I've been awful quiet online these last few years (despite being deep in the field—more on that later), but I've really come to miss personal publishing. The challenge and reward of building a meaningful online presence balanced with chasing meaningful life "in the real world" is all too exciting right now.

Getting back to this blank slate reminds me what self-imposed mental gymnastics can manifest before pressing the "publish" button, too. Toiling over phrasing endlessly. Keeping the message clear. Avoiding sounding like an idiot. All are important, but none should get in the way of getting something out there.

The empty page feels completely invigorating again! I'm choosing to make the effort to do it, excited to keep some of my time focused around this.
