“Madness need not all be breakdown. It may also be break-through. It is potential liberation and renewal as well as enslavement and existential death.”
I suppose this last week could be considered madness of a sort. Unplugged from the blogosphere, facebook, twitter, and everything except email—and that sparingly. Madness for certain, yes?
I am inclined to hope for the “break-through” part. I’m also inclined to think I’m a bit enslaved, too. ;) Either way, I’ve paid a lot of attention to my Word Processing program this week and several pencils have been worn down to nubs. My poor husband was a bit enslaved also, forced to talk story structure with me until the wee hours of the morning. I’d claim that I’ll never put him through it again but the man’s a genius. Genius. I’m mining that vein of gold until he kicks me out. (Don’t do that, baby. I love you.)
You should know that I did miss you all, quite a lot, and those first few days were an exercise in my self-restraint. I’m actually proud that I had any! I’m glad to be back, happy to “see” all of you again. I can’t deny that Unplugged Week was good for me and I may participate in it again.
In the mean time, I’d like to know how you all are. Tell me about your last week, your efforts, your successes. Fill me in.
All my best,
P.S. I’m going to work on being more structured around here. When I work out the details, I’ll let you know. Take care, everyone!
