The distances were too long. I was working on a screed about the new Lizzie Macguire movie, about why the Rank Strangers, The Most Underrated Band in the Known World, doesn't have a website, on chess and writing. The difference of tactical vs. strategic mindset, and why I just love the Bishop's Opening. Maybe a little too much. But all the worlds tumbled upon each other and I found hard to coherent things together. Other works, other peppers consuming me. I'm here, and I'll try to be here -- fuck, it's sunny outside -- as long as you, dear reader, will be too. I'm sure it will be a good run.
