All right, so three months have gone by … apologies! Guess I needed a break from writing; or maybe writing needed a break from me. Either way, time to start up again!
What have you missed? Not a lot, to be honest. Here’s a quick recap:
December: Sinus and ear infections knocked me down right at the beginning, letting up just enough for me to enjoy a brief weekend visit with my grandmother in Miami. Although energy levels stayed low, I enjoyed a serendipitous new year’s eve, wherein I was reunited with my old dresser at a friend’s college friend’s party; he’d bought it from me as I was leaving DC last time.
January: Seeing a new podiatrist relieved much of my foot pain, which although not a 100% gone is vastly improved. Energy level spiked back up mid-month, prodding me to get out and bike absurd distances (much to my bum’s distress).
February: Drop in energy level coincides with head-cold symptoms again.
Sure, there’s been more than just this, but that’s a basic review of the last quarter year. I can’t quite believe we’re in the second month of 2013 already. As I try to kick this latest of bugs I can feel an inner prodding to go DO things, be active and social and busy. I can feel myself becoming sedentary, since health, weather and feet have conspired to keep me from walking much.
Themes for 2013:
- Figure it out (“"it” changing depending on my mood, but most often meaning life, love and the pursuit of happiness)
- Choices (veganism; consumer responsibility; locovore habits; life directions)
Work goes well, keeps me busy and paid. Family goes well, with happy parents, funny brother and long-lived grandparents. Soul-searching goes on, and on, and on, seemingly with no end or resolution.
And writing – well, this is the first writing I’m doing in awhile; hopefully it is the beginning of a trend!
