This place, which was essentially my second home for so long, has been quiet for the better part of nine months now.
And if I’m being honest, it wasn’t very loud in the months leading up
to that. A pitiful smattering of vague-isms, monumentally bad outfits, and a few brave moments I probably shouldn’t have published (but am
ultimately glad I did, and not just for the e-hugs I so desperately
needed at the time).
I’m surprised at how that stretch of silence has ticked on and on,
honestly. I suppose the past nine months were just such a roller coaster, it was
all I could do to live it, never mind find the energy to share it. I’m
not sure yet if I’ll regret how much time I missed getting down on
paper; how many memories will disappear because I couldn’t find the
wherewithal to save them here.
But it is what it is, right? And I can either continue to sit on my
ass and ponder that, or I can shut up and start to hit publish again.
So that’s it, for now. I’ll try to play catch up over the next couple
weeks, and get back to a place of normalcy here, so that it’s no longer
this big, fat, bully of a blank page that stretches on for eons and
can’t possibly be filled. Instead, it will just be my little old life,
day by day-ish, again – a place I once again love to call home. There will be more personal thoughts, rants, and musings, so get ready for that.
