Why Do I Blog?
Why do I blog? Really, what do I have to talk about? There isn't all that much of a story to tell. Apart from my writing -- I really don't do much. I spend an appalling amount of time not just under the influence of television but in a falling-down TV-induced haze; television being for me "a form of self-medication, a way of fending off the pains of my own past as well as the continuing agony of my personal life"; my sibling relationship to the former Estelle Freedman was mostly unhappy, at times drastically so, yet we have granted the other a perverse loyalty (when we're not ignoring each other entirely); I putter around my one-room apartment where I have spent most of my adult life; and I, like Donald Trump, worry excessively about money, though Trump's turned it into a career. I just worry about money.
