Take a day off writing your blog, then make it two, and somehow it becomes a week, and even two weeks.

Lately, there has been plenty in my life to blog about, but most of my energies have gone towards writing in my notebooks. This blog, my writing blog, and my links blog have all suffered as a result.

When I have free time nowadays, I like watching the rain as it pours. It poured relentlessly all evening yesterday. And today the afternoon rain has clouded out the view for miles around.

I think I am in a blog fog, a place where blogging feels banal, unimportant, dispensable. So let me try and post this before I decide to delete it 🙂

Happy Easter, and here’s to a healthy blogging week for one and all! Let’s hope that includes me, sigh.

    Sometimes one is quiet.

  • I have been on paper of late too. There is nothing wrong with going low tech when the spirit calls for it.

    I know just how you feel, Damyanti. Sometimes, knowing there are others out there who care about what you have to say, what you’re experiencing, and just like you, inasmuch as you can be seen through this tiny lens, makes the effort to keep blogging worth it.

    You have a friend half a globe away sending you hugs and excited to see your next entry. 🙂
