This is the end
As ex-readers may have noticed, this is an ex-blog.
The end came quickly, as I thought it might, but kind of hoped it wouldn’t.
I’ve got lots to do, and not that much time. Some of what I do will change people’s lives for the better, and some of it won’t. But if there’s one thing Dr Rieux in La Peste* and Rossmann in Amerika taught me, you’ve got to bleeding try. So the blogging’s got squeezed to the point of no return.
It’s not the end of me completely in written form; I’m planning to pop up in written form in other places, and I’ve not forgotten my commitment to part 2 of the Habermas post, or my follow up to Gove as fascist post, but both these starter essays, and others, have got me reading more voraciously, scribbling more incoherently and even thinking thoughts occasionally, more than I thought they would, and blog-based follow ups that no-one reads anyway now no longer seems to fit.
If you’re stuck for something to read, go re-read Stumbling and Mumbling. Chris is basically right.
