Once upon a time, I broke a longish blog silence with a post about homeschooling, public schooling, and depression. And I sat back and wondered . . . what will people say? Honestly, most of the time people don’t say much about my blog posts. Maybe I’ll get a couple of likes, a couple of […]
My blog is a dusty, neglected corner of the internet these days, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. Writing and I have had an increasingly complicated relationship recently.
