Dear, patient Reader. I have been away. I have missed you. Missed this space. I am returning.
I am newly inspired to do so, and I will explain why in a bit, but first, my absence needs an explanation, I think.
The short of it is: About a year ago, I had a baby. My first. A beautiful, scintillating son.
If you are not a parent, you have no way of preparing for how consuming, how incredibly demanding and enrapturing parenthood is. I had no plan in place for the blog, for me. I knew I'd have my baby and see how things went.
That was OK as far as it lasted. I'm glad I didn't place undue pressure on myself as I was adjusting to parenthood. Now I realize that I learned something out of that immersion-without-plan, and so I am recommitting myself to do something for myself. Largely, that will be this blog.
Parenting will probably inform it, as it is the most thrilling, amazing, vulnerable and ineffable experience to be had, from my perspective. But this will not turn into a mommy blog. (I have a private mommy blog for that purpose, thank you very much.) (And not that there's anything wrong with mommy blogs! I love them, too!)
But here is where I explore the ideas and thoughts and big, adult things that help me be a more conscious person (and in turn, a better mommy).
I hope you will return with me, and join me on this reinvigorated journey toward bliss. I think big things are in store, and you won't be disappointed.
Loka Samastha Sukino Bhavantu. (May all beings be happy and free of suffering.)
