(… with apologies to Huey Lewis & the News …)
Yeah, I been blog-gone since last Friday — for what I think are very good reasons:
- I was tired.
- I needed to rest.
Both of which will not exactly be news to the regular readers of this space — or to anyone who knows me. What with all the stressors of the last year-plus, “being tired/needing to rest/not really knowing how to rest” has become a regular theme of my life and writing. That’s been compounded in the last couple of weeks, as my wife Nina has gone back to work as a Special Education assistant (more on that later this week), and I’ve had to pick up sole care during the days for Sean again. So my energy level, not high in the first place, took another dive.
Thus, I’m taking another run at learning how to rest. And, with God’s help, I’m trying a new tack.
