Hi. My name is Sarah. Remember me? I used to write kick ass blog posts and short stories. Forever and a damned day ago. (See below for kick-ass-ness)
I have been gone a while. A really long while. At least from this or any blog for that matter. You will be thrilled to know I have been in a remote tropic locale enjoying the warm breeze and relaxing on a beach with a good book and a cocktail. I even thought to include a picture of my hiatus.
I know what you are thinking. How dare that bitch come here and brag about her hiatus, whatever the hell that is.
This was a doodle I did the other day while on the phone. I have not been on hiatus, vacation, sabbatical, or even been jaunting. I have been a wife, a mom, and a worker bee. And I had the largest writers block known to man. I just couldn’t write.
I think I got a case of the scared’s. Yes Scared-s. It is a word. Well, it is my word.
Hell I didn’t even finish the doodle.
But, I am working my way back to my cozy home in my head where all the writing spills out here. Two blogs. One day. This my friend is a trend.
Granted, these aren’t exactly “Think Pieces” that are going to change how you feel about a current issue we all hold close to our hearts.
Very rarely will this blog do that anyway. Even on it’s best day. I like to write & I like to laugh. I also like to use the Ampersand.
Glad to meet you all again, you nameless faceless readers. You have been missed.
I leave you today with a self portrait I painstakingly sketched over about a year. I did it in charcoal and ink. Enjoy and I will see YOU and yes even you in the back, very very soon.
Woman on Pause
P.S. I know that the events yesterday in Boston are heavily on everyone’s minds, including my own. I was going to address it, but what more can be said at this point. I hope that those injured are recovering, justice is served, and that the families who lost are comforted as much as can be expected at this time.
