I had written an amazing blog. The best one ever. So where is it? That’s the big question. Your guess is as good as mine. Well, not entirely true. My guess may be a bit more informed since I was the main character in this mess. I will put on my deerstalker hat and try to sleuth out what happened.
Let’s start at the very beginning a very good place to start. (Thank you Maria Von Trapp.) As I began typing the words flowed through my fingers onto the computer like a river rushing out to sea. This was so not like my usual writing efforts which can border on laborious. I was definitely in rarified air. Surely, you could understand how chagrinned and dismayed I was when it all disappeared in a Nano-second.
This rarified air, alternate universe, zen zone or twilight zone was a once in a lifetime experience. I tried to deduce what was really going on. Had the muses returned to inspire me? Was it that different blend of coffee I had with my lunch? Did Tallulah the Unicorn emanate magic sparkle dust? I could speculate ad nauseum. The sad truth is that I will probably never know. I will, however, always wonder.
You may be curious about the topic of my brief dive into brilliance. I sure would be. Here’s the thing. I had written 3 Pulitzer Prize worthy paragraphs. All that remained to complete the blog was a couple of conclusory sentences. It seemed a good time to take a needed break. I mindfully hit the save key and took my leave. Upon my return to finish up, there before me was a blank screen. Say what? I had been focused and deliberate about being certain to hit save. Yet there was nothing. Nada. I searched the insides and outsides, the up sides and down sides and nary a word to be found. Gone. All that creativity and brilliance gone, gone, gone. I sighed and ditched my deerstalker hat for all the good it didn’t.
And so, friends, I regret to inform you there is no blog this week.
