The time between Christmas and the new year exists for me in a kind of temporal stasis. Nothing happens, nothing needs to be done, and I float, timeless, between the old year and the new. This illusion of timelessness gives me the space to look back on the previous year and contemplate the one coming in order to assess where I am, where I’m going, and how to get there. It’s painful, peaceful, and inescapable.
One of the things I’ve been meaning to do for months (but never got around to) was to get my own site up and running so that I would have a central place to put reviews, essays, thoughts and any additional content or misc stuff to do with my videos, SFF, or whatever. And that’s pretty much what this place is. At the moment it’s pretty bare bones – I’m working on adding all my links to the SF history pages, I’m planning a page for recording all the short stories I read each year, and then there will be the blog.
It isn’t much but it’s something. It is a beginning, a jumping off point, a place to start that which will be. It’s alive.
