I've been writing a lot and it's piling up on my desktop, but none of it feels finished. I'm moving it out anyway, clearing off desk little by little, and maybe some of this will turn into something.

But I've enjoyed my little internet hiatus here these past couple weeks. It's almost hard to come back.

Go to the ant;
ponder her ways and grow wise.
no one gives her orders,
no overseer, no master,
yet all through the summer she gets her food ready,
and gathers her supplies at harvest time.
How long do you intend to lie there, idler?
When are you going to rise from your sleep?
A little sleep, a little drowsiness,
a little folding of the arms to lie back,
and poverty comes like a vagrant
and, like a beggar, dearth.

Proverbs 6:6-11
