: mark me absent :

There will be no post today, seems I’ve misplaced my motivation. Oh, it’s around here somewhere, I just can’t lay my hands on any enthusiasm at the moment. And I really don’t have the energy to go looking for it. Hell, motivation could be anywhere, you know? It’s as slippery and elusive as ideas tend to be. One minute here, the next minute gone  — * poof *

I don’t have a note from my doctor; I wasn’t called for jury duty; I just don’t feel like doing a post, okay? I don’t feel like doing anything, frankly. I need a day to wallow in sunshine, immersed in a book. My only goal at the moment is avoiding reality.

The planet Earth, unfortunately, offers no rest for the weary at present. And I’m really, really weary. Bigly weary. So I’ll take refuge in an alternate reality; do like an ostrich and bury my head in something. A movie, maybe. Or brownies. Perhaps some music — The Piano Guys are soothing. Wait, I know, I’ll pull a Rip Van Winkle and sleep for twenty years.

Well, I’ll find something. Please don’t wait up, this could take a while.

  1. Thank goodness there was no post today. That means I don’t have to comment. Quite frankly, I’m fried! Exhausted, I say, and have no energy for some clever comment to prove myself worthy of your gift. Thanks for the break ;-)

    1. You know, that’s my plan for the day. I’m going to sit outside and store up as much sunshine as possible. Like the squirrels with their nuts. Winter approaches, it’s time to prepare. And thank you, mia ☺️

  3. I’ve been not feeling it either. I think it’s because school’s starting up again. It must be something going around. : P – It is good to take a break every once in a while though. We all should take a break every once in a while.

      1. I feel like the same thing is happening to me. At least I have the next two days off to (maybe) catch up. I probably will end up being lazy though. lol


  4. As a child-writer I was often told by my English teachers- “If you don’t have anything to write about- just start writing”, and being 7, 8 years old I remember finding this to be more confusing than my mom insanely claiming that my room was NOT clean yet I could not figure out what on Earth was not clean about it.. I mean… I had managed to shove ever thing under my bed and out of sight! lol

    With a bit more age this always stuck with me. Every single time I hit “writer’s block” the sounds of my teachers’ voices telling me to write even though I couldn’t write- resonated in my mind. And the irony of it was always fascinating to me….how even when I was convinced that I had nothing to say- once pen hit paper- I couldn’t get myself to stop.

    The beauty of writing is exemplified in the heart of this post….. in the heart of you.
    And it is appreciated. It’s the littlest things that make the strongest impacts.
