State of the Ed

I know it’s been ages since I last wrote here. There have been a number of reasons for this. I hadn’t planned to go into silent hibernation for so long. Part of it was my motivation for writing and posting to my blog, which I’ll get to soon. Seeing as I’m not in Japan, and won’t be there in the foreseeable future, this space is no longer going to be about the land of the rising sun. Instead, I’m going to be posting more about my art practice, as I try to return to the path of being primarily an artist, as opposed to someone who identifies themselves based on their current “money job” and secondarily as an artist. Oh yeah, and rants about England. I’m likely to be posting lots of those.

I will probably be making batches of posts on days that I get to the internet cafe, as opposed to the daily posts that I did from Japan. It’s technically feasible for me to upload the whole bunch at once and set them up to go live on a daily basis, but that seems a bit contrived to me. Instead, you’ll have control over whether or not to continue reading to the end of the day’s post cluster.

I’m not sure how frequently I’ll be posting. It depends a lot on how things go with the projects I’m working on, but there’s more about those in other posts. As some of you know, I only have occasional internet access, and have been known to go as much as five weeks between email checks. As such, you can expect a response to emails or comments, but not necessarily a quick one. Lately I’ve been going online once a week but that could change without notice. I talk about my internet situation in depth in my post about why I haven’t been blogging.
