I figured out something at oh-dark-hundred hours as I lay on the couch listening to Wendell pace in his room above me. It has been over 6 months since I’ve posted, and it certainly hasn’t been for lack of material.
My last post in March, was about my broken foot; there is the conclusion of that adventure. I have numerous photos taken in the spring as our gardens came to life. I have genetic testing results for Wendell. In July, DJ and I painted our pond, complete with pictures. And the list goes on.
So, what has kept me from sharing? When I write, I have to think (duh). The thoughts are not always pleasant. Thoughts on a particular subject might cause anxiety and stress. Who needs that? Other topics make me angry and frustrated. I can’t just write about happy stuff, my life runs the gamut of emotions. However, sometimes, I just. don’t. want. to get sucked into the vortex of my thoughts.
Instead, I listen to audio books. I can do things around the house while listening to a book (although sometimes I sit with the iPad and play games). I escape my own thoughts and become absorbed in the world created by others. I usually get through 2 books per week, scary. Often, I have a digital book checked out at the same time, although reading a book is at the rate of one every three weeks. Still, escape is achieved.
Now that my secret is out, I still can’t promise I will get back into a routine of writing, but, I plan to make an earnest attempt. Stay tuned, some of what I have might be insightful (at least to me), and I know a few subjects should bring you a chuckle.
Until next time, I’ll leave you with one of my favorite pictures from the summer. Oh, and why was I on the couch at oh-dark-hundred and why was Wendell pacing? Patience!
