Boring Can Be Better

Inspiration for this blog has been hard to come by lately, but maybe that’s actually a good sign, since it means there are no major crises in my life. I’ve noticed I’m not the only one who’s been slacking — a few of the blogs I read regularly haven’t been updated in a while either. It’s interesting that my public writing (this blog) and private writing (my journal) often mirror each other, and while there are things I write privately that I don’t share publicly, it’s been a while since my last journal entry too. The bottom line: life is kind of boring these days.

But I’ll take boring. One of my college classmates passed away unexpectedly last week, and while I didn’t know him all that well, it was still a shock to think of someone my age dying so suddenly (the guy was only 35!) I don’t want to get into all the feeling-a-sense-of-mortality stuff, so suffice it to say that boring is not a bad thing.
