Or, so I'd like to think.
Since I'm beginning to get threats regarding my lack of updating here, I thought I should break my silence and begin writing again. I feel a bit rusty. Other than work-related items, I haven't done any writing for at least a month now. It was an unplanned break and once it started I didn't know where to interrupt and speak up. My intention isn't to play games here. This is meant to be a creative outlet for me but sometimes it feels like it has taken on a life and direction of its own. My creativity has been flowing in a different direction lately. However, it's not a replacement. It's an extension.
Socrates is quoted as stating that "an unexamined life is not worth living."
I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. Last year my theme for the year was "balance." This year I decided to select "simplicity." I've been doing a lot of reading, cleaning, organizing, and thinking about what it means to me. I've been limiting my time online and the time I spend watching television during this process because I wanted the opportunity to really think and not have my thoughts be muddied or have to compete for my attention.
I don't think I'm done yet but I think I'm ready to start writing again. I actually feel like writing and topics are coming to me. I haven't felt that way about writing here in a long time. However, I've actually had some other creative spurts hitting me. I'm even exploring the idea of writing fiction. I might try it some here. We'll see.
That's enough of an ice breaker -- for now.
