Nothing to say

Pin It Evening washes over the park behind my house as the moonlight bathes everything in subdued shadow. The usual bustle of daily activity has since died down to the gentle murmur of crickets as the clocks slowly rolls closer to ten.

I discover myself inundated with thought; I find this surprising because I have had nothing to say as of late; and I still don’t. I was talking to a friend of mine earlier this week and I mentioned how I had felt drained, literally parched in the sense of language. I looked at my blog today and realized that I hadn’t written anything on it for one whole week; every time I’d sat down to write something, the words just wouldn’t come.

I had nothing.

So for a little while I’d sit and stare at the paper in front of me, jot down a few things, and then go and do something else. Blogging could wait—it would have to.

So I tonight I write. However, I write not because I have anything of great importance to say, but instead because I feel that I need to—after all, it has been a week.

Thanks for being patient, I hope to return shortly—personality and all.

Mr. Z,
Please take all the time you need. I understand about having nothing to say (at least nothing that can be published on a blog) after going through trials. I am certain that everyone will be here waiting when you return...

I think we all have difficulty writing when we are having a hard time, or are "drained." (Except maybe in privacy.. on papers we burn just after writing - just to let feelings out.)

It's OK not to write... please don't feel like you have to. Just forget about it, until the day when you find the nudging urge to write again.

And remember, no one expects you to have an energetic personality 24/7. You are, a real person, after all.

Meanwhile,
...sending prayers ;D

Writer's block could be a sign of having a restful break for once? I know I'm having the same problem too! But school starts back up for me on the 13th with the kiddos on the 19th. Then I'm sure the stories will start flowing again to where it might be a 2 posting day!!

I think it's important for you to know something....

I've missed you.

But, whenever you are ready, I'll be waiting to read your posts and be mesmerized by your photos.

I'm looking forward to it.

This is so strange--I almost wrote a post about not feeling like blogging just yesterday. Instead I wrote an entirely trivial and moronic one about nothing in particular. I don't know what the deal is...maybe end of summer blahs? Even my kids aren't doing anything muse-worthy--it's killing me. I'm zapped. I'm glad it's not just me.
