The Backson Post

Gon Out. Backson. Bisy Backson.

I have happily spent the past long weekend doing social things with lots of different friends. I have managed to connect with people for many hours at a time every day since Friday. As such, I’m feeling pretty good but have consequently had little time to compose any new posts. And despite having ideas, the drive has been muted somehow due to full on exhaustion. You see, I’ve been spending time writing and researching when I should be sleeping. I’ve been doing this for months now because it’s the only time I’ve really had available to me without the three-ring circus soundtrack of my beautiful boys bickering, brawling, and begging for this or that. So it appears I’ve hit a bit of a wall with the sleep debt, which means that posts here will be a little less frequent than the every 3-4 days I was managing for awhile. I will be back when I’m able to make some writing time for myself.

In the meantime, I’ve been listening to Caroline Myss’s Energy Anatomy cd series and have been reading her Anatomy of the Spirit. Completely right up my alley. Will be finishing up my level one reiki certification this weekend with the fantastic Paul Lara at QiBelly. I’m totally digging this energy thing. It’s like we’re made of it or something. 😉

Time for sleep.

public persona vs private

I have a confession to make: I’ve been purposefully holding back from posting here. This is the first blog I’ve had where my actual real name is attached to my writing. Prior to this, I’ve always written under a pseudonym and that means freedom of expression to this quasi-introvert.

I think I just need to disabuse myself of the notion that I’m less accountable if my legal name isn’t attached and that I need also to be absolutely flawless if my legal name is attached.

I still need to spend some time mentally navigating the terrain of how public or reticent I feel comfortable being. It’s a tricky path. …and I think the best way for me to figure things out is to DO rather than THINK because I’ve already been doing a lot of thinking about this and that hasn’t really created more posts.

Anyhow, that’s where I’ve been.
