It’s Friday morning, the first day of August. In July I only put 10 posts in this space, although I did write some other things that appeared elsewhere on the web.
I didn’t write as much as I normally do because other things were going on in my life, and taking the time to sit down and sort it all out here seemed a bit self-indulgent. Nobody cared about this but me, of course, but I had some things to get right before I could get back to doing this. After all, if you don’t eat your meat, you can’t have any pudding.
Since I’m at an ice skating rink, as I so often am, an ice skating analogy feels appropriate here. It was as if I had fallen on the ice for this summer. More accurately, it felt like I had been knocked down. And I needed to get back up in order to move ahead.
Nobody likes to be down like that. But remaining in that state is not an option, either. However it happens, and whatever it takes, the end result has to be getting back up. And it feels as if this has happened in my case.
It’s onward and upward from here…..
