It’s a grasshopper..because I didn’t have a photo I’d taken of crickets.
Yes, it has been quiet here. Sometimes the freelance juggle is a bit more jiggly than others times. This is one of those times. I love that I have a career that’s multi-hyphenated. The downside is that sometimes something’s gotta give. For the moment, it’s been this site. A site that needs a virtual Swiffer to wipe away the dust it’s collecting.
We talk about finding balance in life, but really, more than anything, I think it’s about learning to trip and make an fool of myself and laugh and just keep carrying on. That said, I am falling, with some attempt at grace, as a blogger. But the other stuff I do gets 100% of my attention right now, so the trade-off isn’t really so bad. The pendulum will swing soon. Because, as you know, freelancing is always feast or famine. xo a.
