I can’t write when my life is filled with stress.
I can’t write when my brain is filled with too many concerns.
I can’t write when my brain is tired and just needs a break.
These are reasons why I have been M.I.A. (missing in action) from this blog. I have missed my blog and my blogging readers and friends and those whose blogs I like to visit. I hope today is the beginning of my return to regular posting. My mother is finally on the road to recovery and strength. It has been a long, hard journey that has left me weary and trampled my creativity for a time. I have been trying to read, though, to keep my mind engaged as much as possible.
I have also been taking a refresher course in the Spanish language. I studied Spanish for three years in high school and have always loved the language and done very well at learning it. However, after high school, there weren’t many Spanish speaking people in our area and so I forgot some things, especially how to hold a conversation. Now there are many Spanish speaking people in our area and so I am thrilled to refresh the language. I have a wonderful young lady who is teaching me, but my last lesson will be on Wednesday, as she will be returning to Mexico at the end of the month to finish studying for her college degree. I will miss her and the fun classes we have had together, but I am excited to put my newly refreshed language to work whenever and wherever I can.
So, what have you been doing this summer?
