Good Morning

Sunlight cuts through the mist, and so begins a new day.



I tell you I’m okay but, really, I’m not.

I’ve lost my tools, my motivation.

Where did they go? They were right here…a few months ago.

I’m in a slump.

I’ve broken promises I made to myself.

I’ve forgotten the importance of putting on the oxygen mask before assisting others with theirs.

Maybe I’m the one who needs assistance this time.

I’m Baaack

We’re 10 days into 2014, but since this is my first post of the year let me start by saying Happy New Year.

Ah, it feels good to sit down and write. I realize not many folks see my posts, but as Cyril Connolly said, “Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.”

No self. I understand that feeling. And after three weeks of having three kids home on winter break (it was extended a week, thanks to the Polar Vortex), I’m finally taking a little time for myself. Thus, the long overdue blogging!

Oh yeah–the cobwebs I dusted off my keyboard weren’t of Miss Havisham proportion, but they were impressive enough. This past spring, I intended to start a new routine with my blog. After I joined the Book Hungry Book Club, I figured I’d at least post a book review once a month. Alas, I fell behind after the first two reads. Terrible, I know.

A fresh start is synonymous with a new year, though, and I’m going to take advantage! The next several—actually seven—posts will be reviews of the books we Book Hungry gals read June through December. So, stay tuned!
