Since my fifteen-month illness disappeared faster than this spring's tulips, I have felt more creative and energetic. But I find these are just feelings and not something that is manifested into concrete production and activity. I am back working on my free weights and my running on the elliptical, but there are many days that I can find excuses to put this off until the following day. Excuses like the exercise clothes I have really should be washed, I must wait to digest my recent meal (which becomes an excuse to wait until just before the next meal), or finally, I have to clean out the inbox of my emails.
My creativity is there for this blog, but when strained through the clean light of morning, it also comes out flat and must be put off until after the news, after the gardening, after cooking. Excuses.
Most of my readers are my age...old. Their lives do not stand still as they move forward with the challenges of aging. I go to their blogs and find I have missed a crisis or two or even three! I feel guilty for sitting on my thumbs when the real world is still turning.
Perhaps I should write about the new fellow that has moved in quite comfortably under the deck.
Yet, I do believe that the real world is once again getting back to order and people are once again moving at a quicker pace. There is a large group of people in my country who are on a hate fest and who will not be happy until they 'win' whatever it is they think they are pursuing. But the larger group of people just want normal and courteous discourse and freedom to love the nature of the world once again. I think they would even be willing to read a boring blog or two to inject normalcy back into their lives.
I will write soon about the goose saga. With encouraging and discouraging photos, because us old ladies have not much else in our lives but birds.
My coffee is now cold, so I am off to read your blogs and hopefully to comment!
