This blog is nearing a year old (2/23/11 was my first post). When I started the blog I promised myself that I wasn’t going to impose any rules about how often I post, make myself feel bad about not posting, write long posts about why I haven’t been posting, or keep blogging past the time when I was enjoying it. Now that I am almost a year into this project, and have been absent more than present in this space since the beginning of the new year, my resolve is being tested.
The truth, for me, is that life happens sometimes in a way that doesn’t leave much space for creativity. Or the space is so small, timid and rare, I don’t want to point it out to the world, lest it run away. I’m in one of those places now–when work and life and family seem to be taking up all the available oxygen in the room. I have faith that this too shall pass and that I’ll be back soon with creativity to spare.
Until then, I hope you are well and furiously making lots of wonderful things.
