It's odd, after the draining days of the Terri Schiavo conflagration, I have felt less enthusiastic about blogging as agressively as I have in the past. It isn't that I don't have things to say, and I've still posted often. But I haven't had much interest in matters political in the past couple of weeks or so. I'm vaguely aware of the stories in the headlines, but I haven't watched a newscast since early last week, and I haven't read a news magazine or newspaper in the same period of time. It isn't that I find such things distasteful, only that I think I lack the energy or focus to pay attention. On a number of levels, I have focused on more personal matters and have blogged accordingly. I have no idea if that appeals to those who read this blog regularly, but all I can do is to write what interests me. I'm just grateful to those who chose to continue to read. Thanks.
