“So, you went to sleep a year ago, and then what happened?”
My friend Melanie, the miniatures artist turned travel writer turned certified wine expert, asked me this during a phone call last week. We haven’t connected in real time since about a year ago, so she was right.
What a year.
I’ve been busy, to say the least, and using my writing and creativity in ways that distracted me from the blog. Lately, though, I have been getting that familiar urge. It goes something like this:
I have a thought, and it is bigger than all the other thoughts. “I need to write about this right now,” I say to myself, but the opportunity to dash to my home office and open up a new post like I used to do hasn’t happened until…now.
I was inspired to draft this by a quandary: which people from work should go on my Christmas card list this year?
That seems pretty random in the context of this blog, since I haven’t posted in 7 months! I feel compelled to draft the backstory. Who are my coworkers? Why is this a quandary in the first place? What are you even up to? You left us hanging from March to November? And isn’t this a mommy blog?
All that is to say I’ll be back.
