Patience



I am sitting at home patiently waiting for some inspiration to pass my way.

Eating powdered milk and staring vacantly out the window.

Hoping that maybe if I started writing SOMETHING down on this here blog, inspiration and cunning, witty, beautiful words would sprout forth.

..............................................

It appears not.

Ah well, maybe later.

Never mind, dearie! We are happy to hear you are fine and have nothing pressing to do, and baby is fine and all is well, AND you are thinking of us. That makes us glad. Beautiful post, thank you!

Not to worry: just enjoy the moment. Anyway, you've just posted so now you can relax and await Ms Muse to sneak up behind you. That's what I do. Not that she ever turns up for me but you might be lucky!

Word veri: horshu

which sounds like horseshoe to me, which is a lucky symbol, isn't it?

I'm in the same rut as you. I'll let you know if I find out where motivation and eloquence are lurking!

Miranda said...

Geli - thanks. There are things to do, I'm just getting really good at ignoring them!

DD - I await Ms Muse to jump out of a bush and surprise me...

Mud - Oh dear. Yes please do! I've not even been very good at commenting for goodness sakes!

I think it may just be Monday (it's making me feel awfully flat too, it is). Tuesday will bring with it loads of inspiration which will jump out at you, I'm sure of it x

Miranda said...

Thanks Shiny B, I hope so. Although this has been a two week long Monday! I'll try again tomorrow!

Words are pesky things. They'll be back. When you have no time to write them down.

Could it be all your energy and inspiration is going into growing that new little soul inside you? could you be nesting and your attention is there? we are just glad to know you are alright. hug yourself and the(doodle)babe. And the rest will take care of itself.

Janelle -oh indeed! Aint that a fact. Can't WAIT!

Spacedlaw - yes, you are soooo right!

Lori - I think thats part of the problem. I suppose having had no internet connection for 2 weeks doesn't help either - I may have been inspired somewhere in there but didn't bother to write it down! All is well have been doing lots - went to Nairobi for 20 week scans etc etc. More soon I hope!

Thank you so much for the photo. It's such a vast difference from the scenery here in northern Idaho.
While you may have been waiting for inspiration you provided it for me. In fact, often times you and your blog spark the most enjoyable mental vacations for me. Today's photo for instance - it's great fun for me to imagine what i would encounter if i were right there in that spot and i just started walking in a straight line toward those distant hills. Everything i would see would be brand new. All of the foliage, the animals and especially the insects! I am certain it would be great fun.
Thank you so much for you blog and for providing much needed diversion in a land where winter has gone on far too long.

Miranda said...

Tam - ah yeah, whatever!

Donna, thanks for your kind words. This is one of my favourite spots. Its actually where my husband proposed (and the picture taken on the day he proposed I think). Its called Lupunga Spur. I love it too! And if you walked in a straight line heading for the Chindene Hills you'd first have to cross the Luangwa River. And you would encounter many dangers on the way! Lions, elephants (just out of frame) crocs etc! But it would make it all the more fun!
