Well, as you can see, I'm making an effort to update this thing more often. I think for a long time, I've felt like I needed to wait until I had something important to say. Unfortunately, that calls into question what part of me is deciding what's important, and exposes me to my own hubris in assuming that what I did post was important.
This is actually an amusing thought, because it's a common assumption in the psychoanalytic world that anything a client says is important. They'll point to the truly staggering number of things one could say at any given moment, yet one chose to say X. That would have to mean that by at least some measure of importance, X was in fact the most important thing on one's mind at the time.
I used to think that that was teleological ... um, call it blather ... but ... I've seen a fairly large number of cases where it was true. Even if I argued that one could make animal noises or talk about trivia if they didn't want to give away what was important to them, the analysts would still say that that revealed how important it was to conceal something. Especially in a therapy setting where the cooperation of the client can be assumed (because they're paying to be there), it's hard to ignore their argument.
So I guess by now the question is, what's so important that you had to write three paragraphs before you could get near it? ;-)
And I guess I still don't know (can't bring it to consciousness), despite a growing urge to do so, that shows in my wanting to update the blog more.
