Hey there, friends.
It’s been a while, and for that I must apologize.
I’m not much of a multi-tasker, or plate-spinner, if you will. I can keep one or, at best, maybe two of them spinning. Anything more, and chaos ensues.
The New Plate
Back in December I added a new plate to my collection. You can check it out here if you’d like. In short, it’s a creative design studio, where, among other things, I’ll be building new websites.
As the name (PFC Studios) suggests, I consider it at least in some way affiliated with this blog.
What does that mean exactly? I wish I could say. The two exist for the same reasons, but beyond that I really don’t yet know.
The Old Plate
The important thing I want to say at this point is that “PFC the Old Plate” has not been discarded; I just couldn’t keep it spinning, so it fell.
Honestly, I feel pretty bad about that. At the very least, I wish I’d planned it better and announced that there’d be some sort of break.
The problem is, I didn’t, and still don’t, know exactly what will come after.
It’s like I knew I had to grab the car keys and leave the house for a while, confident I’d be back, and yet, not sure where I was going. It’s no big deal to leave the house if you announce you need some groceries. Announce you’re merely leaving, however, and, at best, you risk your message being misinterpreted.
“Just leaving” means you’re trying to get away from something.
But I’m not trying to get away from something; I’m trying to move toward something. I just couldn’t find a way forward that allowed me to keep both plates spinning.
Having said all that, I still can’t quite tell you what’s next or when it’ll come.
I believe PFC and PFC Studios will one day co-exist, but for the time being my plate-spinning voodoo is mostly expended. I don’t want to make the same mistake twice, so I’m keeping focused on the “new plate” until the risk of it falling is low.
Until that time, I think I need to leave PFC alone. I care about it too much to do it half-way, or just intermittently.
So whatever comes next, and whenever it comes, just know that this isn’t the end. That sounds a lot more melodramatic than I want it, but nonetheless, I think it’s important.
