Voices from the...well, not dead
9/2/2006 12:46:18 PM
Sometimes we don't live for the life of us...
If I were energetic, I would have looked to see how long ago I last wrote a blog. Mind you, I don't think the world has teetered on the brink of insanity during my absence...at least, not because I wasn't blogging.

But it's embarrassing to admit that I, who wrote before I went to school, and never stopped, even during the darkest of days, suddenly stopped.

Where does writing go, when it's always been there and then just isn't? I could blame my job--teaching takes it out of us all, these days,--or I could blame my health. Doctors assure me the tumor they found in my brain (benign, quite fortunately) has nothing to do with my headaches, lethargy or blindness.

Since I can't reasonably excuse my sudden unwillingness to write--I hope not a sudden inability to do so--I guess I'll just accept the fact that life involves effort, and recently, I haven't expended enough.

So I'll force myself to seek inspiraton, drink more juice, exercise more, buy...what are those memory pills called? No matter. A recent note from a friend, a granddaughter's hysterical recounting of how to put out fires...sitting outside in the September sun. Life doesn't go where we can't find it again.
