Well, as our wet summer nearly wraps itself up, I can finally get back into the blogging swing of things. My absence in blogging over the summer was not planned, in fact it was a complete accident. My poor laptop took a nap in a few centimeters of water and never regained consciousness. My amazing partner was able to save all my data, and pictures but unfortunately I needed a new place to retrieve them from. So with the wait time settling into a new laptop and the general busyness of the summer weeks I decided to just take the whole damn thing off.
I am incredibly grateful that my summer months were so action packed because I just don’t get the same satisfaction anymore in putting pen to paper as I do typing out my thoughts. I enjoy handwriting poetry in a beautiful notebook. It brings me such tranquility, but a part of me only feels safe having them around my house because very few people could actually read my cursive. And I am so slow handwriting these days. The reality is I have found such comfort in the efficiency of typing, being able to actually have my fingers keep up with my random thoughts, that I find writing things down to be cumbersome and frustrating. There is an art form to keeping journals, but my writing has evolved into a need more than a want. I need the escape of my words. I need the freedom to type out my thoughts and unburden my mind from the rampant thoughts that periodically keep me up at night.
And thus, I am back writing, blogging and enjoying the technology that makes it all possible. So stay tuned while I get back to questioning my relationship norms and sharing the stories that have kept many of you coming back so many times over the last 5 years! And as I missed celebrating with you all the milestone of 5 years of blogging, here is the link to my very firstpost! Thank you all for sticking with me on my journey through open relationships and breaking free of societal norms.
