The Lonely Pedestrian

minding the gap and operating on time since 2006

Mid-Semester Mini-Breakdown
Recent family events, most especially the passing of my Aunt Maryellen, have been stirring rather disorderly thoughts about ability, mobility, self-care, acceptance and the perils of family.

School is busy, the internet is chock full of information to absorb, and I find myself less and less able to devote time to discussing the issues that motivated this journal at its beginning. 5 years ago I was living alone, car-less in a Colorado suburb and working to support myself. Now I am living with family, attending graduate school in one of the most intensely developed and pedestrian friendly metropolitan areas in the United States and finding myself uncomfortably dependent on my family.

The issues are very different and the time I have to myself is far less than it was before. I am not certain I can do these topics justice right now and equally uncertain whether I will even want to do so publicly in the future.

In the meantime, you can find me and my variable obsessions on Twitter @lonepedestrian.
