Dear Blog Readers,
I know it’s been almost ten months since last writing here. No excuses. The muse simply departed and headed elsewhere. No huge creative outpourings arose. The camera rarely clicked. My WordPress plan expired and they insisted upon another $96 before publishing another post.
It seemed Lake Superior Spirit would simply lap her waters into oblivion and I would be evermore content to post on Facebook to friends & family.
The last couple of months I’ve once again felt on fire with creativity and posted regularly on Facebook. What else to do during stay-at-home? What else to do during a pandemic? It even felt easier to post over there. Trying to share more intimately. Trying to show up more authentically.
It felt like it was “working”–for a time. But in the last couple of days the muse is creating poems and essays that feel more appropriate to share here in the blogging world. It somehow feels safer for me to express here. Like there’s more room, less prodding and poking.
So here we are again. Back in the saddle, cowgirl.
Before I share more creative ventures in future posts, before I take a stroll over to your blogs to see what’s happening–please tell me what’s been happening in your world.
How are you doing during this pandemic time?
How are you feeling? Are you well?
A year ago we were preparing to attend our daughter’s Italian wedding in June. If a time-traveler whispered, “In one year’s time you’ll be shut down in your homes, wearing masks in the grocery stores with thousands of deaths–just in your country” would you have believed it?
A year can bring a lot of changes. What changes have happened in your neck of the woods?
