My ability to write seems to have dried up. I just can’t find the mental space for it somehow. Perhaps it’s that trying to figure out a new routine is taking up all my resources. I’m finding time to read, but writing, not so much. Which is sad, but what can you do. I’ll just keep posting pictures here until one day something will demand to be written and when it does, I’ll write it. I don’t believe in trying to force things, writing just for the sake of words filling up pages, meeting some kind of goal for a supposed audience. It seems like there should be much to say but when the kids are finally in bed and I’m sitting at this keyboard I want to watch a show or read some blogs and articles, catch up on a bit of what I missed on Facebook during the day. Writing, well the blank pages just sort of wipes away everything I might have thought about saying. Suddenly I have nothing to say. So here are some photos I’ve taken recently, a few short videos.

I found a cutout of my favorite UD English professor, Dr. Louise Cowan, inside the girls’ homemade dollhouse. They must have cut her out of an alumni magazine to use as a paper doll. I cracked up because it reminded me of an undergrad prank some students pulled one year when they stole her portrait and took it on spring break, snapping photos at scenic locations.
