I thought I should probably check in with a post after receiving a number of messages from some of my readers.
I have had zero desire to write lately (each attempt has been scrapped before it was finished). I’m not really sure why, as when I am in the mode to write, pounding out 1-4 posts a day happens so effortlessly. My periods of writing more usually occur through periods of heavy interaction with others and I have a number of topics and ideas constantly churning in my mind due to conversations. I haven’t felt this in a while and it seems my two-day span in August was an anomaly.
I am entering the fourth month of foraying back into the local scene. The process has been both great and mildly disappointing. On the positive end, I had forgotten how it felt to really meet and connect with people in person and this reminded me how much I miss and enjoy it when the opportunities arise. On the negative end, while my list of people I know by name is growing with each passing week, the number of friends I have made has remained the same as it was as of August. I can’t tell if I am doing it wrong or if this is just a sign of how the community is.
In any case, I have been busy lately and it feels pretty good to say that for reasons other than work.
