For the most part, I’ve been MIA during the month of December. I wish I had a good story to tell as to why, but sadly I’ve just been totally uninspired.
True, I spent the first half of the month with my arm in a sling and unable to drive myself anywhere. That’s a usable excuse, I suppose.
And yes, we lost our internet for 3 days, which was an eye-opening experience on how pathetic we are without our devices … but that should have been only a blip in my online presence.
I did start an online photography course before the internet went out. I got far enough to learn I wasn’t holding my camera properly. Armed with that interesting little piece of information, I’ve since taken an alarming number of photos with a finger or thumb wedged in the corner of the frame. Apparently I still have a lot to learn.
And then, just as my shoulder was starting to give me some freedom and mobility again – winter arrived with an arctic blast and several dumps of snow. I was finally ABLE to get out and do things, but was UNWILLING to do so. My official excuse has been that it’s too slippery – I have a bone to mend and falling would be a bad idea right now. That’s a good and reasonable excuse, I suppose.
So this is really just a long way of saying that my uninspired month has been … well, without a decent, blog-worthy story.
Happy December. Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukkah. Happy Holidays.
These are the views of my December.
