Well, it took me a lot longer to get back to blogging than I expected. There are many reasons for this: I've been experiencing a pretty major case of writer's block, I started working for the library so was distracted elsewhere, and maybe the most mundane of all, my computer got so old and heavy, I avoided using it.
After coming to that last realization, I thought, "If I ever want to write again without it feeling like a chore, maybe I should do something about it."
Who knew I was so cheap, I'd hold onto a piece of equipment that was impeding my creative process? I had my last laptop for more than seven years. It served me well, but as I type on my new machine that weighs all of three pounds, I could kick myself for not doing it sooner. Oh, the impediments to good habits!
My lengthy break means I'm probably not going to blog in the ways I used to. I'm going to share a diverse assortment of things now, including the occasional poem. We've been in our new house for almost three years and there are projects, both big and small, waiting. They just won't be the main focus of this space anymore. As I mentioned, I work at the library now, not just as a Board Member for the Friends of the Library, so occasionally it may find its way in here, too. But my plan is to get back into it -- the blog needs to live and breathe -- so that will be my focus.
A blog about writing, art, projects, or whatever else tickles my fancy.
