I’ll be back.

Up earlier than normal for a weekend, I heard K pull out of our driveway on his way to a cricket match. The clock showed 7:45 AM. I lit the lamps, made myself a cup of tea and sat on the couch with my phone to call Amma. Phone call done, I looked around. The mound of vessels in the sink looked tiring. I knew I had laundry to be done and folded and food to be made as well. It was tempting to just let it be and sink back in the recliner with my laptop for company.

Shrugging off the impulse I slid in the CD with Lalitha Sahasranamam and murmuring along the voice from the player did the dishes, cleaned the stove, made myself a toast and sat with the laptop to write something. Anything. You see, this week has me literally at a loss for words. I could blame work or the fact that I had guests at home and functions to attend. The truth is I am out of things to write about. How much longer do I post about me, me and me?

I initially titled this post “A temporary slump?” Reading it aloud made me fear for what if it is not “temporary”? The minute I felt the fear I knew I loved doing this. So, here I am sitting looking at my monitor for inspiration and nothing is happening. So, I will let it be for a while. Like UL says – blogging without obligation. That is what I am going to do. So, if you are not seeing the blog updated with the frequency it was before, bear with me.

I will be back I promise.

PS: If you want to help, please send me a note using the contact form giving me tips on what to write about. I will be forever grateful!

  1. I know you will be πŸ™‚ and we, the readers are patient:) – I know you will bounce back and com up with exciting interesting things to talk about!

    … until then, take it easy and enjoy the time…

    we, your readers, will wait!

    … will try to see if I can come up with topic suggestions;)

  2. Why do you have to have the compulsion to write everyday?? I do love reading your entries and do ask you when the next one is…but then you should not be forcing yourself to do anything! Bold when the thought comes up…more than once a day or just once a week…whatever. Don’t think it is a slump. Take it easy gal! πŸ˜€

  3. @JS: Waiting for you suggestions πŸ™‚ Thank you for the vote of confidence
    @Apar: The compulsion is self imposed. Its my challenge to myself to see if I can come up with 200 – 300 words each day without boring myself to death. I agree, its time to just post when i have stuff to write rather than forcing myself to.

  4. happens to all of us…take ur time and come back when you are motivated and ready…but i will chk this page regularly for updates πŸ™‚

  5. No Laksh, I don’t think it would be compelling yourself to write, It is your nature and you have an amazing capability of making “goodness of small things” (thats how I nick-named your blog). I’d wish to see your posts daily which evoke a lot of emotions not only in me but also in all your blogmates, visitors.

  6. Laksh, I think en kann dhaan pattuduchu. In one of your previous post I had mentioned how you are able to write so well.

    I completely agree with Deepa’s nick name, goodness of small things. So come back with a lot of stuff. We’ll be waiting for you…

  7. Hi Laksh, I came to know about your blog thro’ the link in A-Kay’s site(I am her SIS-in-law). I typically don’t read any blogs, but made it a point to check A-Kay’s. Now I do check your site regularly as well. You write so well. No pressure, but do keep up the good work πŸ™‚

  8. @Rajitha: Thank you! Hopefully not for long. I feel energized already
    @Deepa: Thank you! That felt good to my ears. Will come back for sure.
    @Madhu: Apdi ellam illai. All’s well now. I think I was overwhelmed by a lot of stuff happening at work. Though its no excuse.
    @SK: Welcome!!! Abs thrilled to hear from you. Thanks for the pep talk πŸ™‚
    @Apar: Will check it out.

  9. Actually I havent been back here in a long long time, nor to any other blogs, I am just wasting away when it comes to blogging…I seem to have so much to write but just not enough time….and there are so many more things in life to take care of that I havent had the energy to do this as well. Can you believe that I have still been writing but just havent had the mind to post many of them…it’s just sitting as a draft or in a space somewhere in the hard disk…so those two hundred to three hundred I hope you will continue to write even if you dont publish it as it is a good writing exercise…that’s the way i look at it. πŸ™‚
