I rarely write just one of these blogs at a time. Generally, two or three will develop in parallel. Sometimes, a completed entry will seem less than timely (for instance, a happy piece about this unusually mild winter written right before the current frigid week in my neck of the woods), and I'll shelve it until circumstances are more opportune.
Some seem guaranteed to eternal mothballing, however, and one does hope that effort spent on such pursuits will not turn out to be entirely wasted. At the very least, I thought I might share some of their titles:
