“One day when I get old, will I remember living?
Will anybody know I came and went?”
– Christopher Andrus, December Shivers
I’m sorry I left you all with such a tease of a post before, but as Corinne and I were on our trip, I got in a little over my head with what I wanted to do on this blog, and so I didn’t have much of a chance to update stuff while we were on the road. Pictures are up on facebook, but I do plan on updating more here too. Problem was once I got back, I’ve been wall to wall with work.
So I’m still going to update you with pictures and such from mine and Corinne’s adventures, however, I’m also adding a new category to this blog – Family Stories. While on our trip, we heard many family stories, and I’d like to share those with you here, and I figured they didn’t necessarily need to be in the context of this recent trip.
So that’s my plan. I remember a time when I would update this blog all the time with various stories and writings that at the very least I found amusing, and I don’t know if it’s a lack of inspiration, a loss of focus, or a busy-ness in my professional and musical life that have caused me to not update anymore, but it’s likely a combination of all of those things. Whatever it is, I just don’t have the blogging instinct anymore, and I want it back. I have twitter and facebook, and I try to update those, but I’ve never been about updating just for updating’s sake, but rather I want to be saying interesting, funny, controversial, and meaningful things (even if it may only be those things to 2 or 3 people :-p).
So stay tuned, as I really do hope to get that instinct back to some extent, but with time and energy being at a premium these days, I’m definitely facing an uphill battle.
