Whatever’s on my mind…

… and an odd mind it is. I’ve stuck almost entirely with responses to “intelligent design” creationism on my other blog, Bounded Science. This is my place to hold forth on life, the Universe, and all that.

What’s recently most on my mind regarding my mind is my diagnosis, just two months ago, with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder — Primarily Inattentive (I’m not at all hyperactive). This explains so many things that I have long hated about myself. In particular, I’ve struggled with writing since the first grade. Things have gotten much worse in recent years, and I’ve been deriding myself as “The Ineffectual Intellectual.” Hopefully I can start letting go of the self-blame that’s been with me for as long as I can remember.

I’ve spent an absurd amount of time on this tiny bit of writing. I meant to explain “Accidentally American,” but I went off-task. Forgive me, as I try to forgive myself.
