I wonder if Ebbing and Flowing best describes my writing consistency. As I look at what I’ve written over the past few months, and then look back over a longer period of time, I definitely see some ebbs and some flows.

But, as I sit here today, writing this post, it’s clear that I was really just getting ready. More than a month has gone by, with little output from me.
