Time Out aka A Reason for the Silence

I may be absent from blogging for a while for various reasons:

I'm tired. I work long days when you factor in leaving the house at 6:30 for the gym, then the hour commute to work, a full day of work, then the hour commute home, normally home again about 6:30pm. From there it can take me anywhere from 30minutes to 2 hours to clean, prep, cook, clean and then prep for lunch... While I can blog at work - I don't honestly like to, shockingly I don't feel like it's the place for it, and yes I am aware that I'm doing it right now...

I'm thinking.
I know, I do too much of that already - but I'm trying to rationalize something that I don't even know what it is - I know that makes it a whole lot clearer.

I'm talking
. While could be argued that this is talking - it's not directly interactive - thus why I'm seeking community. Talking about what? About how I found what I need but I don't know how to get there - thanks a lot Jocelyn - I don't know whether to place a baking ban on you or forever be indebted to you...

I'm treadmilling
. There is something odd about a machine that turns me into a glorified hamster, especially since it makes me feel, feel human - like emotions - joy, peace, frustrations and release - with the sweat goes to all that I want to rid myself of and also frees what I want to be able to give to others.

I'm traveling.
No where specifically, and no where far, but I think some more time on my feet seeing this city is a good thing and who knows where else I may go... Portland? The vegan mecca and home to ol' Donald is calling - never mind Powell's books *drool.

hey lady - what are you doing the first weekend in May? Road trip?? Portland?? I love portland, totally gorgeous. And man, totally worth it.

AND/OR - you could fly to NYC and hang out with me there for three days next week, Sunday to Wednesday - my friend in Philly seems to have disappeared so I don't know what to do with my time out there now!

Either way, don't think that not blogging will make me stop putting big ideas into your head...
