In case you missed me—I’m back. My last post was May 31st, and then I virtually disappeared. But, as I said, I’m back. I’m back for all the right reasons. And, I’m back for the blogging long haul. However, I feel I owe those who signed up to follow me a reason for my disappearance… so, I’ve thought up a few. Here they are:
- My dog ate my laptop.
- My dog peed on my laptop.
- I threw out my dog and the laptop.
- Abducted by aliens. (me, not the dog.)
- And finally… While adding the last period to my last post, I suffered a post traumatic posterior pain. A pain I postulate had something to do with a previous posterior puncture that made posturing before my PC (okay, my MacBook Pro) profoundly painful.
Enough! The truth is I started this blog because I wanted to blog, but I wasn’t sure what I was going to blog about. Hence, the title: Searching 4 Meaning. Perhaps I should have entitled it, Searching for a Subject?
By the end of May, I began thinking I wanted to make my blog more specific. I planned, in fact, to start a blog centered around science fiction writing. Also, as many parents will undoubtedly empathize with, summer was here and the kids were home from school. Does anyone else work at home? Do you feel my pain! I don’t care how old your kids are (and mine technically aren’t even kids anymore), when the kids come home, your time becomes their time.
In summary: I wasn’t sure if Searching 4 Meaning was the direction I wanted to go in anymore, and as my time was limited for the next few months, I took some time off to find myself—or rather, my cyber self.
What did I find? I discovered that, indeed, I will probably always be searching 4 meaning and so that title works perfectly. I do love Sci-Fi, and in the next few months look for exciting news regarding the eBook release of my new science fiction novel. On the other hand, somehow I always end up writing picture book ditties; and on that note, have even more exciting news about one that has been put to music by none other than award-winning children’s songwriter, Owen Duggan. More about both in future posts.
For now, I’m so happy to be back pondering the unlimited ponderables of the universe. Look for a new ponder each Thursday! (Yes, I know, ponder is not a noun, but in MY universe, it is!)
