Hello! I'm back...

Hello!  It's hard to believe, but it has been almost 2 years since I last wrote a post for this blog.  I'm not sure why it's taken so long for me to get back to writing.  It's certainly not that my life has been boring so I had nothing to write about!  It's probably just the opposite: my life has been so full that I haven't had time or the right frame of mind or the right environment.  If you are a writer, you will probably know that you need quiet and calm to create.  Despite the fact that I'm retired, I have had only rare moments of quiet that are conducive to writing.

I tend to write at night.  It seems to be the time when I am most creative.  However, night time is usually the time when I socialize.  I often spend time with my adult son talking and/or watching TV.  My husband and I also have a pretty active social life: going out with friends, attending live performances, experiencing new restaurants, taking short road trips to explore and geocache.

Whatever the reasons, I have missed writing.  I miss crafting the words to express ideas.  I miss finding visuals to go along with my writing.  I miss the rare interaction with readers.  I've had a lot of ideas bouncing around in my head for awhile but never got to the point of writing them down.

This past weekend we had dinner with a friend who writes for a living.  I had so much fun talking with her about a wide variety of topics, and it made me realize that it's time to start writing again.  So, I'm back...  

Have you found your joy today?
