I'm Still Here

It seems like the longer I take to post on my blog, the harder it gets to post. While one might think there would be much more to write about, I am finding the opposite. An event that I find hysterical, amusing or interesting at the moment of inception, loses it's appeal over time.

My life is filled with short bursts of humor in between the more mundane routine of a suburban life. These "bursts" are like produce in the garden of my mind. If not served fresh, these memories start to rot and are thrown away.

I also find that as my absences from Blogger grow longer, my powers of observation start to dull a bit.

As I worry about giving up this blog, I am lured back by the Siren's call of my online journal, beckoning me back to pick up where I have left off.

And so here I am!

I know exactly what you mean. If I go more than 2 or 3 days, it takes a huge effort to get back into the flow of writing again.

And so many anecdotes lose their lustre if they're not recorded right away. It's as if the emotions we felt at the time lose their oomph and that makes it hard to bring the story back to life again.

I'm glad you're back!

I'm having trouble finding time to write down the things I want to write about. It's hard to get back into the writing groove when you've been away.
