Oh yeah! That means I'm a big-time, serious blogger, right?
Well, no. In fact, I'm sure you've noticed my posts have been a little fluffy lately. I actually set them to auto-post while I was consumed with life.
I came back to Memphis on Wednesday. It was going to be a visit, but it turned into for real. I'm back at my old job, which I love. It feels wonderful to be in a city I know, a city where I can drive without a GPS, where I have places to go and people to see.
Virginia wasn't bad, exactly. Then again, I'm saying that from far away - physically and mentally. That year seems like an eternity ago. That year seems like it lasted three years.

I'm more than eager, ready, and willing to dive headfirst back into writing. Sentences flood into my head, fully formed, and I scribble them in the margins of paperwork, on napkins and receipts, text them to myself. It's the most exhilarating feeling, and I'm glad to welcome it back.
Hopefully this blog, with the address change and the seriousness that implies, will get back to writing, as it was when I started. And if that scares off readers, so be it. I'll still post photos and random things. I'll still be funny (I hope). I'll just be more focused, because that is what I need.
