Hello, again, friend. Grab a cup of your favorite beverage, sit down and lend me your ears. I tried to be proactive about this muse thing. I checked Craig’s List, Ebay, Kajiji, the classifieds, temp agencies, mediums, et al. Nada. It was exhausting and disappointing. Nonetheless, I refused to give up, because you never know. At that point it seemed like a good idea to push the pause button, take a breath, take a walk, do something different for awhile. After all, experts say that when stuck or overwhelmed, taking a break , moving, doing something different creates an internal space allowing new possibilities to emerge.
I need to circle back to why I got into this not-for-profit blog business. It was about having too much time on my hands and nothing productive to do. Fast forward to the present and it’s déjà vu all over again. Right, Yogi? Here I am with too much time on my hands and nothing productive to do. Are you listening, muses? In case you didn’t get it, this is an S.O.S.
Back to the first time around. I’ve written about the dearth of hobbies in my life. I’ve never quite latched onto anything for any sustained length of time. Nagging at me from the recesses of my mind are the words of many friends, “You should write a children’s book.” You can guess what I do with anything that begins “you should.” Yet, those words are haunting me.
In my current desperation for some creative endeavor, I’ve toyed with that notion. As I’ve mused (no pun intended) about the possibility, I still come up empty. That’s why I have put the call out for some muse to come to my rescue and help me figure out the best writing path to take.
Ok. Just one more thing for today. Feel free to take a moment to refresh your beverage. When I began telling you my woes, I sat down with a mug of Bengal spice tea. I’ve continued to drink that tea as I write. Hmmm. Could there be something to that? More likely grasping at anything that resembles a straw. Me thinks the truth is in the initials of the Bengal Spice tea – B.S.
Well, friend, I’ve kept you long enough. Probably too long. Let’s see what happens next week. Thanks again for listening.
