Well, it seems I have descended, yet again, into the pit of writer's block. Hhhm, maybe that's not quite accurate. I can think of subjects to write about, I suppose. I just can't muster the enthusiasm to write anything about those subjects. Well, okay, so maybe that is writer's block also. I know after 6+ years of publishing a blog that's hardly anything unusual but it's a bit interesting to me because I have felt slightly more enthusiastic about several other endeavors lately. Maybe those things are drawing my attention way from here. I guess it's just a combination of things going on with and around me. I still go to the Doc twice a week for treatment and I often feel like poo afterwards, sometimes the next day also if he does new stuff. I'm hoping that side effect becomes less and less noticeable. Many world or U.S. events have had me quite bummed out lately. Seems there is so much bad going on; it's hard not to get discouraged at times. Seems to be less and less interest in the self-sufficiency/ DIY ideals these days. I think a lot of people read such subjects just out of curiosity, not real interest in doing. Maybe I'm wrong? What do you think?
My physical diagnosis seems to have added yet another layer of why I'm weird, etc etc. 'Ah yes, you're that odd, opinionated woman that advocates for other women to do stupid things (like weld), grow food, not spend their life shopping and now you claim to have a condition that can't be seen and no one's ever heard of...M'kaaay, right. We'll get back to you on that'. Not.
And yesyesyesyes I know the mantra..Don't pay attention to other folks. They're the ones who are crazy. Live your own life. And I do..but sometimes it's lonely. I thank goodness for Jack and my Russian friends. Jack is always there to help. Russians don't care about politics or religion. They're just happy to have jobs and get to visit someone's dacha, if not their own.
So, any words for the not-so-wise? I thought we might play a game also since I think most of ya'll like my blog and enjoy coming here. You give me one word and I write a post from it. And not something like "chicken" or "garden" either!! Something a tad more removed or abstract from my normal subjects. Your call will be answered in the order in which it is received so please remain patient. Exclusions may vary.
