As many of you have surely noticed, things have been pretty slow around here of late. There are a lot of reasons for this (school, work, etc.). However, I'm sure that if I were properly motivated, these obstacles could be overcome -- or at least managed better than they have been recently. This leads me to the somewhat uncomfortable realization that I'm not sufficiently motivated to run this project the way that it should be run. Over the last month, I've been able to post a few articles. But, clearly, both quantity and quality have been suffering. I've tried to work through it, to see if just grinding through an uninspired period would lead to greener pastures. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to have worked.

Therefore, I've decided to take a little break.

I've been quite proud of a lot of the work that I've done here and over at TIA. As I've thought about it, I've realized that I need some time away from this if I'm going to maintain the standards I've set for myself. It will allow me to read some new ideas, develop new insights, and simply re-energize my passion for this work. The only way I can do that is to stop until I'm ready to begin again. I'll know when that happens.

So -- that's it for now. But, don't worry. Like the great gropinator -- I'll be back.
