Out of site, out of mind

Something happened Friday and Saturday here. That something is nothing.

In fact, I didn't even think about this site one time either day. I didn't feel bad because nothing was scheduled to post. I didn't have any ideas for posts. I didn't even have the idea to have an idea for a post.

But, it is comforting to know that the site is here for when inspiration, no matter how paltry that inspiration is, hits.

The only person insisting on my posting here every day was me and it was an interesting, albeit unsustainable, experiment. Life is out there being lived and I have to briefly pause life to come here and write about life. The same goes with podcasting, sharing on Facebook, Tweeting, etc.

It's no different from when you were a kid and your mom expected you to write thank you notes for birthday gifts. Sure, I was thankful but I didn't want to put down the Atari controller long enough to write out a card!

It's a struggle. I want to create and share but there is so much life going on and the urge to play more and pause less is intensifying as the clock ticks down.
