As of today, I am retiring Textuality permanently. The site will remain online, but it will no longer have new posts.
I decided on my morning run to end the blog. It was a sudden decision, but several percolating factors led to it:
- My dissertation writing and activities are ramping up, which make less time for thoughtful posts.
- I've now said much of what is and has been inside me. I don't have much to say right now that's new.
- I'm also not jazzed up about some issues like I used to be. The issues that grab me now have to do with real, meatspace life. I want to focus my mind and energies on home, work, and just living.
- I have distant plans to collect and publish my favorite pieces together in book form. This would be for vanity's sake, not for money or anything like that.
Thanks to everyone who has read and commented here. My sincere and best wishes to you for cool lives, fun with loved ones, love and joy, mind-blowing discoveries...and great music and poetry.
