While it does help me keep in touch with a number of people with whom I would otherwise lose contact, I don't think anyone (myself included) currently benefits from my recording things here. It's not an accurate picture of my life, because I only write sporadically, and usually in certain moods or states that are not representative of my life as a whole.
So: I'm going to take the rest of August off as an experiment. I'll keep reading everyone else's posts, and comment when appropriate, but otherwise I'm going to be quiet. This isn't a tantrum or quitting in disgust, but a carefully measured time away from writing down my disordered thoughts.
I'll see you in September.
