So as you can tell, I have not posted anything in a very long time. I go through stages where I may feel completely creative, inspired, manic, and I find myself able to post something almost everyday. Recently, that has not been the case.
I think it all started when my cousin and I threw a party for my aunt's 70th birthday at the beginning of this month. Throughout the entire day, I took pictures with the intention of posting them and running a narrative on the day's events. However, when I started to download the pictures and write the post, I hit a wall. And I have yet to recover... Maybe it's because it can be an emotional and frustrating task to write about family, any family...my family. And then I just couldn't get myself over the wall. So I avoided my blog altogether...kind of like taxes, balancing my checkbook or weeding the backyard. All things that I am quite proficient at avoiding.
Then, people started asking me why I hadn't posted anything in awhile... I thought to myself..."you actually read this, not out of obligation?" But with anything "somewhat" creative, you just can't force it. So, I wait for inspiration, a tipsy evening (like some alcoholic poet) or a life altering event that will thrust me back into my normal posting pace... Craig and I are headed on vacation this weekend to Lake Tahoe and I am sure that inspiration or something like it will be waiting for me. I hope.
