Is there a "hit the wall" point with blogging? Does there come a time when you just can't think of a thing to say? Or at least anything that might be even remotely interesting to people? There was a time when I doubted it. I thought I would never run out of things to talk about.
I've noticed some of my favorite bloggers have been using the term blogger blahs lately. So I figure I can't be the only one experiencing this phenomenon of running out of material. But I wonder what is going on now that this bug seems to be spreading?
I have to say, this island is only 5 miles long by 1/2 mile wide. I am amazed that I have found so many things to talk about and show you over the past few years. There is, after all, limited resources and stories available to me. Unless I want to start publishing all the rumors one hears every day. And I am not about to start doing that. But there are always some things going on to mention. Like....
Today's daily ragsheet, Por Esto, is reporting that the local police stole personal items from Renee Waltheter's apartment while they had it cordoned off from the public. This is the poor woman who was brutally murdered here recently. If that is true, that they took her laptop, iPod and other personal items for their own use, then I'm not sure this is a place I really want to live. It is so despicable, so criminal, so I don't know what on their part. It offends me to no end to think that the very people who are supposed to be protecting us are robbing us. This is not the first time I have heard such an accusation. This is the first time I have seen it in print though.
The street light on our corner was turned off last May. I understand why and approve of the reason why. May to July is when the turtles come ashore to lay their eggs, including on the beach right across the street from me. They hate lights so it is a good thing to turn off the street lights to encourage them to come ashore. However, egg laying season is waaaaaay over now. We went to public works to ask them to turn it back on now. They told us no. The Director of Egg Laying and Bullcrap, or some such title, has not given them permission to turn the lights back on. She says that it is still possible that turtles will come ashore and lay some eggs. I think somebody better send her back to turtle reproductive school for a refresher course. This particular corner is very busy and very dark. It is dangerous to have no light there. Especially since many kids pass through here on their way home from school. I guess better a dead kid than a rotten egg.
So I guess I'm only suffering from a gentle case of blogger blahs!
