This is my new life.
Or, rather, this is the exact same life I’ve been living, just with a new set of particulars.
For the past several years I owned and ran the website in the cactus garden, but a shift in interests, priorities, and all that other nonsense have led me to here. This new space where I really don’t know what to do with myself. More on that in a minute.
I have turned over ownership of in the cactus garden to AM the Elder and given my blessing for her to do with it as she pleases. Or doesn’t please. Or just kinda feels like at any given time. We’ve left the door open for me to return as an occasional writer, but I have handed over the veritable keys to the kingdom, including the spare hidden under the fake rock.
It’s okay. This isn’t a sad thing. It’s a natural progression. Or whatever.
But back to not knowing what to do.
Due to some health conundrums, I’m on a temporary work leave of absence and I don’t know what to do with all this time I suddenly have to waste. I’m bored. I was bored from day one, and I’m still bored. I can only unnecessarily repaint so many coffee tables in my house before my roommate hides all the brushes and mineral spirits. And I’ve run out of cooking competition shows to watch while I refurbish. I’m not even a month in to this nonsense.
So, let’s see if I can write myself out of this ennui or if I just slowly go insane.
Either way, it should be entertaining.
