My Overflowing Inbox

I have 84 messages in my inbox at the moment and almost no energy to respond to them. It’s not that I don’t want to reply to people. It’s mostly that I just can’t think of anything to say. It seems strange to me that I still drag myself onto this website every once in a while to write something, but that I can’t ever get in the right head-space to reply to e-mail. There are folks who have been waiting to hear back from me for a solid month. A month! Maybe even more. And yet, it seems as if the social/correspondence center of my brain has completely atrophied.

I keep telling myself that I’ll get around to this stuff on the weekend. That’s how I’ve been doing it for months now, as a matter of fact. But lately the weekends have been keeping me away from the computer. And then, when I get to the computer, it’s usually to download or upload photographs, or to check the score of the ballgame, or to play Tetris. E-mail, it seems, just requires too much thought.
