Every few months I remind myself how much I enjoy blogging and, oh yes, I remind myself that I actually have a blog. Now what was that name again? I sit down and try to remember why I quit blogging.
And the games begin.
In the corner of my eye, I notice the pile of clothes and shoes I’ve been collecting for a local charity. How long has this been piling up? Were the overflowing boxes and extra-large trash bags there before Christmas?
I remember now. Indeed they were. I considered arranging the conglomerate into a pyramid, encircling it a few times with twinkle lights and putting an angel on top. If anyone asked, I’d explain it as my crafty attempt at a Christmas tree. Expectations would be low. Everyone knows ‘crafty’ is never a word used to describe me. I was searching for the angel when I realized someone might question my motive. Wouldn’t it make better sense to make a Christmas donation rather than an unsightly art project?
And there you have it. It doesn’t take much for me to completely lose my train of thought. It’s usually midnight before I remember again that I was planning to blog today. My adventurous mind wanders aimlessly from one thought to another.
And yes, it’s important that you know, I loaded the car and delivered my donation before I finished this story. That’s some real stick-to-it-ness.
Also, it’s not midnight.
Recently, I returned from a trip to Peru. While I was in this country, all I wanted to do was write. Whenever I had a spare moment, I pulled out pen and paper (yes, I’m over 50) and I wrote. I hope (fingers-crossed that I keep blogging) to share my writings from Peru with you one day. I promise I’ll try to make the post more interesting than the hundreds of pictures I could show you. Peru needs to be talked about. It’s a powerful place. I know because it forced me to write more than a grocery list. Also Peru sent me home with a peace I hadn’t felt in a while. But that’s for a travel related post coming soon.
I intend to write whatever comes to mind in my posts. I’m tired of fretting over what my platform should be. I’m passionate about a lot of things and I want to talk about all of them. I guess this blog is aimed at the reader with the wandering mind. I might discuss a spiritual topic one day and the next I might list my ten favorite podcasts about True Crime.
As always, I hope you find a bit of humor here. I promise to never intentionally hurt anyone’s feelings or make fun of anyone-other than myself. There’s enough material about my embarrassing moments to last a lifetime.
Let me just say, I’m glad to be back!
