Please forgive and indulge me– for the unintended hiatus. I have moved from the urban sprawl just outside new york city to the country of the Appalachian mountains. Not so far down that you can hear the twang of country music, but far enough into the mountains that the faint air of banjos can be heard in the trees. The land out here is truly beautiful and something about it does ring true for me but I doubt that I will stay here, this isn’t the direction I had been meant to go in.
So my point was, though my absence was unintentional, my life is pretty well up in the air. The uncertainty is exciting and pushes me out of my comfort zone. Let’s be true- the woods already have me at a disadvantage.
But I will say this, the woods and the glories of these natural environs have been good for my writing overall as THERE IS NOTHING ELSE TO DO OUT HERE! But in that regard I like it. But there is a time to everything and the silence out here can sometimes be deafening.
