Absence makes the heart grow blogger

I haven't blogged much in the past month or two. To be honest, I've been too busy to realize how busy I've been. You know, it's like when you're so deprived of sleep you actually feel okay. But it's misleading, and unhealthy. You're just really friggin' tired.

Out of necessity, and for the time being, I've taken a day job, which saps a lot of my time and energy. Toss in a one-hour commute each way, and not much is left. At nights and on weekends I do my creative stuff, all the time awaiting my next creative gig.

I did submit a short piece to the CBC's The Arts Tonight. Not sure yet if they like it. If not, maybe I should write about my current day job - about a writer who has to work in a mortgage underwriting department. Writer vs. underwriter. Hm. Hmm. Back off, it was my idea first!

...Well, then there's my family life, which continues to make its merry way, supplying me with material I may tap into at some point. It certainly sustains me in general.

And I draw blogger inspiration from Joe Mahoney, who produces, writes, commutes, and more - regularly. And hey, he's 41 (you'll read on his blog) whereas I'm still 39 ... for three more months! Count 'em.

Speaking of time, my time away from my blog has shown me I can't stay away. For good or ill, I will blog again.

...Actually, you're reading it. Well wasn't that an anticlimax!

Sorry, I'm rusty.

Until next time...

Later.
