And Then I Fell Off The Face Of The Earth
For a week. Or so. Accidentally. Accidentally, on purpose. I’ve never wanted to be ‘that blog’, just as I’ve never wanted to write ‘that post’. You know the one. Flakey blogger writes heartfelt apology for their absence and recommits to a relationship they are clearly finding unsustainable. Only to produce substandard, hurried content and inevitably fall off the wagon again, and again, and again. I’ve endeavored to do it differently. Since this blog is so much about my life, more so perhaps then I ever realized or intended, I thought I could keep the lines of communicado open. Keep peeps in the know. With what’s going on in said life, and how that may or may not impact my posting schedule. That theory worked pretty well when I posted 5 days a week. Then four. Then two or three-ish, under which circumstances I really could no longer live with myself. Momentum gone. Blog interrupted.
My life has not embarked on some exciting new trajectory. Not hardly. Not yet. Rather here’s where I’ve been. Rain and afghans, old favorite books, not iPads, dogs, always with the dogs, and no writing. I find myself in need of input, unable to produce any output. There are things in my life I can not share with you. Not yet. Not prudent. Leaving us at an impasse, and me with a little revelation about my writing. How much of it is what’s in the forefront of my brain at any given moment in time. Turns out, if I can’t share that, I ain’t got much. Sorry. Unless I want to write about dogs and chickens in perpetuity. I don’t. My dogs only do so many endearing things. The Ladies only get out so much.
I don’t know how long this will last. I’d like to say I’m rip roarin’ to go after my stolen week off. I’m not. My time away allowed me to muster this, to close out No-Spend Month, and maybe address another dog topic or two on my mind. I’ll make no grandiose claims beyond that. Hopefully that keeps this from being ‘that post’ and me from ‘that blogger’.
Will it keep you, loyal reader, interested enough to stick around?
