I have returned to using this blog for everything. Splitting them all up made me feel atomized and a little paralyzed. (And a little scandalized by the WordPress fees!)
Doris Lessing’s novel The Golden Notebook (1962) has had an enormous influence on me. I so admire and long for the perfect notebook system — or blog system — with clear textual boundaries for separate subjects. I always forget, though, that the topics of the notebooks overlapped, and that in the end unifying them into one golden notebook was necessary for an integrated healthy mind/life.
