I have been conspicuous by my absence, haven’t I? Actually, I haven’t been absent, just lazy or unmotivated or busy or…anyways! It’s easy to let life get in the way of blogging, but life is more important and it’s been quite busy, lately–in a good way.
I think the other thing is that I’ve been caught up in all this election
crap stuff. I haven’t been this fired up about politics since the Bush era. It was during his second term that I became very disillusioned by politics–and government, in general. Now, I feel like this country is fighting for its life and, once again, we have no “ideal” candidate, just the lesser of two evils, so to speak. I don’t normally discuss politics because I want to keep my blog lighthearted, for the most part, and politics is one of those topics that can cause so much unpleasant discourse. So, I save all that for Facebook. 🙂
One thing I’ve learned about blogging: it is not necessary to write a book complete with pictures, which is what I tend to do–often inadvertently. So, that being said, I want to try to blog daily and plan to make it my New Years resolution. We have a lot of changes coming up in the next 8-9 months, but even if I simply say “hello!”, I will try to post something.
And now, I leave you with this:
Beautiful, isn’t it? This is the time of year when I feel my most homesick. Thankfully, there have been lots of photos posted of my beloved New England and the amazing colors!
