I'm in a strange space lately. I feel unusually private. I've sent more private e-mails in the past week than I have in years. But there's little I feel comfortable sharing here. Everyone who blogs consistently for a while seems to go through phases like the one I'm presently in, so I'm not particularly worried. Still, it feels strange that I have, to quote one of the examiners from my Ph.D. qualifying exam, "plenty to say, but not here."
