I’m constipated.

In a literary sense.

Not from a lack of ideas to blog about, but more because I have a veritable dearth of things to talk about and I am unable to work it out.

Has anyone some Mental Metamucil?

It is quite possible that my present predicament is more a lack of time than a lack of inspiration. Some thoughts require mental space to foment.

Love that word. Foment. It means: Agitate; try to stir up public opinion. It also means to bathe in warm water or with lotions which seems to be a bit of a weird combination of defnitions, but who am I to argue with the Princeton dictionary.

So, we either agitate with our words or take folks to the spa? Hm.

In closing, which means something since I am neither a pastor nor a politician, let me leave you wtih this.

It is not always wise to pour out your proverbial broken heart for the world to see. The world is neither kind nor sympathetic to such. If you must pour out your broken heart, do so with eloquence and proper spelling. This lends a great deal of validation to your predicament and at least makes for a less painful read.

Lest I sound remotely bitchy, let me add this.

Much of the pain I have caused myself has been as the result of over-exposing things intended to be hidden and a defiant white knuckled dependence on those things which should be exposed.

There is One who will listen and counsel regardless of the circumstance or lack of coherent presentation. Speak to Him alone first. Then ask Him what to write. And when. And where.

He’ll show you how.

    Other than once, I haven’t posted in months on my blog. Other than ‘just do it’ I have no advice.

    I’m constipated.

    That is really too much information.

    I have made a vow to myself to never say those words outloud or put them in print.

    Go read some scripture, then read the news it will be like verbal prune juice.
    Nothing gets you going like reading what God wants us to do, then examining the actual behavior of the world around us.

    Scripture will also add fiber to your mental diet, which is a good thing.

    I can’t really add much to FT’s sound advice. I do hope you & the family have a happy new year.

  • Birdie

    I’m with Wes on this one. My own creative bent doesn’t seem to extend to writing. :p However, I hope you have the happiest New Year and that G_d blesses you and yours richly in it.

    Merry Christmas, Heidi!

    Merry Christmas Heidi,

    Hope you are getting over that problem you mentioned, I’m sure it will all come out in the end.

    God Bless You and your Family

    Not to nitpick, but you just really repeated yourself here:

    So, do you have too many things to talk about or too few? 😉
