% drop in blog traffic. I can’t believe how many people were lookin for information about cell phones. Of note is the fact that where our house is might be the only spot in all of the east where I don’t get full bars on Verizon. Of course…
