writer's block? more like writer not sitting down at the computer enough!

I realize my posts go through phases. Lately that phase is: I would rather be doing other things then sitting at the computer. Then it happens, I sit down and just start writing and it feels oh so good! I do not know why; I am not a writer by trade nor a writer at heart, but I like expressing and connecting with people in various forums (including online).

What have I been doing with my time not spent on the computer? Keeping very, very busy. Between work, my daily yoga practice, three days a week of Thai kickboxing, spending time with Groovy and Sherman, and visiting family and friends, I barely have time to sit in this wooden chair.

This is a good thing! I have been living life. Perhaps it's time to carve out a moment each day to writer about life?

The updates:

Kickboxing is kicking my butt into shape rapidly.

Eating is getting healthier and healthier.

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge is at day 321.

I have reconfirmed the fact that I am week at event planning.

I have also reconfirmed that my least favorite chore is hand washing the dishes.

I finally found a new pair of eyeglass frames and am seriously thinking about going back for the second pair that I dig.

Sherman is going through a serious shedding phase.

I need to repair or replace a slow leaking tire on my car.

I stand taller than I used to.

I am a true athlete again. (I have missed you, Athletic Melissa of Yesteryear! Welcome back.)

I have embraced my beauty again. (Another serious "welcome back.")

I visited PS1 (MoMA) in Queens with Groovy and a friend visiting from Wisconsin. Great space!

I took a personal day last Friday and ventured into the City with my father to go to the Photo Expo at the Javits Center, with a stop off at B&H. All I can say is "Holy Crap!" Great day.

I stand taller than I used to.

Last but not least, I got myself to sit down and write this post! See you soon!

I find that writing is certainly easier a some times than others...that sometimes I sit down and inspired words just seem to flow out of my fingertips, with little conscious effort, while, other times, I work like crazy to bang out stuff that's utterly lifeless. What I think it comes down to is that I always have something to say, but, in the latter times, what I really have to say are things I don't want to think about, that I'm repressing. So, what I do allow out isn't coming from anywhere deep. So, the cure for writer's block, I think, is to truly let it all loose...
