A welcome and an explanation
January 13, 2011

So I’ve decided to start blogging regularly again.

For those of you who have followed this over the last few years (though I haven’t written much in several months at least), I’m resisting the urge to write a big explanation of why I decided to change things up again.  I’ll just say that I miss writing, and I’d like to do it more regularly than I have been.  I also want a place to share other thoughts/articles/projects I’m working on that is at least a little less obvious than facebook.  And I wanted a bit of a fresh start, which is why I’ve archived all my previous posts.  So that’s that.  Welcome, and comment away.

The title of this blog comes from a small little poem by Madeleine L’Engle, one of my all-time favorite authors:

This is the irrational season
When love blooms bright and wild.
Had Mary been filled with reason
There’d have been no room for the child.

I realize that it’s a Christmas poem, and we are well into January.   I don’t mind.  I love it anyway.
