Quieter

I know it's been quieter around here lately.

Good things are brewing.  Things I'm almost ready to share.  (I actually just need to find the time to sit down and write about them in a way that works for sharing.)

But, in the meantime, I find myself with less to share.

Without the job that I'm daily realizing was a way larger source of stress in my life than I ever thought or knew, I don't feel the need to gripe daily.  And without that job, I don't have to curb my social life quite so significantly, and have been seeing people I know and love, and sharing the things on my heart with them, verbally.

And I suppose the blog has suffered for that.

In the meantime, well, I'm coming back, and making plans to be here more regularly again, with more than just the daily 5 lists.

But I'm also enjoying the quiet.  I think I was pressuring myself to have something to say, or write, or gripe about.  To show up 2-3 times a day.  I'm not into having that pressure right now.

This is holding true in my email life, too.  I'm hitting delete way more often, instead of forcing myself to read or reply to things I'm not all that interested in.  I'm thinking about simpler, and quieter a lot.

So, I'm enjoying the quiet.  But I'll be back!
