Has it really been that long since I last posted? I mean this can’t be right and there must have been a glitch on my blog or something, but deep down I know there has been no crazy glitch in my blog and I actually have not posted something between July 27 and today.
Yesterday when I got off work I was thinking about writing and how it’s been such a long time since I’ve been on here and many other thoughts came to my mind. For one I started to think how writing has been both a prominent thought in my mind and yet all the same something I haven’t thought about. Is that possible? I think what I mean is that I intend to write but then always end up allowing one thing or another get in the way and thus the days go by and that’s how I came to find myself with a gap of a little under a month between this post and my last post. What I realized is that I missed writing and I had been gone too long.
And then another thought came to my mind which had to do with a WordPress topic I remembered seeing some time ago, something along the lins of “too busy or lazy”. I thought…have I really been that busy that I haven’t been able to write…or is there a pinch of lazy mixed in there as well? I must admit it’s been a little bit of both. I had to be honest with myself and I realized that sometimes I did have time, but really I was feeling lazy and just wanted to veg out on the couch or take a nap. Yes, I’m guilty of that, it’s just that sometimes it feels so darn good to do just nothing, even if you have a super long list of somethings to do.
My last rambling thought was noticing all the craziness around me as I drove to the gas station before heading home. Everyone seemed to be in such a frenzy and I almost felt like I was viewing a scene from the outside instead of being an actual participant and felt sort of hidden in my car, like a protective cocoon. I saw so many drivers cutting others off, making crazy driving decisions just to ensure they would make that green light or squeeze into that last coveted parking spot or open gas station. I couldn’t help but wonder, what kind of thin thread manages to hold it all together, because with all that craziness around, how is it that it doesn’t unravel and people just suddenly do what they please?
Today was just about random ramblings, it got me writing though and I’m happy for that.
