From my friends?
If you happen to be amongst the diminishing group of bloggers that
remain online, then you will completely understand when I tell you
what my biggest challenge is.
Yes, writing is never an issue... when a subject comes into my little
guinea brain, the words just seem to follow.
The trouble is... finding that subject.
I have written this blog since March of 2006.
I began blogging at a time when bloggers were few...
then everyone blogged...
then most stopped blogging.
(Except for a few of us crazies... still here... still crazy after all these years!)
Every few months I seem to come to a crossroads.
I stop at the traffic signal and patiently wait for it to turn green
so that I can proceed.
And, eventually, it does.
But now, they've removed the traffic signals and replaced them with traffic circles,
and I find myself going round and round and round.
With each pass around the circle I see all of the subjects on which I have written.
That little voice inside my head tells me that I shouldn't repeat myself...
that I should stop circling and press onward.
The problem is - I can't decide which road to take.
This is where I need a little help.
Life on the farm is rhythmic... and a little circular as well.
To me, it's a fascinating study in our wonderful world and all
of those tiny miracles that happen each and every day.
To others, it might seem mundane.
However, I know that you are my people, and mundane is not a word
you would ever use to describe life in our little slice of heaven.
I am left with a feeling of great responsibility -
to give you what you enjoy,
and to give it to you fresh and new each time.
And so, I cannot seem to exit the circle.
I have options.
One being to turn off the engine and sit for a while, ie: not write as often.
Two: ask for directions.
This is the part where your input is of great value...
because it is you to whom I ask for direction.
On days such as this, when the sky is grey, the air is drizzly,
and all of our sweet animals are whiling away the hours lounging...
I need some ideas about what to write.
We've done this before... and it has helped me to continue.
So, if you don't mind... help a girl out?
Give me a little direction for those days when I am happy to sit
in front of a warm fire stitching away...
those days when I am at a loss for...
but at the same time, am quite contented.
