Into 2018

January 3, 2018

So the last time I posted was way back in July, here I am a little under six months later.  I am sitting staring at the screen like I have countless times before wondering just what it is I want to say. I could tell you about the adventures the Giant and I took driving along Highway 101 (it was amazing, and long) how we got to wave to the Canadian border and the Mexican border in the span of about 10 days.

I could try to explain how cool it was to be in the path of totality for the Solar Eclipse (it was one of the coolest experiences of my life.) The 13+ hour car ride home, less awesome.

I wanted to write a post explaining about the awesomeness of my first whale watching trip, but the words never seemed to come out quite right. The beauty and grace of seeing the Orcas as they swam towards the ship can’t be justified with my limited photo taking abilities.

I thought about writing to you all to talk about turning 30 in September and how I was nervous, but excited to finally be moving to the “next phase” in my life, but everything I tried to say just felt silly and childish.

I wanted to share with you the rare finished object that I managed to complete along the way, a pair of socks for myself, a hat for a friend’s new baby, some sewing projects I did in secret for a different friend’s birthday.

The reality is, I didn’t hit publish on any of those stories. 2017 sucked, for a lot of reasons. It was good for a lot of reasons too (like the ones listed above.)

And so we go into 2018.

    Welcome back! Your posts were missed.

  2. Glad you are going to keep trying! A piece of advice is to mot be overly critical of yourself. Just talk to us in your voice and tell us the thing that is on your mind. We are not NY Times critics here (or I am not, anyway!) so relax! You are among friends.

    I hope 2018 is better for you than 2017 was.
