Stay Tuned

If blogging really is like television, then most of you, dear readeres, would be fiddling with the antenna or calling your cable company trying to get a better signal. Or maybe, you’d just change the channel….

The last few days have been incredibly busy with writing an article (and starting a second one), applying for jobs, and grading papers all requiring serious attention and energy, which has left me feeling like I’m neglecting my blog. I know these other things are more important in the long run, but I do feel a sense of frustration when I’m not writing regularly to the chutry experiment. I know the frustration has something to do with feeling conscious of time rushing past and being unable to unpack an idea or even to review a film (not that I’ve had time to see very many). It may be that my consciousness of time via blogging–my attempt to impose a coherent narrative over something that is decidedly chaotic and random–is at odds with my current experience of things. Or maybe I’m just really tired.

    It makes sense.

    If the blog is the place where you take your daily moment to consider the myriad moments that make up the day, when even that one insulated ritual is lost, then things have become too crowded.

    Things are starting to slow down a little. I just have one or two things (I’ll discuss them later) that need my immedaite attenion… I’m certainly looking forward to Thanksgiving Break.
