In my absence, I feel certain that many of you have been waiting breathlessly at my virtual doorstep, clamoring for that next riveting commentary on my daily routines or demented musings. As I said, I feel certain of it...and whether or not that certainty is grounded in reality is entirely irrelevant and I'll thank you not to mess with my version of reality.
My days have been filled with busyness and frantic running to and fro. Hopefully the causes have been worthy and have resulted in an experience of joy, companionship or beauty for others. I am still running...but if I don't take a few moments and declutter my mind by dumping some of it's thoughts onto paper, you just might find yourself observing a colossal mental and emotional breakdown. And trust me, that is not a pretty sight.
Writing is essential to my nature, as is attempting to make people laugh. Both of these energize me. The really great thing about the blog is that I don't have to actually make you laugh or hear you say, "Yes, yes. That is helpful and profound, Lori." I only have to imagine those things happening, and wah-lah! Instant energy. And trust me, I have a very active imagination.
So now that I am energized, I gotta run deliver 60 bags of cookies to the St. Trinity Food Pantry in South City.
I haven't said a thing, and I feel better already. Am I easy or what?! Catch ya later, Y'all.
