The Royal Wedding

Did anyone watch the Royal Wedding yesterday? Lol. Okay, enough with that joke. : ) I didn't wake up at 3 am EST to watch the ceremony in real time, though I might have if I hadn't put in a long day writing and found my way to bed just shortly before that. I watched recaps of the ceremony later in the day. I think, though, I missed out on quite a bit.

The recaps that I saw were actually highlights of the event, rather than full recaps, recapturing all that took place. Sure there was the bride's arrival and the awaited reveal of her gown. Her march down the aisle on her father's arm. The reciting of the vows. All of this, though, I found, was broadcast in clips, rather than in one steady stream and it took the immediacy out of it for me. Though I knew what I was watching was being telecast hours later, I would have liked the illusion that the lovely event was actually taking place at that moment. : )

It's been a while . . .

It's been a while since I've posted anything here. Life and writing have been busy and I've been having a difficult time keeping up. As a result, this blog was put on hold.

Part of the reason it's been so long between posts, is that I haven't known what to write about, what to focus on. Gotta have a focus? Gotta have a theme, right?

Or not.

When I started thinking that I'd like to begin posting here again, I realized that I didn't want the structure of a theme or have a narrow focus. I didn't want any formality at all. The idea of just hanging out here, "talking" about anything and everything feels so right.

So that's what I'm going to be doing here. Talking. If you happen by, I hope you'll join me in the conversation. I would so love to talk with you.

Happy Easter weekend!
