You've probably noticed that things have kind of slowed around here lately. The reason for this is two-fold: It's mostly because taking care of Inara during the day has become quite a bit more work since she figured out that she can be mobile. But it's also because, to be very honest, I'm going through one of those "writer's block" periods, where I let what's going on in my personal life affect my output here. It's nothing overly serious; I'm just sort of down these days -- a combination of the depression caused by my still constantly shifting hormones in the wake of the surgery from a couple of years ago and the uncertainty that just about everyone's feeling right now given the state of the economy.
The end result is that, aside from my passion for music, nothing's really moving me these days. A while back, I might've been inclined to mine these feelings for some decent material for this site, and maybe it's a testament to just how crappy I'm feeling right now that I can't seem to. But I'd like to avoid turning this thing into a public therapy session anyway -- so maybe that's for the best.
Either way, for the time being I'm making myself a little quieter than usual. Trust me: I'm sure this won't last and I have no doubt that very soon -- anytime really -- something will inspire me and things will get back to normal around here. Thank you so much for bearing with me and for continuing to visit my little corner of the internet in the meantime. Honestly, the support I've received from readers of Deus Ex Malcontent -- especially the roster of regulars (and you know who you are) -- is appreciated more than you'll ever know.
Thanks for reading.
