Three Months of Blogging Silence from Me? Impossible!
Tuesday, April 15, 2008
Is it actually possible that I've gone almost three months without blogging?
A year or two ago, that would have been almost unthinkable. There were times when I was into an every day or every-other-day blogging groove.
But then I started blogging less and less frequently and spending more time doing other fun and creative things -- like experimenting with new types of writing, trying my hand at a motley assortment of crafts, and drinking in the world around me in a different way. Instead of rushing to my keyboard to blog life as it happened, I've been spending more time jotting down notes and thinking about how I want to work certain incidents and observations into writing projects down the road.
I feel like I'm at a crossroads again, but this time all the roads are leading to places I wouldn't mind being (as opposed to times when I've found myself at a crossroads in the past, when the choices seemed so high-stakes and so final: happiness vs unhappiness forevermore). Maybe this is what it feels like to be on the other side of a mid-life crisis -- calm, serene, and full of hope and anticipation. If that's where I am, then everything that came before was worth it because it brought me to where I am right now.
Just in case I go undercover again (not in my plans, but you never know!), you can always catch up with me at Yahoo! Canada and The Toronto Star's ParentCentral.ca.
