It’s not laziness if you’re not inspired…

Geez… for a while there I really felt like I was on top of this blogging thing. Posting again. Trying to post regularly. Trying to post something good (trying….). But then I hit this wall. This wall named October.

No details, but my private life is a bit of a mess. Well… more than a mess. A complete cock-up is more like it. And while I had thought I might find solace in blogging I’ve actually found it really difficult of late to feel motivated. To feel communicative. I just want to keep everything inside. I’ve noticed how I’ve backed away from most everything I do on the web: CNET, Facebook, Gizmodo, Twitter, etc.

So I’ve decided that for right now I’m not going to continue to feel badly about not posting and instead simply accept I’m not ready at this juncture to post. I mean, why fight it? It only becomes a horrible cycle of not feeling compelled to communicate. Then feeling bad that I’m not keeping up my blog (even though I do have some photography related things to talk about), which makes me want to write even less instead of inspiring me.

I know… what a dork.

Fortunately I’m going to be out of town for a few days, visiting my parents, who will be vacationing in a small mountain town in North Carolina. Perhaps a few days away from here… from home… might help lift me from this funk.

But I make no promises.

No. That’s not true. I will make one: I’ll be back.

In the mean time…

“This is the last song I will every sing”

For those of you who don’t already know and for those of you who do, consider this a gentle reminder…

I’m not home right now. This means I’m somewhere other than home. Oddly enough I’m home though.

See, I’m not at my home, but at my parent’s home, which used to be my home, so I’m sort-of home, but not really home. But I’m home.

Home.

Anywho……I’m down in Florida to spend the week as my sister, my rather pregnant sister (triplets if you must know), is having her baby shower, etc. Here is my mother and sister (pic taken 2008/11/26 when she was about 20-weeks preggers)

Mom & Sis-Flickr

I have brought my camera and I’m pretty certain I will take some pictures, but I haven’t decided to what extent I wish to annoy everyone. I’d love to capture the moments, but I’d also like to partake of them and this is always the problem for the shutterbug in the family: to take pictures or to not and therefore be more involved in what is going on around them. Hopefully I will find some happy middle-ground.

In the mean time it is rather unlikely that I will be posting here, on WP, or on Flickr, so you will just have to get on without me for a week or so. Try not to take it so hard.
