There’s a lot of New Years resolutions sorts of posts around. I guess this is mine.
Network more. Burst some bubbles. Challenge everything I think I know for sure. Focus on specific objectives. Kill some distractions. Tolerate even less bullshit. Read more full books and not mostly articles, news and blogs. More theory, way more praxis. Drink the bottle of absinthe I’ve had in the cupboard for ages (but not drink it all at once). Dance flamenco again. Do more drawing. Make a little film of some kind. Maybe start some kind of podcast. Get rid of half my stuff. Make decisions about where I’m moving to when the time comes. Learn whatever language I have to in order to live there. Focus on some stuff. Forget about some other stuff.
Some of the specifics relevant to this site:
I am broadening the scope of this blog to include more psychology, philosophy, and social and political commentary but will continue with writing about Buddhist things as well but I can’t compartmentalize the way I used to nor do I wish to. It’s a false categorical position anyways.
There are over 100 unfinished pieces sitting in the blog queue right now that I want to get on here too so that’s going to be some work with all the new stuff I’m working on here and elsewhere. It will be a good exercise. I’m still doing other stuff on the NellaLou blog. It had occurred to me to amalgamate the two but that one is more about the creative writing (fiction, poetry, etc) and a lot more subjective stuff (as well as the self-indulgent aspect of diary-esque sort of blogging).
I don’t know how it will go. I just know I really really want to write a lot about everything presently. Will just have to let it unfold as it does.
