Have you ever felt flat? Like a bottle of pop, or soda, or mineral, or however you say it, that's been left out too long without the cap screwed on tightly?
That' pretty much how I've felt lately...tired, boring, no fizz. More worried about just getting through the day, than how I did it. Existing, yes; living, no.
The funny thing about a blog is that the readers only knows what is going on if the author tells them. It's easy to think a blogger's life is all rainbows and lollipops, or that they are just lazy and not writing, when really, neither one is probably the reality.
There's been a lot going on here in Ghana for quite a long stretch now. I've written about a million, okay, maybe a thousand posts in my head, but was never quite sure how to put it all, or finish it off, or even make it interesting to read. So I haven't been writing. There are days I've felt I'd explode if I didn't write it all out, but at the end of the day, I've just swallowed it down and gone on. And that swallowing it down over and over again has left me feeling like the old soda that's been left on the counter overnight. Flat.
Does anyone like to drink a flat Coke? Not me. So I'm writing again. It may be boring, it may be mundane, but it's my life. This is the only one I've got, so I might as well live it....with the fizz!
