It’s been a bit over a year, and I think I’m ready to give the blog another try. I feel like there are enough interesting things I can write about to keep things lively. It won’t all be on one subject, so as always, you’ll need to pick and choose what interests you.
After a year of silence, I feel like I owed at least something of an explanation for why I stopped writing. It wasn’t just boredom, or lack of time in the day. I’m a diehard Yankees fan. Always have been. When I wrote my last post, the Yankees were getting ready to enter a challenging playoff series against the Texas Rangers.
I set about to write a post about my beloved Yankees. It should have taken me a matter of minutes as one of my favorite subjects. But it took me forever. The words just didn’t come freely.
We had lost my aunt to cancer just days before, and the pain amongst our family was unbearable. I thought getting back to writing would be cathartic. I was wrong. So many things in the world seemed more important at that moment than the Yankees. Like hugging my daughter, my father, my wife, my uncle, my cousins.
A year later, the pain is still there. But, we’re raising more money to fight cancer, and that’s a good thing. I’m sure you’ll see that message here from time-to-time, and I hope you’ll do your part to help.
For now, I hope you enjoy the writing.
