My computer died. It completely died. I bought a new one, a really nice new one. Come to find out, I needed a new wireless adapter with my new computer. This means that I had to be without the internet for 6 days. During this 6 day period, all I could think of was that I needed to write something on my blog. What am I going to do? I have the internet on my phone. Maybe I can post from my phone. I wont be able to post pics but my followers will understand. That's it, I will post from my phone. It's genius! What? I can't post from my phone! There are people waiting for my post. I'm not an ego maniac or even close to it, but I know how it is when you are looking forward to reading a post and it doesn't come. A couple of my favorite bloggers don't post on the weekends and it drives me nuts.
All I want to do is scribble on my blog. I have so much to say and there is no internet connection in my house.
Suddenly my heart bleeds for people like Mark Twain, Thomas Jefferson, Ansel Adams, old Bill Shakespere, and Ben Franklin. The Hell they must have endured for all of those years. Waiting and waiting through sleepless nights and endless days for their internet connection to come up so that they could post on their blogs. For years they would wait only to meet their own fate before ever having the chance to post their pics, or read comments from their previous day's post.
6 days I waited until finally, I was back up and running. Last night, I sat in front of the keyboard and my new enormous monitor only to draw a complete blank. So much to say, so many thoughts that have built up over the last 6 days, what do I say first? Nothing.........Nothing at all. I went to sleep disappointed in myself for not having it all planned out. Do I talk about the holidays looming on the horizon? Do I talk about how my lack of any sort of relationship with my father has been poking the back of my mind lately? Do I talk about and post my friend's pictures which are completely amazing? So many options, so much anticipation, 6 days of wanting so badly to write only to come up with nothing? It's all there and I can't put it in any sort of order at the moment. I guess this post can be considered my, "Hi, I'm back" post, and tomorrow perhaps I will have it all sorted out.
