Hi. It’s been almost a year of total radio silence. Sorry about that. As many of you know and most of the rest of you probably suspect, my absence has resulted from life becoming stable again. That’s a good thing for me, for my kids, for trucking on down the road. Not such a good thing for my writing.
But I *might* post again soon. Might. Maybe. Possibly.
Something struck me today and I may need to write about it. So, so, so, so much has happened since I last posted. I’ve missed birthdays and anniversaries and milestones and achievements and kid funnies and love and grief and all the good and bad stuff in between. There were times I wanted to write. I didn’t. There were times I meant to write. I didn’t. Times people asked me to write. Didn’t. Missing all those things—NOT writing about those things–made it harder for me to write about … anything. Kinda like when you get out of the habit of going to the movies for awhile? And then it becomes, “If this isn’t going to be THE VERY BEST cinematic two hours of my life, then I am absolutely not going to bother.” That’s what my writing has become this past year. I’ve been too stable and too content and too “normal” to be a very good writer these days. There’s been no need and no desperation and therefore, no posts.
For those of you prone to concern, I’m still stable and content and feeling pretty normal (whatever that means). DOn’t worry. I just saw something today that I may want to write about anyway.
I’m not linking this anywhere, which probably means that only the 3 or so folks who still have subscriptions to this blog will even be aware of a new post going up. And that’s fine. I just wanted to tell you 3 that I might write something soon. Maybe.
