It is true that it is has been a longer gap than usual for posting. I have been waiting for some profound thought to give me stimulus for a wise, intelligent or even humorous post...an exception to the rule. I have been waiting for something to write that elaborates, enumerates, or illuminates. I noticed the other day that this blog has shrunk in followers which is a nice bit of evidence on how boring I have become. Of course, I would continue to write even if no one read this, because I do still write for my own creative outlet. It is like eating and pooping...I just have to do it.
Alas, my dear brain has entered a far dimension these days...maybe I left it in Aruba with that curious blue lizard?
Maybe I gave it too long a rest after finding my future daughter-in-law and I are in such a magical and wonderful space together and I do not want to tamper with that by thinking too much.
Maybe I have absolutely emptied it - my mind? That is a scary thought.
Wait! I am trying to find a focus here! It is like knocking on the door of an empty room for conversation. No one answers because no one is in there. I open the door and there are just dust bunnies and faint shadows and the hollow sounds of my footsteps.
Death and politics. This is all that seems to sneak into my thoughts when I let it.. And certainly both of those subjects are not small enough to write about nor safe enough to even consider these days. Beauty and peace find their way to my other blog, so that outlet is well satisfied, and not surprisingly, that blog has grown in number of readers.
You know that I am going to die, if not imminently, and I know the same about you. I cannot change that by writing about it. ("if you mean 'famous' or 'superior' you want eminent; if you mean 'impending, about to happen' that is imminent; and if you mean 'present, inherent,' your word is immanent.") That was tricky.
You know who I am going to vote for and I might know the same about you, but since we are adults it is unlikely we will change each others minds if we are not in agreement. The world, especially Europe and the Middle East, seems to be collapsing. The poor are getting very poor which means dark days ahead globally. So, should I write about that?
That leaves puppies and babies and what I ate for breakfast..since I am on my own this weekend it was a biscotti with coffee.. Maybe I should post a photo? Nope, this is not Facebook...........Guess I will go see what is happening there.
