Don’t ask me why, I don’t know. For some reason, today of all days I have really felt like writing for the first time in an awfully long time.
While this post might not have as much to do with pertinent information, news, or opinion as most, it is my re-re-reaffirmation of a desire to be sharing my views with those here on the Web. The last few months have been absolutely horrid. Following is a chunk of a piece I wrote for my personal blog, between it, and the few posts I have managed to get up, you should get the picture. As they say: FML….
That’s about all I can say at the moment. On the eve of finally getting back to work, or as far as I know it should be the eve of taking off back up north to get to work I finally feel like I have procrastinated enough and am ready willing and able to write again. It might have something to do with the fact that all the other things I should be doing just don’t tickle my fancy today.
While I still feel that cooking, reading, and writing about it are my main, and almost only passions, these last few months have been harder and for the most part, worse that any I can recall in the last few years. My appetite for blogging had been quite low in the past couple of months/years already anyways due to commitments that commanded all of my free time, energy, and brain power. Our (read the SOs) predilection for helping others has cost us dearly recently. While all the financial and material losses can be overcome with time and hard work, the greatest loss of all must be the sense of peace and safety that recent happenings have stolen from us and our household. These may never return to us, no matter how hard we search for it or want it. I certainly hope that I am wrong in thinking this, and that time, among other things may bring back those feelings, that sense of peace and security that are sorely lacking from our home.
Already now, just this act of writing these words feels quite cathartic, I can only hope that this feeling continues.
That is all for today, I think. I hope to return in the near future with other news of what may become of this URL and blog, but for today, suffice it to say this is a start, a resurrection of one more thing that had been lost in the recent past.
I sincerely hope that you, dear reader continue to check back periodically and by all means let me know that you were here.
So to put those aggregated posts into kitchen speak; No I’m not in the weeds on a personal level, I’m reaching up to grab the roots of the weeds.
Other than repeating stuff I have shared recently and not so recently in regards to my true and heartfelt desire to continue this site, and sharing what I can with those who visit here I would just like say Thanks for Reading, those of you who still make it here on occasion.
