A New Beginning

whoopI want to start blogging again. Any objections?

I have more to say. Showering is particularly problematic because I get ideas whilst the water pours over my skin. My mind has nothing to do but look at pure white tiles. It idles and then sparks into life. Flashes of genius penetrate and generate thoughts. Then they just … disappear. It’s sad when stuff disappears without trace so I want to share it with you instead. Would you allow this?

I’ll understand if you say that you will not have me (no I bloody well won’t!)

I’ll accept it if you reject me and send me away (like heck I will!)

I’ll go quietly into the dark if you don’t want me (not true – I’ll rage and rage!)

Anyhoo, here I am again – like it or lump it.

(and by the way – I missed you too)

      • Happy New Year! Life is really good (ups and downs as to be expected). I really missed you and I’m going to make a concerted effort to sign on more often…as you know, it can be easy to get caught up in other priorities, and before you know it, it’s been weeks between postings and reading. How are things with you? Did you have enjoyable holidays? πŸ™‚

        • Happy New Year to you too. πŸ˜€
          Don’t make effort to do something that takes you away from doing something else that you’re already enjoying – that’d be my advice to you. Truly. If the holidays are good – keep on keeping on. πŸ™‚
          Life is good here. My wife fills my life with people and I make effort not to pick my nose at the dinner table. Luckily it’s been Christmas and I have a binding agreement that I’m allowed to lick my plate on these occasions (or was that just on my birthday … I forget). Still – we live and breathe. πŸ™‚

          • I’m so happy to know that your sense of humor is still in tact, life is treating you well, that you have the love of a great partner…and that you and I have an ongoing connection. πŸ™‚

          • Connections, connections, connections – that’s apparently what gives the most joy in life. I’ve been reading a book by Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu – that’s what they say. I must admit that it’s a hard sell for me, but I can see the sense (underneath my hard head and cynicism). πŸ™‚
            S’funny what you say about a sense of humour – my wife still doesn’t get mine. Two decades on and I’m still explaining. πŸ˜€


        • Strange, I thought I’d replied to your comment here. Perhaps not. Or more likely, another of my personalities got to it before I did. And by that, I mean another of my profiles. I have more than one blog and I’m trying to pull them together. Hmm.
          But hey – hope you’re having a good day, Truly. πŸ™‚

    • I missed you and yet I didn’t – does that sound strange? I guess I’m all about loving the moment and enjoying the view. Do you think about home when you’re at the top of a mountain after an invigorating climb? πŸ™‚
      But yes, it’s good to be back, Miri. How have the days treated you? What has life told you?

      • I feel the same Rob, I missed you but I didn’t. I guess life goes on, people come in and out of our lives, both online and in person and we learn to deal with and live in the β€œnow”. I agree, when you’re at the top of that mountain, that’s what we focus on. πŸ™‚
        Glad you’re glad to be back. Me? I’m well. Life, with all its ups and downs, is mostly good. I’m happy and following my passion with a focus on my writing and doing what I love. You?

        • Agreeing is such an agreeable way to pass the time. πŸ™‚
          Me (me, me)? Well, I’m working on a little project that’s kind of secret but will be revealed in due course and aside from that – you know – the usual stuff – eating, walking, working, talking, sleeping, waking, burping, fakin’. It’s all good. πŸ™‚
