Being Boswell

Audience Participation Week

Maybe you noticed, I hope you did…a post did not arrive in your mailbox or on Off the Couch yesterday-my regular posting Monday morning. That is because I have nothing to say…I am blank…the well is dry…I’ve run out of steam…

Maybe it’s writers block, maybe it was the holiday weekend with the Tom and the kids, maybe it was trying to put a freshly painted bedroom back together (it is never just a new paint job, now it needs new bedside lamps, new window treatments, a new mirror for over my dresser, a new soft chair, a pretty ceiling fan and, now I am pushing my luck, new carpet), who knows what the matter is, but I have nothing. Radio silence.

So I have a favor to ask. You take a turn. Write what is important to you. What matters. What makes you laugh. Who you love and why. Don’t be shy, mine is a kind, thoughtful audience that is supportive and appreciative. We will support your thoughts. Let’s have a conversational week where we write and comment to one another.

I have been LOVING the posts on the I Love My Life column, thank you to those that have shared – Heidi, Jena, Mary, Kim, Ruth, Paula. Please keep ’em coming.

So take a turn and send in your post. Email it to me at pboswell25@verizon.net

“I’m failing miserably,” I confessed. “I wrote my 10 self centered resolutions in It’s All About Me last week. Since then, unfortunately, I have been more efficient than ever. I am caring about everything to the point of mild paranoia and I am talking to fill all silences. It’s like when I say I am going on a diet and then I eat more than I usually do.” Continue Reading
