Took the day off of work. Should be back at it tomorrow. Work, that is. And the biking there.
I've been thinking for some time now about a format change for the blog. As much as I enjoy writing about the picayune details of my daily commutes to and fro, I'm beginning to wonder if there's anything there anymore. I mean, there are lots of things literally there- I notice them daily and they are remarkably consistent in their continued existence. Even the change remains the same. But, I've mined that vein for two years now and I'm wondering how much frisson/coal remains. It's gotten comfortable (unlike a coal mine, so I've read from DH Lawrence and such) and like a coal miner after yet another long shift, I think I need to stretch (and bathe).
Accordingly, I've been considering a sabbatical to give myself some time to ponder where I want to take thing (industrial England?) and how I plan to take you all with me (pedicab?) or lose you in a way that allows us to still be friends. Preferably, I don't want to go away for summer vacation and make new friends and have things be awkward when we come back for junior year, like in the setup to any movie about high school kids ever. So, if the posts become less frequent or start taking different formats or if there are fewer or more pictures of poodles (assume more), just know that I'm trying new things to see if anything sticks and consistently amuses me. As always, I welcome your feedback. The blog will still, most likely, be bikey and very DC focused, but beyond that, I'm not exactly sure where it'll end up. Maybe it'll end up, by noon tomorrow, being the same thing as it's been because I'll forget that I wrote this. That'd be hilarious.
