So uuuhhhh. It’s been awhile.
I couldn’t even begin to tell you where I’ve been or what I’ve been doing or what is preoccupying my mind of late. Mostly because 3 and a half months is a long time to cover, and the distance feels vast.
But where to pick up then?
It is 3 am on the morning of Christmas Eve, and things are quiet. Now is as good a time as any I suppose.
I’ve fallen out of love a bit with blogs lately. With my blog(s), with other blogs, with blogging in general. I was considering shutting up shop, when I got a lovely comment from Julia.
“perhaps you have found an exciting new life following your holiday, but in case you have just not felt motivated to write…. you should know people out there are reading”
Julia, if you are still reading this, a full month (almost to the day) after you commented, then thank you. Your comment came at the right time, right when I was thinking “What’s the point?”. And then I realized that there is no point to blogging except blogging itself, and that never stopped me before. So I decided not to give up on blogging just yet. An eight year hobby deserves a better chance than that.
But it’s not just blogging that is falling to the wayside: I am not returning phone calls, not even picking up the phone most times. I don’t email back. I forget to text. It all just feels so….so…..not what I need right now.
What I do need is anyone’s guess. If you find it, can you let me know: a) what it is; b) where to find it; and c) if it costs much (because times are tight right now).
In the meantime, I will tell you what I have been busying myself with while I’ve been avoiding phone calls, emails, texts and this blog:
- Yoga. (Specifically hot yoga.)
- Taking my dog to the park.
So, as for an “exciting new life”, Julia? Not so much.
A quiet, serene, maybe too-boring-to-blog life? Yes, maybe that. Maybe just that.
I’ll be back before the end of the year with the year’s alphabet roundup, my own little blog’s traditional nod back to the year that just passed. In the meantime, if you need to brush up: 2006, 2007,2009, 2010, 2011.
Merry Christmas everyone!
