The Dog Days of August have got me down and too damned tired to post

Listening to: Mozart, Requiem in D Minor

Guilty on all counts, obviously. It's been some time since I've gone almost a week without posting, though, and I think some explanation is due.

My finger points to August, first and foremost, the wretched hot weather and everything moving apace with the growth of my sunflowers. Driving across town in this, I'm met with a general malaise of suspended animation, a torpor, zombies mindlessly milling about and going nowhere. Checking the news, I check to see if there's been a train derailment because maybe a cloud of chloroform has fallen over the city. For myself, I know I could take a month-long siesta.

Lu and Wonderful Daughter were here last week - again. I'll point you towards Lu's blog for details on the visit because, well, she says it well enough for my lazy ass. All I'll say is after the visit, I love both of them much, much more.

Finally, my creative efforts have been focused on fiction. I write everyday and these past few days has been off-blog. I'm not saying more than that (being a tad superstitious) but I've been madly adding to an idea that's been kicking around in my cranium for quite some time.

That and poetry. Reading and writing it.

So much for inane and rambling. Blame it on August.
Question of the day: Who is my regular reader from Florida?

I don't know if I'm THE regular reader from FL, but I'm in FL ;)

lu said...

Ahem... and just *who* is the recipient of all this poetry you are writing? I have got nary a limerick. Hmmmph.

It's funny...I've been too hot and tired to do any fiction writing. Check out my creative writing blog when you get a chance.

When I say that you are the poetry type, I hope you realize that is one of the supreme compliments of life.

I'm not the least bit surprised, either.

Sometimes the only way to say something properly is to use poetry.

Yeah, I'm finding it's really hard to blog with sweat dripping down my entire body, it's probably not good for the keyboard either...

So- waiting for some poetry...I still remember your lovely swan poem and thank you for it. Dog Days of August- no excuse! Passion is weather resistent and thrives on heat! Just came by to say hello and thank you for your kind friendship- as always.

I have someone from Florida too who constantly visits and doesn't say anything! Must be a Florida thing!

It's not me, I'm from NY!

Ummmm... that's the 2nd time that last commenter has commented and I am no less confused than the first time they posted.

Can anyone clue me in why a dedicated rightie (with clear enmity for us lefties) would continue coming back here to comment WITHOUT a flame?
