My Blog Has Fallen and It Can't Get Up

I honest to fuck don't know what it is -- I just don't seem to be able to blog lately.

It's not for want of ideas and notions and things to say -- in fact I'd say it was the opposite -- there is a constant swirl in my head -- a cacophony of concepts that vie endlessly for blog-space.

Perhaps I'm just too egalitarian for my own good. I can't decide which one should go first.

So I'm blogging tonight in the hope of blasting out whatever clog is in the pipes.

I haven't even been able to comment much at my favorite blogs -- every time I start typing something, I think: "This is of no pertinence or interest to anyone", and as often as not, I simply scrap the whole thing.

It's true -- I really have been focused elsewhere -- working, gathering myself, trying to think what direction I want to go next. I've been pondering big issues like Life and Death, and who I am now, and who I've been in the past, and who I might want to become in the future.

Here's hoping this post is some magic wand that gets me back blogging.

It happens to all of us, and it is weirdly comforting to know that it happens to other people, even someone as awesome as you are!

It'll come...and we will all be waiting!

It's also weirdly comforting to hear you say that. {{{OOuyangDanO}}}

*says something of no pertinence or interest to anyone*

And I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

Gotta agree that it's comforting to hear that other bloggers (especially bloggers as awesomely kick ass as yourself) are feeling the same way I am right now.

Here's hoping PortlyDyke will wave her magic wand my way too.

I had a feeling that you were on "hold." It must be that time of year. Well I know that whatever comes next will be phenomenal, as usual.

Thanks for thinking deeply. I feel that it makes the world better.

PD no matter what you say, you share yourself with us. THAT is what I cherish.

You speak what is present at the moment and because you are sensitive to the energy and world around you, we can all relate.

Just seeing THIS post from you, brightens my day, reminds me I am not alone, causes me to reflect on what's going on with my life.

BTW seeing your comments on any post, no matter what you say, will have me dropping in - reading and connecting again.

SO THANKS FOR THIS POST. I haven't been around much either, and now I just wrote this long response - thinking about you, and my life.

* pertinence or interest to anyone* bah!

This has happened to me as well: with commenting, emailing, blogging, writing the website I'm supposed to be doing.....and I've been in that space for longer than I like to think.

Some of it has to do with the planets in the sky, imho.

Glad you're back. (And you're inspiration.)

I've read enough of your comments to be sure that you are incapable of posting anything which is "of no pertinence or interest to anyone." But sometimes one's attention is required elsewhere.

Meantime, thanks for sharing the blotter. How very genteel your police reporter is! 911 calls are necessitated because one's relatives are "annoying" or one's home is in "disarray"; a man "decline(s) the suggestion" to avoid parking in an inconvenient location. Your town is an example to us all. Just because regrettable occurrences may require police intervention is no reason decorum should not be maintained. It's all very St. Mary Mead-ish, but thankfully without (thus far) the occasional drawing room murder.

As said already it happens to everyone but I'm sure you'll overcome it.
