I’d like to apologize for this blog—all the blahblahblahing, all the self-involvement, all the making nothing of nothing and asking you to read it, most of the time without any really good pictures even (like maybe this one, from this morning’s Times, of artwork by Eva Hesse, who died, by the way, in her thirties of brain cancer). It’s just that I got fired and found myself with nothing to do and this itch to write again. So that’s why. I don’t think I have anything to say about much, but I thought I might try to capture a little bit of fragility here and there: remind myself of my lost heart, maybe. Write it down to figure it out. I thought maybe you might want to join me. That’s all.

  1. I’m a friend of Lynn’s and when she said you had a blog, I said, “oh I hate blogs, they’re so self involved…”
    I’ve been reading now daily. And, for what its worth, the reason I like it (besides the enviably good writing) is because I don’t find it self involved in the least.
    If there’s navel gazing on these pages, I’ve missed it. All I find are great stories that are as much about the characters as they are about the narrator. Which is perfection. Don’t apologize and definitely don’t stop. I, for one, love your blog.

  2. Oh, wow, Christy–that’s super sweet. Thank you for telling me. (I’ve actually written another post that I’m considering not putting up because it’s so about me, and writing, which is…uch. Anyway, thanks again. Nice to know you’re there!
