I’ve been avoiding writing this, well some of it (The second part.). That’s not the sole reason for not having written anything here recently. Life has been a bit hectic lately, the normal single-mom-trying-to-rule-the-world stuff combined with attempts to acquire work (The traditional, non-freelance type, more on that another time!) and so on have kept me from feeling any bit creative. I haven’t created art or crafted in so long, and writing, even the stream of consciousness of this blog seemed like too big a task. A couple of weeks ago, TK surprised me with an incredible weekend away for my birthday. I knew nothing of the plans, except I was booked from Friday evening to Sunday night, and to pack something nice to wear for Saturday.
I have a sort of love-hate relationship with surprises. I absolutely love the thrill of not knowing, of what could be, and I get a kick out of the curiosity that blossoms inside me regarding a surprise. But I also fear them. I worry I won’t enjoy myself; for some reason I always fear a surprise for me will involve public speaking. Or that I’ll end up being a public spectacle in some form. I’ll psycho-analzye that one later… So I was delighted to have a surprise weekend to wonder about and yet nervously curious to finally know what it was all about. (more…)
I’m back. I realize I had looked at my blog (& others in the past) as a task, and ultimately something that belonged to others, not me. I realize it’s mine, whether I write here or not, that’s up to me. Whether I share a funny story, some pictures, or something more meaningful, it’s my decision. So, that has made wanting to come and get my thoughts out much more appealing. I traveled this summer, and have stories of my adventures to tell. It was a beautiful journey and I’ll be sharing about it in the coming weeks. Nice to be back. And even nicer to not feel it’s obligatory. Thanks for stopping by!
