I surely can.
Because that’s the way my life’s been this last week or so. Seems like every time I take two steps forward, I end up two steps back. Or something else distracts me.
Oooo, see the pretty light over there. Let’s go follow it.
But it’s not all bad. Actually, none of it’s really bad, just, you know, normal life stuff, if you know what I mean.
Anyway, when I started posting again at the first of the year, I committed to getting something up at least once a week and I still feel that way. Life, however, has other ideas so I’m attempting to adapt the game plan somewhat. Put it this way, I literally have lists of ideas to write about as well as boxes and boxes of books to go through (which is a post all on its own) but very little time to devote to sorting it all out.
My biggest issue at the moment is that I’ve started a class that meets twice a week and it’s unclear how much time it’s going involve. Once I know a little more about that, I’ll have some idea what my routine will be going forward.
I guess I’ve never been the type of person that deals well with having their schedule disrupted – even when they’re the one that makes the change. So, I suppose the purpose of this post is an FYI to expect a lot more smaller fly-by posts as I have the time but also to know that my immediate goal is still to do longer weekly posts as much as possible because I simply like doing them.
I think it’s more a matter of finding balance and, no, that’s not at all being philosophical. I’m actually being rather mundanely practical and realistic in both a figurative and literal way at the same time. I’ve always had problems with my neck and shoulders but in the last few years it’s gotten much worse, so I can’t spend as much time at the computer as I used to, at least in long stretches without paying a price. Heck, I can’t even stay in one position as long as I used to so I’ve had to learn (relearn?) a lot of things.
And that as much as anything else was what taking last year off from posting here was about. So there’s a lot I have and want to share but I’m still feeling my way on how exactly to do it and stay healthy at the same time.
Life is always interesting, isn’t it?
