Brushing off the Dust...

It has literally been years. I know.
Like as in - since 2013 - years.

I've been busy.

Until I happened to get an old blog post reminder on Facebook, which led me back to my abandoned and dilapidated blog (if it were an actual building it would probably be filled with webs and critters and ooze with a smell of musty dampness... Luckily, that's not the case). No, it's just been parked in blogosphere purgatory waiting patiently for my impending return.

And then it happened. I returned. I took a look around, riffled through posts, read a few things here and there, checked in on other blogs, cleaned up some broken links; and, like that, before I even fully blew off the dust and whipped open the virtual curtains to let the fresh air in,  I published an old draft post. No, not this one.

And this post?
Well it was also a draft I had started more than a couple years ago with a name and one sentence, I'm sure there were some additional thoughts in mind. albeit long since gone. As all it said was:

"I have a slue of blog drafts" 
And it's true. I do.

Most of which are empty pages, started with intent but never fully formed to fruition. It's time to go in and clean those up, delete them. Make room for something new.  Lucky for me, my list of blog posts don't look near as stuffed as my filing cabinet, so it's easy to clean up and "make room'.

However, for me, I think it's about making room in my head more than anything...  Returning here to where I documented the process of birthing my creative soul 10 years ago which eventually morphed into a business, something I had never imagined for myself - ever. .

Starting a business has been rewarding and stressful, there have been life changes, growth and deep  self dicoveries; and through all of it, over time...a waning of creative spirit. 
Burn Out.

So what does one do?

That is as best one can in the middle of a swift, ever-changing, perpetually moving tide.

I'm hitting the resest button.
This is my call to action for myself. The setting of my intention.
To write once again, to release, to reconnect, to create...
To once again marry words and pictures. 

So here's to dusting off the blog and seeing what comes of it.

Game On!
