This isn’t the first time I’ve taken a break from writing my blog… but it definitely feels more significant.
I don’t want to say I’m exhausted: I’m still finding rabbit holes that I want to jump down every day. But when it comes to the moment of actually taking that dive, of writing something or taking a photograph or both, I find that I just don’t have it in me.
The truth is my life has changed a lot in the last six months. I found out that things I once took for idle challenges were actually serious problems that I failed to recognise; things that I can’t really talk to anyone about, and that I have since had to commit every waking moment towards somehow addressing.
That’s why I’m so exhausted.
I’m only just learning that it’s going to take a long time. Deep down inside, I get the feeling these problems may never go away. I’m fine with that. Spending a few minutes a day on a daily photographic blog just seems grossly indulgent.
Besides, I’ve been doing it for eight years.
I don’t even know who reads this nonsense.
Anyway, I thought I might write something once every one or two weeks; martial arts… multiculturalism… photography… I don’t know. I just need to find a way to do it that makes sense to me.
Until then, thanks for indulging me.
