Thinker's Block

It's been several weeks since my last blog post. One could suspect I've been having writer's block. But that would be far from the truth. I've really wanted to write, felt an urge to write, but I haven't had much to write about. Now, while writing this, I realize how unfair I am to all the people, events and happenings I've experienced over the past weeks, such as running a half-marathon, being in Sweden (with great friends from the US), having surgery, being in awe of my best friends physical achievements, running a crazy night race, baby-shower, house-warming and birthday celebrations. All (and more) of the above deserved attention and could have been written in lengths about. So what has stopped me? I think I've been having thinker's block.

If writing is putting thoughts on paper, an essential part of writing is thinking. If almost every thought is fleeting, nonsensical and lack any kind of depth it is difficult to motivate spending time on writing about it. At least writing anything that would result in a blog-post. Perhaps if I only wanted to write a SMS/IM...

I realize what I've written this far is the direct opposite of profound. And I hope you're not waiting for it to grow into something meaningful. It won't. I think this is just a very long way to say: "Under construction. Please check back soon"

And please do check back soon. My thoughts might have taken a leave of absence after a very intense and stressful spring, but eventually they will return, batteries charged and ready to go.
