The familiar, inescapable, confusing lethargy is back, only slightly different–I’m inspired, to be sure, moreso than I’ve been in a little while, but the energy isn’t there, my body replacing the usual enthusiasm that comes with being creative with an exhausted malaise, this all-encompassing emotional drain that’s different from the emptiness I usually feel. Some of it is concern (as is natural when one changes careers–although I think everyone would agree that my previous dead-end position was the kind of career that drives even the most vital of men to the worst, Thurber-esque flights of fantasy), some of it is just confusion.

Some of it is fear, although I can’t put my finger on exactly what it is I fear other than…the usual. God, I sound like such a fucking broken record, don’t I? It’d be nice to have something new to be introspective about.
