As you can see, this blog is basically defunct. I may bring it back someday. For now, I make my once-a-year appearance on November 24 to say thanks to everyone in my life. As far as updates go, I’ll say: I’m very happy. I’m not writing much these days, so, out of practice as I am, I’ll keep this simple. Thank you to those of you who have hung out with me, had fun with me, worked with me, talked to me, and cared about me in the last year. As I do so often, I’m going to sleep tonight profoundly happy and secure thanks to the love that so many people constantly show me. Thank you to all of you for the first 25 years of my life, and especially this last one.
