It sure has been a while.

For just under twelve years I kept this place going. I was fourteen when I hit that publish button for the first time, and had just turned twenty-six when I last did. Twelve years of throwing my thoughts out into the world, and then suddenly I didn’t have anything worth saying anymore.

It’s strange though. I feel oddly disconnected from this place now in a way I haven’t before.

In 2017 I still felt connected to the things I had written in 2005. I didn’t always agree with them, but I knew they were things that I had once said and believed and typed out.

As I scan over this place on the penultimate day of the decade, it doesn’t feel real. It feels like all of the words here were written by someone else, on a different planet entirely.

So, where have I been? What have I been up to?

I’m not going to get into that. This is a Prologue, not an Epilogue. I’m not sure whether I’ll resume using this place, but if I do, I’m going to be looking forward as much as possible – not back.

Onto the next decade, folks.
