Blog Block - yeah, I just made that up.
If it's a thing, I have it. Not just with my own but with just about every blog in the world.
Am I alone with my blog block? Certainly feels that way.
I have no desire to read. I have no desire to write.
The only thing I have any desire for at the moment is to look at beautiful, natural things and get high on colour.
There is no problem with painting, making, taking pictures and staring at the sky when I have time to myself, I just don't want to write.
Blog block is becoming social media block too.
Time spent on social media unsettles me because it feels pointless and means I am not immersed in colour and everything coming to life now that it's March.
So I compromised and made this picture to put on my blog because it's how I feel right now. The words I put on it are all I can say about life as I deal with my aging family.
It is the only thing that comforts me since my much loved 96 year old Aunty left us back in February and my own parents are in the winter of their lives.
Emotions well up frequently at the moment and all I can say to myself is:
To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.
A time to be born, a time to die...
And its the time to die bit that is getting to me as I do all the things I have to do right now.
I know I am not alone in this. There are so many of us 'boomers' watching the same decline of the elderly in our families.
Blog block is the least of my worries I guess.
For the time being, I will be back here with a picture or two when the mood takes me and if it doesn't, well the tumble weed will be tumbling right through here until i get my blog mojo back.
But what if it doesn't come back?
Has blog block ever hit you and if so, what did you do?
