I haven’t fallen off the planet.
I haven’t run out of ideas for blog posts, let alone stopped thinking about people, other animals, and the living world we share.
And I haven’t forgotten about all of you, or the good conversations we have here.
I have simply been on hiatus, focusing my time, energy, and attention elsewhere.
Amidst other work, I am writing my dissertation on how people—especially hunters—talk and think about wolves in the western Great Lakes region: Wisconsin and Minnesota in particular. Why this topic? Because I like to steer clear of complexity and controversy, naturally.
I am also digging deep into other questions, making decisions about where my work and writing—and my life, for that matter—are headed next. I expect I’ll have more to say on that front at some point.
Meanwhile, there may be more quiet spells here on my blog.
But there will be some creative ruckus, too.
Maybe some essays of the kind I once posted regularly. Maybe some briefer postcards from my mind and heart. Maybe a poem now and then. Maybe some photography. Up next, a reprint of a thought-provoking article by a fellow vegan-turned-hunter, this one hailing from Australia.
I hope you find some tasty morsels in the mixed bag to come.
