Plumbing

I haven't abandoned my blog. Really. I've just had a form of blog-writer's block (I can't have general writer's block seeing as that's how I earn a living).

It's not so much that I haven't had anything to say or that I haven't known how to say it -- on the contrary, there have been a hundred little (and big) thoughts I've wanted to jot down over the last few months. I think the real problem was that my last post was so overwhelming that every time I wanted to blog again, it seemed like no new post could match up to the intensity of the last one. And that thought would incapacitate me.

Nothing has really changed. My last post will remain the most intense of all my posts. I can't match the sentiment expressed in that one -- nor do I want to. My life changed forever in June and you just can't top that. The difference now -- the reason I'm now daring to blog again -- is that I finally realized that I don't need to keep up such an intense dialogue anymore. It's okay if I want to write about something silly and superficial. It doesn't trivialize the feelings I last expressed here. After all, life's full of serious moments and light ones -- and if you can't get past those sobering times, imagine how depressing life would be.

All by way of saying, I'm officially unblocked. Now, I just need to find the time to write...

Feisty!

I call this block a 'Blogging Fatigue' - this is what my limited vocabulary can conjure up.

Anyway, glad your pen is rolling again and hope you are coping well..

Very glad you're unblocked! And also that you gave yourself the time and space to deal with your life-changing experience at your own pace! You must be feeling stronger for it. Look forward to more posts from now on -- happy, sad, funny, moody, light, intense, serious and otherwise!
