Yom Kippur 5769

Hi, all--I wrote this yesterday and then thought better of putting it up, because it seemed like I could just WRITE already. But Susan put up a similar post, so I changed my mind.

About this time last year I checked out from this blog, and I've been coming back to it very fitfully. Yom Kippur to Yom Kippur, it was an intensely hard year on several fronts, one I know I'll still be trying to make sense of for years to come. Very little of it was bloggable, some because it was intensely private, and not only for me, and some of it because blogging it could realistically have put me and mine at risk of physical harm. That didn't leave me feeling very free to use this space, but I miss taking the scraps out of my head and spinning them into something to put up in front of the little bitty world. I'm not sure exactly where it's going to take me, but I'm starting November early this year. I may finish early, too--retail season and all that--but I'm hoping it'll be more like I get into a groove I can stick with.

And I hope everyone who fasted had an easy one.

From one navel gazer to another, here's to a year of words.

Remember, there's a lot of people who've got your back in November.

Oh, Susan, there was supposed to be a link in there to my last year's unofficial commitment to the daily-blog-thing. I fixed it now.

November *does* kick my ass biochemically, though, so starting the blog-a-day thing now might be good.

I'm looking forward to reading more here, AND at Susan's. My blogging has slowed as the growing season draws to a close -- my cooking has become sporadic for a lack of abundant raw materials, quite literally! (Hm. I think I feel a post coming on now . . .)
