Not much happening on Otagosh lately? Yeah, I know. It's been a time to focus on other things and cogitate on whether the enterprise is worth pursuing, and if so, where to from here... and to be honest, it's been great to just set the blog to one side for a while and get on with other stuff.
I intend Otagosh to continue, but a bit of a "freshen up" probably wouldn't hurt. It's amazing that so many people (apparently including even you, gentle reader) still bother to check the blog out, and presumably find the material here of some interest. The original focus of my obsession - the ongoing, god-forsaken soap opera of the Armstrong sect(s) - has long since waned; though it's hard not to want to sneak a peek, as Lot's better-half did, back to the devastation from time to time. Those who ignore history...
In more recent times, fueled by an irrational desire to "do" theology - and acquire some basic insight into the field of biblical studies (minus the delusions that came with the funda-literalist package) - the focus turned from the shattered Empire to wider concerns. Now that I have an impressive looking piece of paper to prove that I'm not a complete doofus in that domain, and in the refreshing absence of slave-driving university staff wielding whips and deadlines, it may be time to tweak things here a bit.
So, we'll see where it leads.
