[insert typical "sorry I don't blog here more often" paragraph]
The fact of the matter is that I am still writing, rather a lot, over at Making Light, a blog owned by my friends Patrick and Teresa Nielsen Hayden1.
This is kind of unfair to everyone who keeps looking here for news of me. I know this. I'm going to start doing pointers to Making Light when I've posted something there that people here might be interested in, and hanging out here for people who want to talk about those things with me rather than a large crowd of strangers2.
My most recent post is about the quilt that I made this spring: Works and Days of Hands. It's also about the process of making something like that, and how process and design mirrored each other for me.
Another post I really enjoyed writing was Op anger tale, which is an exploration of the relationship between a particular Dutch dialect and Wikipedia.
One thing I've been talking about over there, rather a lot, has been the US health care situation. The conversation can get quite heated from time to time, of course, but that heat has certainly caused me to clarify and reaffirm my own beliefs in this matter.
- Pushing Back
- Been lied to so long you wouldn't know the truth if it came up and kissed you on the mouth
- Fighting fire with fire: an email forward
- I'll show you mine if you'll show me yours
- Touching back to principles
- That phrasing makes it sound like we were friends, and then I pitched up on their blog. Really, it was the other way round.
- Though many of my friends here are also friends on Making Light, it's a smaller group.
