I just spent the last two hours writing a great post and I lost it in cyberspace….I have tried everything to find it but like my youth, it’s gone forever.  And it was so dang good.   Pride goeth before the fall.  So do I try to write it again?  I’m kinda like a one-hit-wonder.  Maybe I should just go off and lick my wounds (or eat some ice cream or do some online shopping..that always makes me feel better….for a few minutes) or should I just suck it up and start again?  It’s not like I don’t have the time.  I have nothing pressing to do (ok, there is laundry, ironing, vacuuming, dusting, orgainizing my studio) but nothing that I haven’t let go before.  It’s just that I spend so much energy writing that when I am done with a post, I’m usually spent.   Writing for me is like sneezing…..I build up steam, write, and then have a proverbial cigarette basking in the afterglow of the moment.   So with that said, I think I will go and eat something, maybe do some domestic chores and then think about writing again later today.

Why is it , that the really good ones get away?


About thelumberjackandthegypsy

The lumberjack is my husband and he owns Arrowhead Wood Products; Arrowhead Toboggan and Snowshoe; and Lake Superior Furniture Co. and is the exclusive manufacturer of wood shutters for Summit Hill Shutter Co. The gypsy is me, and I have a passion for teaching people to tap into their creative side, even when they think they don't have one! I did not grow up creative or artsy and I was in my thirties before I started sewing and creating things. I am a rug hooker; artisan teddy bear maker; painter (from pictures to large pieces of furniture!); knitter; doll maker; needle-felter, repurposer; sewer; decorator; blogger; glamper; reader; vintage jewelry maker; junker; and now a shop owner. But the lumberjack and I feel our greatest gifts in this world are our four grandkids and our daughter and her husband and our relationship with Jesus Christ. We have been married for more than 33 years and most of that time we have lived out in the country on a hobby farm where we have raised chickens, turkeys, ducks, goats, pigs and beef cattle. We also homeschooled our only child for her entire school years. We lived out our dream of being like the The Little House on the Prairie and they were great times. I also have a personal blog: rantingsofamadqueen.wordpress.com where I tell stories of what life on the farm has been like and other things that pop up in my very weird mind. I prefer "quirky or eccentric" instead of weird (sounds more fascinating and less creepy)!

  1. I think there is something to loosing things to cyberspace…conspiracy theory…..makes me curious to what you wrote about…;)

  2. It seems when I have spent a very long time putting words on paper that when they disappear into cyberspace I look at it a couple of ways: 1) it wasn’t meant to be written or read, 2) that the 2nd time will never be as good as the first – after all the first just rolled out of me – the next one = pure torture!!’n
