Sorry I haven't written anything profound (or even interesting) lately. Part of it is that I haven't had a whole lot of time on the computer. I've been grading, and trying to spend time with my family, and even watching some television. Part of it is that I've become acutely conscious of having an actual audience. After the Teaching Carnival went up, I got a good spike of hits, and even after that died down, I seemed to have increased numbers for a while. So I felt like I couldn't just write what I was thinking. I had to write SOMETHING INTERESTING. Which was just too much pressure to put on myself.
So, I just need to relax and write what I feel like writing.
