So I’ve been MIA.
Sorry about that. Here you were, kind enough to follow me after I uploaded a little fiction, and I disappear. Work has been nuts, the kids are out of school now, and I have had exactly one day off in the last three weeks. I should have used that day to update, to write, to do laundry and clean the house. But I didn’t. I used it for “veal practice.”
“Veal practice” is a term I’ve borrowed from Shonda Rhimes. It’s when you eat a lot and don’t move much – like the baby cows they turn into veal.
That is what I did with my day off.
I was veal. I didn’t even put on a bra.
It was glorious.
But now I’m back, refreshed and ready to roll.
Thanks for the follow, by the way. It never occurred to me that anyone would actually read what I wrote here.
I’ve been kind of struggling with how “out there” I want to be with this blog. Do I want to reveal the full depths of my metaphysical leanings? Will I alienate readers of my totally grounded mainstream-style fiction by posting bits of “woo-woo” based thinking in other posts? Will the inclusion of the “woo-woo” limit my reach or my readership?
After careful analysis, I’ve decided it might, but it doesn’t matter. The blog is only useful to me and to others if I am fully authentic. And so I shall endeavor to be so. I, like everyone else, have so many facets and interests, but it would be disingenuous to limit my blog to only one facet of who I am.
So I move forward with faith that those who need to read it will find it and those who think I’m nuts are free to move on with my blessing. I might, at some point in the future, decide to limit the blog or split topics etc. but that day is not today. Today, I’m still free wheelin’ it and choosing my direction by the feeling in the moment.
Thanks for checking in. I shall endeavor to be a bit more regular in my posting and will get some more fiction up shortly since that’s what most of you seem to have tuned in for.
