I started a handful of blog posts to publish today.
Let’s see, there was the rant about Lisa LaFlamme’s treatment and rampant misogyny in broadcasting. Also, the one about a study on secrets. And a few other ideas that didn’t seem to gel. On a different day, they might. Today, I’m just not feeling it.
A paid columnist could never get away with writing about how they have nothing to write about. But this is just a little piece of real estate on the Internet that I rent to muse and vent on. It’s not that I have no ideas. I have too many ideas! And they’re all fighting for attention in my mind. One hasn’t emerged as the winner.
Maybe I need a holiday.
So, tomorrow I’m flying out to BC to spend some quality time with the best people I know, Erin Davis and her family. Last year Erin and I took a road trip. The country was still in full mask mode but I ventured out during a brief time when flying was deemed “okay”. My flights home were canceled so – oh, poor me! – I had to stay a couple of extra days in paradise!
This year, Pearson International is making headlines for delays, cancelations, and problems but you know what? I’m expecting a smooth journey there and back. I’m going to assume the best and grin and bear it if things go awry. Flying is my choice. I’ll handle whatever comes: lost luggage, cancellations, whatever will be.
This year, our plans are to sit at the ocean’s edge and do a whole lot of nothing but catching up and enjoying ourselves. Erin and Rob are family, full stop. I’m so grateful that I get to spend these chunks of time with them and feel free to just be crazy ol’ me.
So, please forgive me for the lack of a proper blog post today. I’ll fill my tank and return with lots to say, I’m sure. See you in September!
