I'm sorry

Okay, I think it’s time to break the silence. I owe an apology to all my blogger friends for going dumb without notice. I don’t know what triggered it, but I guess my second trip did it, or my plants giving up on me, or my camera giving up on me… I don’t know, which but something did and I suddenly lost the thing to blog. I guess that’s a Gemini thing, may be? I don’t know. The same happened to my writing. Yes, for those who don’t know, I’m a yet-to-become-fiction-writer. Of course, I completed only one novel and my failed attempts to get it published for almost a year and me getting my first job in another state than my home and many other factors stopped my writing and it shocks me that I no more write. The second novel is sleeping somewhere in a forgotten folder in my harddisk, waiting to be opened again and continued – god knows when that day would come.

Today, suddenly, that thought came to me – Am I gonna stop blogging like writing (of course I’ll resume writing fiction may be 5 or 6 years down the line)? That was a scary thought and only then did I realize that I even stopped visiting other friends’ blogs! Of course, I didn’t stop gardening – which I’m sure I wouldn’t, but the thing to write posts was suddenly forgotten, despite few people’s questions as to whether I’d come back. I know that was so mean of me, but again, all I can say is, “I’m sorry, very sorry for going uninformed.” Well, I’m back now and I hope this post makes me start the seed sowing mania again.

Okay, this summer wasn’t as exciting as last year, mainly because my plants were dying on me. Spider mites almost killed them and organic means couldn’t stop them. I finally had to resort to the chemicals. I can hear some of you gasp but hey, I wanted to save my babies and couldn’t watch them fight in vain and so I did it.

After what seemed like an eon, they gave out sprouts and now are doing well [touchwood]. As I said, my camera suddenly went black two weeks ago and is yet to go see a doc. I hope my cammie would be fine by next week. Until then, I’m gonna get myself busy sowing. I’m back again and see you all at your blogs. Ciao!
