No, this is not a new series where I have writer's block once a week. Or at least I hope not.
I sat at my computer this morning at 5 am, totally blank. I noodled around on the internet trying to find some inspiration (which is almost never where inspiration appears). I began a few words of a post that I abandoned for lack of adequate interest and research. I began a few words of a second post and closed it out for the same reason.
And at 5:41, I gave in to the truth. For the first time since January 29, when, under the umbrella of practice makes perfect, I committed to myself to post 5 days a week, I can't think of anything to say.
Perhaps it's because you guys gave me such love yesterday and now the pressure is on.
But more likely, it is simply the cycle of inspiration and the effects of tiredness and a busy work life that has nothing to do with these pages.
Either way, the words are missing.
And yet, look what we have here: words on a page.
You know what they say. Showing up is half the battle. Also, practice makes perfect.
In truth, I think sometimes showing up might be the whole battle. And practice makes space for more practice, better practice, practice again tomorrow.
See you then.
p.s. The Ease of Wanting
