I was going to write something today...

And then I thought I can't be bothered. It's a combination of lethargy, anxiety and lack of inspiration.. or maybe more like having things in my head that are so important while being so pointless at the same time that I can't bring myself to share it with the world, or even to go so far as to type the words into the browser. I just can't do it. So I'm not going to.

Or did I just do it?

Here's a word that's probably new to you: paralipsis.

A combination of "lethargy, anxiety and lack of inspiration". You know something? I know all about that. I know intellectually that in terms of having something to say, we're never short of something, as our heads are always full of weird and wonderful stuff. So the trick, I think, is to ride roughshod over our emotions and personal objections to our ideas, and just blurt them out. Did you know, after each post I publish, first thing I do is cringe? I'm even getting self-conscious about this comment, so I'll stop.
