I think it was the purported demise of the Postal Service that did it. When I said when I started LettersHead because people aren’t writing letters anymore I never thought it would come to this. It could also be that, after 10+ months of benign neglect I checked in on LettersHead and found out it went on without me, collecting hits and links and daring me to start writing again or pull the plug for real. Or maybe it’s because my kids are in school and I broke my foot and I can’t drive and I tend to drink too much coffee. In any case, Lettershead is back and I am going to try again at an epistolary narrative. Cabin fever aside, some things have happened over the past few months that seem to removed some of the roadblocks to writing; I need to test those barriers to see if they are indeed ready to tumble. As my friends would say, “good luck with that.”
But I didn’t really give up on the random slice-of-life observations that appeared in this space before. Autism drops too many choice moments into my life for that, so those can be found at the blog I started in my endless quest for useful places to put things that are cluttering my mind. It’s called I Wouldn’t Have Missed It and you can find it here.
Finally, I have to give credit to my dear friend M. over at Life in A Skillet. She sent me As Always, Julia and she proves time and again that blogs are both worth reading and writing if you put equal parts heart and mind into it.
