Rip Van Winkle




Well it’s been a long time since I was able to get in here and post anything. I never thought that the simple task of moving would upset the applecart this much.

Having not put pen to paper in so long is much like being lost in a maze. I now know what it feels like to have done a Rip van winkle, for it sure seems almost that long.

When I first thought about what to write on coming back, all kinds of stuff came to mind about the move, amongst which were a couple of funny items. Then real life things started to snowball and ideas vanished into the mist of time before I had the energy to make notes on anything. As a consequence things don’t always seem quite as funny the second time around.

This last month has been such a full slate but hopefully, things are on the up from here on. ~ This is not much of a new post back, but it is a start and I will leave you with the thoughts of better things to come shortly. I thank all who have kept an eye out for me, I will try and be here more frequently from now on. I just hope the pen will wake up.

C’ya

It'll wake up Eric. I think it's too much a part of you to just put down.

I'm glad to see you write again.

Good to see you back Eric.
A dry spell is a nice break once in a while. You're too much a writer to be dry for very long.

It was nice to be able to take a quick flip through the blogs again, a sure sign that life carries on Leon. I will try and get back to normal soonest. :)

Hello Janice, it's good to get started again. It does feel like it has been forever. Thank you for the compliments and the visit.

Dear Eric, it's lovely to see you back :-D
Moving house is one of the most stressful things to do,so you need to relax and rest a bit to get over your move. So just take your time and as long as you need to put pen to paper, or should I have said fingers to keyboard (LOL)...and the ink will come flowing back, quicker than you realise! :-D

Eric Valentine said...

Thank you for the welcome back Stacey. Moving can be a chore, but things will fall into place again. Now where's my scribbler! :)
