With great reluctance I sit at the keyboard to pen this post. It’s not that I don’t enjoy writing, I do; I love it. But something has gotten in the way; blocking the creative juices and keeping me from doing the very thing that makes abnormal me feel normal.
What’s clogging the creativity conduit keeping all the weirdness locked inside? It’s the keyboard, the computer, the whole internet thing. And WordPress, Goddess bless their wretched souls, tweaking this and that as if it weren’t tedious enough to upload posts.
So with or without your permission, here’s my remedy. My New Year’s resolution is to write 52 letters to 52 people in 52 weeks. I’ll use real ink and real paper, and a real dictionary for spill chicking. What a concept. I’ll use real saliva to seal the envelopes and even though we haven’t needed to since the 80’s, I think I’ll lick the stamps too. My audience will number one a week; family member, friend, bill collector, whoever.
So what will happen to The Velo Hobo? I’ll post pictures of the wonderful travelers who take refuge in our home and maybe a few bike related photos of my own. With no real pressure to be clever and witty, maybe I’ll post more. Maybe not.
Thanks for putting up with me, and as always, thanks for reading The Velo Hobo.
