I want to acknowledge that. Annoyingly, I don't want to give specifics. Don't worry, though, this isn't a request for hugs; other people can use those even more than me.
Mainly, I'm admitting that I have a lot to think about, but which I have not been writing about except maybe at most indirectly, in smart-assed ways (especially on Twitter), because it can help to joke.
I'll chalk this up to an insecure moment -- or, at worst, an insecure stretch of time -- and move on. And if I need help doing that, I know who to ask.
