Writer abandons post

I knew I hadn’t written in my blog for awhile. I thought it had been a couple of weeks at the most. When I opened up my blog to see that the last post was written 1 month and 2 days ago (only because this year is leap year otherwise it would be 1 month and 1 day ago) I was quite ashamed of myself. I then went over to the statistics to see if anyone had checked out my blog only to find out that I had more people look at my blog in February than in January (I think, I really don’t know it looks that way so it’s a guess, but a really good guess).

Can you imagine what thoughts came to my mind? No thoughts, why would today be any different than yesterday? So, I decided that I would get back out there. I would throw my lack of thoughts out into the wind and see if they stuck to the wall.

So where have I been you ask? Mostly working at my job that actually pays. I abandoned my post to play with numbers and left the letters and words to occupy the other part of my brain. They have been pounding my head to get out. But, I ignored them. I had no time for them. Yes, the last month has been difficult. Writing is an outlet for me. It is therapy; a way to work through the angst of life and attempt to bring a bit of levity into the world. February has been heavy.

    rj, I had just started checking out your blog when you abandoned it, so maybe you were seeing me checking it every day or so to find out if you’d written. I’m glad you’re back.

    I’ve checked almost every day, hoping you were okay! Sometimes after a hard day, I can count on getting a laugh over here. I’ve missed you! Hope things are ‘lighter’ in March!

    Glad to hear from you.

    I’m fighting to find the will to keep writing myself. Best of luck with your job.

    Hi, I re-found you today. I love your avatar! Your comment “I would throw my lack of thoughts out into the wind and see if they stuck to the wall.” is quite hilarious to my funny sense of thinking… How DO you throw a ‘lack’?!?

    Have a great move! Moving to me is like a fun adventure (I’ve moved a lot; I’m in my 7th house in ~ 20 years.)
