late Sunday-evening thoughts

I've had a tough time keeping up with Impolitic Eye lately. It's not for lack of ideas or topics I've wanted to tackle. The problem has, instead, been my own focus. It seems like I've gone through a period of extreme distraction — a case of seasonal ADD, if you will — and I'm lucky if I get the laundry folded each week, let alone keep some semblance of order around the house.

Part of the problem, I suspect, is that many of the things I've pondered lately are too personal for this kind of forum, memories and minor demons that I'm not yet comfortable putting out for public consideration. Other topics seem too trivial to warrant the kind of depth I would like to be putting into this blog. And then, at the end of the day, there's the simple fact that there are a lot of demands on my time and attention from waking to sleeping.

I will celebrate my 38th birthday at the end of this week. There are a lot of changes I want and need to make to my life (and Banana's life). They range from developing better fiscal discipline to getting back to photography to giving Impolitic Eye a more focused voice and effort to taking better care of myself. And more, of course.

So bear with me.
