I have been suspiciously absent from reading other blogs or anything else in the category of the written word because I have been alarmingly removed from anything resembling spare time. I am on day 8 of a 10-day work stretch and logged in 25 hours of overtime this week. (too bad I’m on salary!!)
I miss the carefree hours of being able to have enough brain capacity to read on a recurring basis. This phenomenon happens frequently this time of year and I feel like I am missing an appendage when I cannot feed the creative appetite that yearns, incessantly, to be fed by words.
My attention span is non-existent. My ability to concentrate is tenuous. My capacity to hold a thought is…………………waning.
Next week is a quiet week at work, probably the last extensive time period that I will have to fill my desire to absorb words as quickly as I am able before the onset of summer. The list of books has been established. The sequential collection of email notifications has been queued, the wine has been stored at the proper temperature and the spot on the couch has been reserved.
I hope to see you on the blog (and book) side.
