I'm Out of Touch, Not Out of Time

(Yes, that title is a reference to Hall & Oates. Let's call it a remix reference since I changed their words a bit.)

I've been so out of touch lately and I need to apologize to my longtime loyal readers... I don't know what's wrong with me lately but I just haven't felt like myself. The days are slipping by far too quickly again, and I haven't felt like writing much. I should have plenty to write about, but I feel exhausted and somewhat depressed under the surface. It's not something overwhelming that permeates everything with sadness. I guess it's just that realization as I approach my 28th birthday that I have wasted a lot of time and a lot of life.

I know it's in my hands to change that now, and that complaining about time wasted only wastes more time. But I am truly remorseful for the slaughtering of years. I am not an ungrateful person. I know what I have been given and I should never have taken any of it for granted.

I'm worn out. I need healing and rest and I don't see that coming anytime soon. I'm going to have to just take off when I need to write. Just jump in the car and find some secluded spot to write the lyrics that can heal me. Nobody's going to hand me health and happiness. I have to grab it for myself.

I should never have been superstitious about our 13th anniversary
