The Same Mistake

I keep making the same mistake.

Announcing to the world that I'm back to blogging, then making the decision to move right afterwards and disappearing.

In 2017, I said I was back and introduced Piglet.

Then decided to move across the country to San Francisco.

Piglet riding shotgun as we drove from NYC to SF.

It's why it took me 16 months to get back to blogging.

Settling into our new life, developing new habits, working long hours at a job (me), and playing all day at the beach (Piglet) took us 16 months to figure out.

But we did and I promised myself I'd get back to blogging.

And I announced it to the world.

And then I decided to move again (albeit just apartments this time).

After a frantic apartment search, Piglet and I changed neighborhoods and moved into a one bedroom apartment with a den and a yard for much less rent than I was paying for a small studio in a "more desirable" neighborhood. And we're much happier for it.

So really, I am back to writing, blogging, and maybe even drawing and photographing.

Now let's hope I don't decide to move again and disappear for awhile.

Sixteen Months

I can't believe it's been almost 16 months since I last posted. It definitely doesn't feel like 16 months have passed.

I've missed this.

My own space to be creative.

And perhaps a place to gush about Piglet.

I thought I'd be back here sooner, but adopting Piglet meant focusing on her for a little while.

Time management was also a skill I had to relearn.

I wonder if this is what parents of human puppies go through?

I hope to blog more, to flex my writing skills, and mayhap, to learn how to be a writer.

Hello, friends.
