Where are my comment emails, blog-hosting website? I cannot approve blog comments if I do not know they are there to be approved! Argh! In other news, I got dressed for Mardi Gras this morning (green blouse, gold jewelry, purple glasses frames). I'm twelve days early, which for me is right on time! Who wants pancakes?
Yes, this is going to be a Random Ramble. Partly that's because I still have no Glenscar news, though newly-acquired Ryan Kelly and Paul Byrom music may fix that. A couple of the songs on Ryan's "Life" make me wonder if he's secretly reading Glenscar... but I'll hold off on further comment until I get some words on the page.
But mostly, this is going to be random because, well, at the moment, so's my life. Anyone who's been around the weird little world of Anne B. Walsh for a while will know that I do not, in any way, shape, or form, like roller coasters... so of course, it makes perfect sense that my emotions have decided I should ride one ALL THE TIME NOW.
I don't know whether it's a leftover from the Christmas car crash, or whether it's accumulated tiredness, or something else altogether, but I'm having more and more trouble maintaining my equilibrium. When little things go wrong, whether at work or at home, they tip my balance a lot further than they used to, and that's frustrating.
It's especially frustrating because when I'm unbalanced, I don't write well. As I mentioned last time, I need a certain amount of distance and calm to get my word choices correct, to take the scenes I see inside my mind and translate them into language that will give you, O readers, at least a good approximation of my thoughts.
Now trust me, I'm not trying to say, "Oh noes, I cannot write, I shall never write again!" Not sure anything could really do that at this point. What I am saying is, "This is going to be a rough patch, and possibly an unproductive one for a while -- bear with me, please?" Along with a fair bit of "ARGH" but I think that one's understood.
So, having been sufficiently obvious for today, I shall sign off. Send me good thoughts and prayers to help get through the big nasty weather front that's bearing down, and I'll try and reward you with writing! Sampler Saturday is up next, and might even be on its proper topic -- wouldn't that be a shock? Thanks, as always, for reading!
