Blog, Interrupted

Dearest Blog,

Hi. How have you been? Lonely, huh?

I’m writing to apologize for neglecting you these many months. The thought of you has haunted me like the nightmares of pregnancy.

I dreamed I put the baby down and then forgot about her for weeks and weeks and when I finally remembered to check on her she had shriveled to the size of a mouse.

It’s not you, it’s me. Despite the buckets and pails of writing I do in my professional life, your blank screen still intimidates me. And then there’s that dang Midwestern upbringing. Will I have anything to write that doesn’t sound self-aggrandizing and less than perfectly humble? How did Garrison Keillor overcome his origins? (Of course, Keillor  writes about his origins, so there’s that I suppose.)

But, in the end, I can’t quit you, blog. And so I’m back. Asking—no, begging—for your forgiveness, and recommitting to our slightly one-sided friendship.
