It has been close to 6 months since I last wrote in this blog. It is perhaps the longest time I have ever gone without writing, but as you know, life, can sometimes get in the way.
In truth, it was never my intention to abandon writing, but with each passing year it become more difficult to focus. The day to day takes over and one gets sucking into “grown up” problems that distract us from art and reading for pleasure.
So, although my schedule is no less hectic, I say no “no more”! From today, I will not spend my days and nights melting away over TV box sets (as entertaining as they are) or car crash TV. I’ll keep myself informed of world events, but will not torture myself over reading ten versions of the same politic story until I read an opinion I like or that brings be comfort.
To be honest, there are many thing that have occupied my time that are legitimate and warrant my attention. I’ll list a few here:
- New job
- Adoption of two new cats
- New job
- Return to university after a 15 year gap
- travel to distant lands (India), but more on that later
- Significant birthday celebrations
- New Job…
For this, my new prompt after a 6 month absence, write a list of the significant things that have happened in your life for the past six months. Pick one and write a few hundred words about it.
I’m off to do the same.
See you sooner this time!
