Sorry, no Sci-Friday this week …

Don’t take this the wrong way, I’m not trying to make current events about me. I’m just not up for posting anything. Between the protests, the virus, and everything else that’s going wrong, my heart just isn’t in it.

Yesterday was June 4th and I should have been all over the latest #PitMad broadcast but … I dunno, I just couldn’t. People are suffering, dying. I felt very uncomfortable with the idea of going ‘Hey – look at my book!’ with everything that’s happening right now.

And that’s not to say I’m going to start talking about George Floyd or Coronavirus, either. I’m not going to pretend that I have more to say about this than others, and I’m not going to pretend that my voice is more meaningful than theirs.

So if you’re feeling the emotional weight of this moment, if you feel like that weight is overwhelming, know that you aren’t alone. Stuff gets to me, too.

I have other things to talk about, I’ll get to them after I take a mental breather. I hope you’re safe, and your family is safe. Let’s pick this up next week.
