Taken aback

Hey, I put some new shoes on!*

I had a great weekend.  It was good to get out of the chair and away from the computer screen.  Well, not completely away.  I visited a few blogs, answered a few comments, checked email, explored new possibilities.  That sort of thing.  But I spent more time away than here than usual of late, and that was lovely.  I have to tell you that my post on Friday was a bit of a shock to me.  Not when I posted it of course, because I knew what I had written.  I was surprised when my mind and fingers found themselves in agreement about not participating in NaBloPoMo this year.  I hadn’t consulted myself about it.  It was just there, the decision, in spite of having made preparations to participate.  I am pleased I followed my heart.  Once I hit publish on Friday’s post, I felt a sense of great relief.

*From Paolo Nutini‘s New Shoes.  The song is semi-appropriate for my recent life and times.
