A Tangled Web

So, it's been a while, hasn't it? My attention span for blogging seems relatively low these days, which does not exactly make for long, entertaining posts (or posts of any kind, really). It's not that I don't think of things to write or even that things aren't going well. It's just that between being busy and a renewed fixation on personal journaling, not much seems to make it here.

Do you ever go through periods of extreme pensiveness, where your mind has knitted itself so tightly together that your thoughts become entangled like a knotted ball of string? Well, let me tell you that when it does, it makes it difficult to express what you think at all let alone do so in any kind of sensible way. That's where personal journals are great. They don't have to make sense. They don't need to be expurgated and they can ramble on and on, drifting here and there until your thoughts have become completely unravelled.

Anyway, there actually are some things that I have to share before they become irrelevant, so hopefully my fingers will catch up with my fit for public consumption thoughts in the next few days.

P.s. I wrote a poem and for the first time ever, I think it might actually be kinda good. Go me!

I am not at all surprised with your good poem writing!

glad to hear that you'll be writing more for public consumption soon, but am super doubly glad to hear that you've been writing, writing, writing!

Hee! You wouldn't say that if you'd read some of my attempts!

But the writing part is good. I'm actually off tomorrow to do something I have been wanting to do for a long, long time - rent a room with an ocean view and just spend the day writing and going for walks. I'm taking Toby, so I don't get completely lonely, but I think the time on my own will be rejuvinating.
