I just stepped away from the computer for a minute. Honest. It really was just a minute. Or was it? Somehow that minute turned into an hour, and then a day, week, month . . . seven months. Time warp? Black hole? Temporary amnesia? Could have been those darn aliens. But no, I suspect you know that it was none of those things (although aliens ARE real - I've seen them). No, it was nothing that mysterious, nothing that intriguing.
It was just that four letter word. L.I.F.E. Lost Interest For Et. I know that Et isn't really a word. I thought about changing the spelling of Life to Lifi, but thought that would be weird. So, I decided to change the spelling of It to Et. That is only half as weird. I stepped away from the computer last April and, all of a sudden, I had no desire to go back. Although, my boss would have been really mad if I hadn't gone back and he probably would have fired me, so I compromised. I went back to WORK, but not to blog. I know that blogging is work, but a lot of us don't get paid to blog. But many of us get paid to work. Although most of us don't get paid enough. To work, that is. However, I realize that there IS payback to blogging. Payback is different for every blogger. For me, it is the camaraderie with all of you in this crazy world of blogging. You have all been frequent flyers in my heart these last seven months.
I may not have enough thoughts in my brain to fill a page. And the thoughts that I DO have may not be very thoughtful. But, I am back . . . until the aliens come.
