Long Absence, and Beauty in the Mundane

Truth is, I just haven’t had the energy to write.  (Which I suppose means I’m not a “real” writer.)  Real writers all say that they cannot help themselves – that they must put thoughts to paper.  I’ve read a lot of books lately on my Kindle (love that thing!) and some writers are just absymal.  I think:  “Wow.  If that person can get published, why can’t I?” 

Truth is, I don’ t have a story to tell (at least not one that is helpful or unique.)  This is all just thoughts to “paper” and updating those of you who stop on by.

 And, Truth is, my computer is … also … abysmal.  So, that makes it hard to post.  Soon, though, I hope to have a new laptop and John asked me to post more about what I consider to be mundane details of life at Home. 

“I don’t even know what the house looks like, Hol.  Or the new kitten.”

Yep, Wife of the Year, RIGHT HERE.

So, next month, the new Mac is supposed to arrive…we’ll see how it goes.  My inspiration is Anna, who is posting again (Hooray!) but she has a vastly different life and experience.  This blog will never equal hers – but I definitely would like to post something, mostly for John’s benefit, every day.

For now, I leave you with the view I just had, thanks to two wonderful days of Leave with John – in a faraway place, where we shared long conversations over steaming mugs and in the chilly air.  My favorite kind of conversation.


With my favorite person.
