- Part of me wants to bury myself in a small hole and not know.
- Part of me wants to dive deep into news stories, blog posts, commentary and wallow in the facts & reactions.
- Part of me (the more-or-less stable piece) has pulled back into “normal world” mode and, though not avoiding, is not enmeshed in all-Boston-all-the-time.
Not sure which is the healthiest or sanest, but in the practical words of Laura Anne Gilman yesterday:
Reminder: if you’re feeling echoes of past Bad Stuff, reading the news out of Boston, it’s ok to look away. You’re not letting anyone down.

She’s right. Just because I don’t look at the photos or videos from the site, I’m not a bad person. Neither are you.
I’ll focus on work today and just being alive.
