One of my ambitions has been to become contributing editor to a serious politically-minded journal.  Not a narrowly partisan one, because that is skewed.  But a politically-minded one nonetheless.

When I’m engaged in journalism, I’m prolific.  I always have much to say.  When I was editor of a student newspaper quite a while back, I often wrote the majority of each issues articles.

My stumbling block to this impulse is frequent involvement in full-length creative works.  A few days ago, I finished work on an opera.  I looked at my blogs, and saw, with one short exception, that my most recent blog had been posted in May.  This was the month in which I had started orchestral score.

What did I miss expressing my opinion on over the past seven months?  Political events flew by in a whirlwind.  We try to take stands, to turn our arguments into actual discourse, and sometimes we miss the mark.  Our views change as we learn more.

So I am back at the blogging wheel, trying again to engage, but trying also to be more accurate.  You will hear from me a bit until I become involved in another intensive creative project.
