It’s been two weeks since I’ve talked to you. Have I been “busy”? Yeah, some. But the truth is that I just didn’t feel like writing to you. There was no magnetism drawing my fingers to the keys. I know that my life is about contributing to other human beings, and sometimes in WordPress the “should” of saying something has been strong. Sometimes I would write just to keep my daily streak of communication going. At those moments, I wasn’t being true to myself. This two-week absence has felt true. And now it’s time to return.
I woke up this morning with an uncomfortable thought: maybe you folks think I’m dead. Ouch. I never want to hurt anybody, and what if some of you are imagining a car accident, a big illness, or a major mental distress? None of those are true but leaving you in the space of not knowing was unfair. I’m sorry if I caused you worry. I should have just done a post saying “I don’t want to write right now. I’m fine. It could be a week or two before I reappear.” That would have been good.
Hmm. I’m glad I’m saying these things. And I’m glad that I honoured the rhythms of my life by not writing lengthy posts recently. And now … it’s time to share my thoughts again. I’ll be back tomorrow.
