k thx

It's not that I don't like blogging, you know. I love it. I love it more when you read what I write and tell me how funny and smart and awesome I am.

But sometimes, in life and on the blog, I get distracted, overwhelmed, unmotivated, for about a million reasons, almost none of them interesting. And then I don't do anything well.

But the cool kids are doing this month-of-gratitude thing. And I'm hoping that, if I post my gratitudes here, every day for a month, I will:
  • Get back into the swing of blogging
  • Get more motivated generally
  • Get happier generally
  • Be more deliberate about what I do and engage with
  • Reengage you people, who I miss, a lot

Now, it's still me. I'm not sure I'm capable of a month of mushiness, even if it is warranted. So, with a little luck, I'll be able to be a little creative in the ways I express my thanks. Maybe there'll be:
  • Photos, or bad drawings
  • Funny stories at my expense
  • Funny stories at others' expense
  • Religion
  • Politics
  • Sex (OK, probably not.)
  • Links to other places on the internet that are even more interesting than this one.
  • Bulleted lists
I don't know. But I'm ready to give it a shot.

Day 1 of my month of gratitude: I'm grateful that I have this space, and that you — yes, you — are reading. And will be extra-grateful if you'll tell me what kind of stuff you want to read, this month and all the time.

I want the occasional fall/early winter weather report from New England. This is one time of the year that really I miss home. Describe your surroundings as part of your posts, whether it's the joy you get from the changing hues of the leaves, or the pissah that it is to shovel snow before Thanksgiving.
