I'm kind of laughing at myself over here. I make a new blog, then don't post on it for several days. What a way to start a new conversation ;)
The truth is, I'm fighting the Killer Sinus Fog. Not only does it sap my energy and make me feel like I just want to close my eyes, but it makes my brain slow. I look at words over and over and over again, and they still don't mean anything. Writing is even more out of the question, if coherency is anything of a goal.
While I am getting better, the blank page is still daunting. In fact, I think that's one of the reasons I hate sinus problems so much--they take some away some of the things I value most, like the ability to communicate effectively and well, and the ability to think and feel deeply and process what I find there.
Instead, I feel like I end up saving it all up, noting things I want to come back to later but that I know I just can't do justice to right now. I tow them with me through the fog but I know they're at the end of a long rope that, someday, I hope I'm able to reel in.
Meh. I hope I'm back to speed in a few days.
