Letter to Knight Ramblings

Dear Blog,

I'm sorry for neglecting you. I realize you require a lot of attention and upkeep but I'm just not good at that sort of thing. This is exactly why I should never be a parent or even a pet owner. The thing is, I really have gone crazy. I wasn't kidding. I want my life to be different and it just isn't making any changes yet. It's not as if I'm trying to ignore you because I'm not. I'm just overwhelmed at the moment. You see, work eats my soul. That means it's mostly missing except for that little hopeful part I'm hiding inside that so badly wants the change. Since I'm hiding that last bit of soul it makes it very difficult to write. I promise to make it up to you later. I've also been spending a lot of time trying to help out Casey the last few days. He went into surgery Monday morning to have his evil back repaired. He couldn't walk more then a few feet until yesterday when he made it a full six blocks without trouble. Thankfully it looks like the surgery worked and things will start getting better. I'm so happy he is okay.

I probably won't be back again for a little while but don't worry, I could never stay away for too long.

I think most of us understand about the work eating your soul thing. When you're under pressure and unhappy, it's hard to be creative. Don't worry, we will all still be around when you feel like writing again - that is the joy of google reader. The minute you post - we will know.

I'm glad to hear that Casey seems to be on the mend. And I hope you can figure out some way around this job thing. Just because you are good at something doesn't mean you enjoy doing it. I hope you can find whatever it is that will make you happy.

Hold onto your dreams!* We will be waiting for you, whenever you can post.
And I'm glad to hear that Casey is recovering.

*Ever hear that song, Hold On, by Triumph? (A lesser-known band out of Toronto, somewhat popular in the US in the 1980's, at least in my crowd!) Here are a few of the lyrics:

"The daily routine takes your soul,
Lost without a trace
It hold you down and turns you 'round
And puts you in your place
Another day, another dollar
Another pretty face
Another chance to lose yourself
In the endless race

Hold on, hold on to your dreams
Hold on, even though it seems
Everyone around you has their little schemes
Listen to your heart and hold on to your dreams"

Glad the surgery was successful and Casey is doing better.

I will continue to stalk you whether you are posting here regularly or not. ;-)

Hey lovah!!!! I am really glad that your blog friends are so cool. I think it would be cool to have some sort of meet and greet with all of them at some divey bar in the middle of nowhere. People would just arrive with name tags and an awesome time would be had by all.

Oh good, you're not dead.

Dana said...

Wow! You have a full plate these days, don't you?! Glad to hear that Casey is on the mend. Don't let your soul get too malnourished, OK??

Hey. I should have stayed at brunch to talk to you more.

I totally understand, for what it is worth.

Glad to hear TLJ is on the mend.

I thought about you yesterday, last night, and this morning! Been wondering how things were since you hadn't been around.

Thanks for the update and the check in. We need that, just every now and then.

Glad the beaux is doing better; and, follow those dreams. You can make it work -- though, easier said than done.

Good Luck, Gal!

Hang in there! And a huge thank you for being the wonderful person you are and taking such amazing care of my big brother. It will happen for you, I can feel it.

Shit like this is why I avoid work.

Too much of a hassle.

Thanks for updating. Glad to hear that Casey's getting better.

You never know who your real stalkers are until you're gone for a little while.


Reb said...

Oh, Knight, I know that things will get better for your soul, keep feeding it little shows and the big ones will come along.

Glad Casey's surgery went well and he is doing better.

I understand, girl. Be free! Now is the time to pursue happiness. We'll be here when you get settled again.
