...and I just realized the last post (prior to this one) on this blog is dated October 2010. Yipe. Anyway, while I apologize for the content-void nature of this post, I figured I should (given the amount of time that has somehow managed to pass since I last wrote anything of substance here) note that I have not quit this blog.
Rather, I've just been in a bit of an "absorb and process" phase lately. A person (at least this person) simply cannot constantly produce output without occasionally pausing to garner and evaluate input. And I don't want to just "post for the sake of posting", as that sort of thing tends to degrade into stuff I personally would never choose to read, e.g., descriptions of what one had for breakfast.
But I do have some new material in the works. I've had a lot of interesting experiences with public transit and being a pedestrian/bicyclist in a very car-centric culture over the past year, so I'd certainly like to visit the subject of transportation. And I have been posting on my cat blog, though of course that's only likely to be of interest to similarly feline-focused folks (any cat-related posts that make it to Existence is Wonderful will have something to do with feline cognition or something similarly sciencey).
...and that is all for the moment. Feel free to comment or e-mail if you have any topic suggestions, too...I can't promise to write about them, but I'm very curious to know what readers (if there are any) are interested in these days.
