we interrupt this blog to bring you the summer holidays
Like any creative endeavour, writing seems to me to be an activity best suited to the introspective winter months. It seems harder to find the necessary stillness and focus on sunny days and long light evenings. If I have struggled a bit recently, however, it is as nothing to the distractions that are about to burst upon me. For the school year ends at noon on Friday – TODAY! – and, from this afternoon until the end of the first week of September, I am going to be in full mummy/ hostess mode for our boys and the many visitors who come and go over the summer.
So the mystery is, how does any mother find the time to think, let alone write, in the middle of the summer holidays? The solution escapes me, but I intend to address it diligently over the next two months. If I publish a post, you’ll know I’m making progress.
Please forgive me, therefore, if Dancing Beastie is a little erratic in the immediate future. We have lots of happy plans, some of them involving travel, some of them closer to home. I would like to find time to write about the more interesting ones, and I hope that you, too, have happy days on the horizon.
