Its been nine, count 'em, nine, weeks since I wrote a blog...wrote much of anything. I've been busy, distracted, uninspired, inspired but lazy, procrastinating...well, you get the picture. It just hasn't been in....well...a priority? No, that's not exactly it. A necessity? Some might say not, but, truly, it think it is for me. A regular writing practice is imperative for any writer. So what is it?
Distracted. Energy drained. Out of gas. Perhaps.
Probably it all boils down to this: discipline. Its a reduction sauce of what's left when you simmered the ingredients in your roux, the clarified butter with a pinch of flour. You take it down until what you have left is a savory sauce to make your dish tasty. That's what I've been doing! Making a roux!
So that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Like a roux. And I shall not rue the day.
Lets call t this sort of sabbatical. I was studying. That's the ticket. At least that's the best explanation I can come up with. But sabbaticals end...unless they turn into retirements or something like that. Not from writing...no, I'm not there yet. Hope I never will be.
In the last nine weeks I have been elsewhere. I house-sat in Santa Barbara couple times, drove an elderly couple up to Orcas Island in the Puget Sound. I've tried to cope with the excessive heatwave here is Southern California, finding energy and stamina in short supply. I've even written some on my two memoirs I've been working on for, what, nine years! Maybe there's something in the number nine?
The Bible numerology code number 9. Most of the religions maintain numbers carry hidden meanings which are supposed to carry the secrets of universe. ... It is also the number of man and depicts gestation which is also a period of nine months. It is the number of hierarchy; it representednine choruses of angels.The Bible numerology code number 9 - AstroVera.comwww.astrovera.com/bible-religion/190-bible-number-9.html
That's as good reason as any. LOL
So here goes. Let me blog again! And perhaps the results will have been worth the wait!
