So I had an unusually busy week last week, which I why I haven’t posted since last Tuesday. There was some travel involved, which I’ve usually overcome, and gotten my posts out through pre-planning.
Quite honestly, I’ve lost some of the fire for every day posting. I’m not burnt out, and I still love photography, but I haven’t the appetite to put this nearly on a par with work and family, which is about what it takes to make sure you never miss a day. The truth is I could have posted last week, but when Tuesday evening became Tuesday night and I was ready for bed, I had a choice of staying up longer to get 2 or 3 posts lined up ahead of time, or just go to bed and let the blog lag a few days. There was a time I would have stayed up, but that’s getting harder. Not physically harder – it’s just a bit of a slog.
Part of it is I have other things going on, including a new commitment to exercise that takes up a good hour every day. Something has to give. I’m not anywhere near quitting this, but on occasion I might just let the blog sit a few days without warning like I did last week.
Meanwhile, the Grey Man never rests, he always seems to keep moving, even when construction blocks his way.
