Several months ago, my substantial posts sort of faded out. Two months ago, I made a few mobile posts. A little after that, within one week, five people asked me if my blog was dead. This was right at the end of the school year, when I was flooded with finals to grade and end-of-year events to attend, and I didn't have a moment to put a decent post together. Now I'm back at Notre Dame for the summer and utterly overwhelmed with work.
I don't intend to let this blog die. I enjoy writing it and, I'm told, others occasionally enjoy reading it. At the moment, however, I barely have time to do the work I need to do and make phone calls to my family and best friends.
Thus, to answer the query posed to me many times recently, no, Theophany is not dead. It is officially on hiatus, probably until the middle of July. At that point, the deluge of paper, projects, meetings, and events will have settled. Until then, I need to focus on keeping my head over water (yeesh). There may be the occasional mobile post since those require about 30 seconds of my time. Also, I'm still reading my blogs (though not as thoroughly as I once did) and sharing fun and interesting items in the thingy in the side bar.
Otherwise, Dear Readers, trust I am well and happy despite the sensory overload, and keep me in your prayers as I keep you in mine.
