“Time ake up, Mommy. Make panpakes?”
That’s what Lars used to say when he was a toddler. “Panpakes” was his favorite breakfast.
While I’m not sure how long (or if) it will last, it’s time to “ake up.” I look forward to reconnecting with you all here.
I don’t know what happened exactly, but the whole Covid mess took me out of the writing habit. I’ve dropped the occasional post now and then since March of 2020, when everything fell to crap, but as you’ll see if you root around in that time period, the writings are few and far between.
This morning, I got up early and started the laundry. When I checked email, there was a reminder notice from my domain provider that I needed to renew finkweb.org. That got me thinking…do I want to pay upwards of $300/year to keep this little circus going, or do I want to give up my erstwhile dream of being a real writer, and just concentrate on other things?
Well, for today, the answer is “A.” In fact, as I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole of reading old posts from 2009 and whatnot, I’m overcome by nostalgia that, I confess, is enjoyable. I don’t want to just trash all these experiences — many with you, my fiends — and let the whole project die a quiet death.
Not yet, anyway.
So if you’re still with me, check in! Let’s test out the comment script to see if it still works. And as always, if something looks hinky, let me know, and I’ll get it fixed.
