2019-10-27 Sunday morning: Creation!

Yesterday was the Sabbath when we begin the yearly Torah cycle with Genesis. I don't go to services these days (too far) but it's as good a time as any to think about new beginnings and creative endeavors.

It's been a year now since I escaped The Undisclosed Location and moved into my current digs in Hillsboro. I've been at my job now for over 9 months and it's likely that I will stay with it for at least a full year. (Beginning in January, I'm going to be taking classes in Computer Science and Calculus.) I've gotten caught up with things like medical and dental checkups that had been neglected for a while, and my bills and debts are getting paid on time. So, overall, my living situation is as stable as I can reasonably expect.

What this means personally is that I've finally got the bandwidth to get back to reading and writing. I've got a number of writing projects lined up (mentally or in notes) for the coming year, some of which will probably get posted here on LJ. Among these is a chapter-by-chapter reading of the Book of Genesis. If I cover an average of a chapter a week, I should be able to finish in roughly a year. (But don't hold me to this.) I've got some notes for Chapter 1 - the six days of creation - drawn up now, and I'll try to get my piece posted here by the end of the day.

More broadly, I'm committing to doing creative work on a daily basis, and posting *something* online on at least a weekly basis.
