it has been just over five years – okay, 5 years, 3 months, and 10 days – since I last posted an entry here. I know some of you might be thinking, “Hey, Middle-Aged Head, why have you been away so long? Whatcha been up to?” It would be a gross understatement to say that not much has happened in that time. A lot has happened; some good, some bad, and some of it earth shattering. A few more grey hairs, a few unwanted pounds. Okay, alot of unwanted pounds. .I will provide details, but it later posts. I’m just putting my toe back in the water and getting back into writing.
I’ve decided to begin writing again because I have so much stuff that’s collected in this middle-aged head, all the emotional crap that needed to come out. I’ve become skilled at compartmentalizing. I learned to move some emotions aside to deal with more complex shit. It comes with watching someone you love die. You see, I spent most of 2017 watching my girlfriend die from ovarian cancer. That was the worst year of my life, including the year prior to my divorce ten years ago. As crappy as that year was, it never came close to the past 12 months.
That teaser will have to do until I can gather my thoughts and put words on a page.
