You don't know how many times over the last week or so I came to my blog to post something, only to find I didn't know what to say -- my heart hadn't followed me to my site. Er, neither had my brain, I guess.
Perhaps it was the busyness of the last few weeks, what with preparing for and going to the writers' conference, as well as working like a beaver to complete my memoir writing course assignments. When I finally handed in my last piece, I looked up and peered around my world, surprised to see it, as if I'd been away for a long, long time. And, blogging seemed s-o-o-o-o very far away too.
Have you ever felt that way? Where you'd become so enamored or involved in a project or event that you found yourself totally disengaged from the rest of the world around you. And when you finally came back to it, you felt slightly disoriented, as if you'd awakened from a dream and didn't quite remember where you were.
One of my writing classmates said recently after an intense writing session that she needed to step away ... to put some distance between herself and her writing. So we didn't hear from her for a couple of days.
Seems that's what I've needed too ... some time to let the rest of my life swirl back in around me. And, most especially, to take in the beauty of our world now seriously turned autumn.
I look down the street into my neighbourhood and my whole view is aglow with this vibrant yellow. Against the grey sky it makes for a most satisfying contrast. So refreshing too.
Mmmm... it would seem my heart has found its way back. And, it seems we found a post along the way too. Lovely!
Now here's wishing you a beautiful day,
