Posthumously yours, LJ

If there’s an inspired topic left in me, it’s sunk so far into the Bermuda Triangle of my subconscious it might as well be a pickle fork from the cutlery set on the Edmund Fitzgerald. It’s walked the gang plank. It slipped out through the hole in the hull. It’s covered in barnacles and is now home to tiny one-celled creatures who have no idea there is any “me” up there in the daylight world.

I have cravenly taken to posting my friend’s art. Not that I don’t love it and didn’t want to share it. I did – but just between me and you, I’m also coming up empty on the topic front.

The problem is that I’m calm. Calm. I think that’s what it is. I’ve observed other people in this state and believe that is the description for it. When I’ve experienced it myself, because it is alien to me, it is usually followed by the uncomfortable thought that perhaps I am not merely “calm” but am actually deceased. It’s just that I haven’t fallen down yet.

So. I haven’t fallen down yet. And it’s been quite some time. I have to conclude that I have passed through the dangerous stage (deceased but still moving) and have made it to “calm.”

And I have to tell you, I’m disappointed. Really. It’s nothing to write home about.
It’s nothing to write about at all.

Thank you for checking the site. I’m sure I’ll return to my usual overexcited, over-opinionated, over-sharing self any day now. And I’m sure the universe will oblige by sending a cream pie in the direction of my face if I use up one more word bellyaching about life becoming too peaceful.

Looking forward to the return of the over-share, cream pie or no cream pie... although calm can be nice too.

And thanks for the nice wishes. :)

Well I like you calm. But I also like you opinionated .... just keep posting, OK?

Still, this was an entertaining post. You have a marvelous way of stating that you have nothing to say - the first paragraph was quite amusing. I'll be watching for more!

Melinda - that's the toughest saga of getting good news I ever heard. For that alone, you deserve congratulations!

Mary - It rarely lasts. I'd prefer "serenity" but I have a feeling that's in the cateogory of certainty and large cash prizes.

PFatale - You liked it enough to say it twice!

That pickle fork analogy was the tops! Thanks for the laugh I sorely needed at 6:54 this morning.

Love! xo

Well, you're in pretty good form for someone who has nothing to say...
