Summer Stasis

0809 fledgling.jpg

First off, I have to apologize.

I haven’t made this tiny space on the internet just to ignore or abandon it.  But I am working hard (always) on finding balance in life, and for the last two weeks or so that balance has tipped hard in the direction of spending less time on the computer.  Everyone is happier when the mama isn’t hunched over the keyboard in the morning to the detriment of breakfasts and chores, snapping “Quiet!  Mommy’s writing!”

I know things will even out again soon with the start of school and colder weather routines.  I will bundle the girls off to their classroom educations and then I’ll be able to ruminate a little longer in front of this screen in the mornings, cup of coffee beside me.  There is so much to write about, so many words working on coming together in coherent sentences up in my brain, but just now so little opportunity to transfer those sentences from brain to blinking cursor without someone melting down around me.

So.  August already almost half-way gone.  The tomatoes ripen on the vine, the baby birds have learned to fly and I muddle through finding that elusive equilibrium where I can.  And right now, most often, it’s in the golden fields buzzing with the sound of insects and in the stacks of picture books from the library and in the excitement of walking through the unfinished rooms of our farmhouse.

Places where the internet most conspicuously, and unfortunately, isn’t.

    Though I enjoy your writing very much, it’s good to see someone with their priorities straight. Good for you! I’ll take what I can get.

    And, truth be told, I’d rather see less-frequent posts of quality rather than both reader and writer trying to keep up with overly-frequent, lesser quality posts.

    Thanks for all your hard work, both as a writer AND a mom!

    And tell your girls “Hi!” from all us out here in Bloggerville!

    Never apologize for putting your kids first. As James Clark said you have your priorities straight. Your time for writing will come and when it does and it shows up in my reader I’ll be happy to read it. Until then enjoy what is left of the summer with your girls – they are times that you will never have again.

    Beautiful picture and I know what you mean with “Everyone is happier when the mama isn’t hunched over the keyboard “!!! Take care! Be there as much as you enjoy! And… forgive me, but what is Stasis?
