awfully glad you've reemerged in the blogosphere.

There's something in the water in Vancouver-- or maybe at Brian's house. Every time I go there I encounter a similar phenomenon. Complete blog-block, unable to do justice to the experience. I've not been shy at pointing people to your talk, usually with a comment noting that it both inspired me because it resonated so perfectly with me-- lodged itself in my head and heart-- and because it raised the bar and stakes out beyond my reach. I was heartened to know that I share one facet with you. I'm an early adopter of the "commit then compose" method. In fact, I quite often commit with nothing but (what I feel is) a clever title, usually with alliteration, sometimes with monkeys.

Oh and yes - the meta dance is so important. Lets all meta meta tango....

Gardner, The first thing that comes to me is a series of curse words. You set the bar really high man. Even when you haven't been blogging and get back at it, your prose just goes to the heart of it. I've got two blogs that are going nowhere fast. I blog every day in my head and yet never seem to get it down in writing. My feelings of geek as inferior author stops me... I guess I'm just going to have to express my voice any way I can and let the inferiority just wash over me and be done with it.

The more meta, the betta'!

Gardner, while I must admit to having been slightly worried at the silence, I would honestly have been surprised (especially given all the other demands on your time and energy you face) if you could have avoided that blogging trap. Some things are best left to simmer anyways. Your talk *is* dense, in the best way. It is the kind of density any of us long to fall into, the kind of density you could spend a good part of a career unwrapping and wrapping, like Degas' ballerinas, Picasso's women, Monet's lillies (why am I getting hung up on visual artists? oh well, you get the idea.) I hope to see/hear "that" talk many more times, in many different forms, as it feels like you have found a very rich vein to mine. I'll see you soon. Count on it. Cheers, Scott

@Laura Thanks a bunch. It's great to be back. I'm much sounder and happier when I'm blogging, so why not just-do-it? And combining the careers--that's what so many of us are trying to do. Maybe we have meta-careers? (Or maybe callings are all meta-callings, too.)

So good to see you blogging again! I know what you mean about tending the blog in your head. I was doing that for the last week. It's on my list to go listen to/watch your talk, especially since it combines my two careers quite nicely. Welcome back!
