Well, I shouldn’t say that. I’ve been known to be without speech at key moments in time – at the end of Lion King and American Beauty, and for 20 minutes after. During the whole of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and for about two hours after. When faced with grand surprises (puppies, 20-foot tall Christmas trees, and trips). When presented with public declarations of love, and/or engagement rings. Even then, I generally know what to say. Something along the lines of “Yes” or “I love you too.”
I don’t get writer’s block, at least the way people describe the feelings of writer’s block. If I have to write something but need a break, I do the walk away method, or the call a friend method, or the go shopping for hot sundress method, or the eat ice cream with extra rainbow sprinkles method. If I don’t have to write something, I may not want to write. I may be too fried from SITS Girls articles, blog commenting, lengthy emails, and three posts a week – generally no more or no less, thank you very much.
And what I do get is busy – busy with packing for this weekend’s beach vacation (I may actually relax). Busy with letting Des linger in the sandbox at Scarlet’s camp. Busy with resting my tired, overthinking head. Busy with summer reading or making Wordless Wednesday posts that are actually supposed to be nearly wordless, and are getting to be three paragraphs in already!
So I sat down yesterday and today and started catching up on all of the stories that happened in between the stories you see photos about. I do that. I jump around. A little here, and a lot there. There are moments that fall through the cracks, though. In between editing all of the photos from getting Athena, and then the kittens, to the graduations and birthday parties and so many other big things, I forgot to upload and edit the photos that tell less of a story – or just do so in fewer photos. Everything else.
So that’s what I have for you today – in this nearly but not even remotely close to nearly Wordless Wednesday. I have a quirky bunch of photos from early Spring on. And I think they tell stories – I can tell you the stories or you can tell me some stories. It will be a “Choose Your Own Adventure” kind of thing. If you want to hear more, just tell me the photo and I’ll tell you more:
