It is always mildly embarassing to visit my blog and notice that months have passed since my last post. Of course, I silently chide myself for lacking the sheer grit to persevere and write. And then I get the sinking feeling that I don’t have a single original thought! (And Lord knows what that means for my chances at life.)

Today, however, I am going to rationalize away my sporadic blogging as a virtue and not a vice. No more victimhood for me (till next month at least):

Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you’ve got to say, and say it hot. DH Lawrence
