I’ve been too much away from writing this past couple of weeks. I’ve been distracted by travel, fun, interesting people. I don’t see this as a hardship, but rather an excuse – yes, a bit of field research. That’s what I’m telling myself. I’ve been experiencing life to have something interesting to write about..er…are you going to buy that one?
In truth, I’ve enjoyed myself, I feel guilty for neglecting my pages, but I’m back from my sabbatical and I’m ready to write. In the past week I’ve spent time with people from very different walks of life and I’m reminded that everyone has a story and that people, although we may have many things in common, are very unique.
I realise I may be rambling, but I’ve spent many, many hours reflecting on the people I’ve met lately. I’m not sure how the encounters will translate onto the page, but suffice it to say, I’ve been touched by their conversation, stories, uniqueness and a peek I’ve had into their lives.
I’m off to write and hope that however brief my meetings, they won’t be the last.
