Back at the start of this month I renewed the secondlifeshrink.com domain for another year. As I handed the $50 over to WordPress I resolved that I would try to start posting regularly again, confident that I could manage a long, thoughtful essay every couple of weeks or so.
Yet here we are on the evening of the 28th, and I’m hurriedly penning yet another apologetic space-filler. It’s not for want of inspiration; at various points in the last few weeks I have mentally composed pieces on some of our favourite subjects, like the effects of internet addiction and its treatment, the unreliable nature of memory in the digital age, and the political situation in Europe, but none have made it into print. Normally I would plead overwork as an excuse for this lamentable state of affairs, but I’ve actually been off work most of the last month, and, perhaps predictably, my productivity hasn’t been improved by a strict regime of getting stoned and reading comic books.
Anyway, onwards and upwards. We do have a potentially exciting election coming up, which should give me something to write about, and I’m planning to stay straight for the foreseeable future, which will help with my focus, so I’m sure SLS will soon be back on track…
