I'm looking for my Muse

Hi. Remember me? I'm the terribly inconsistent blogger who has seemingly abandoned the love of eating, drinking and being merry, clammed up, disappeared, packed up, shipped out. But no! I haven't really. I don't know what has happened to my Muse, but she/he/it has been, well, missing. Perhaps it's been drowned by the worries of life; bills, kids, changes, loves, joys, other writing projects, angst, spiritual quest and renewal, extreme yoga, busy with the real job, yadda yadda yadda....

 I don't even know if there is anyone out there anymore who is waiting for me to Swig and Grind and share it. I have, however gotten several messages etc... over the last few months, basically asking "wtf??!, if I see that damned picture of the pasta machine one more time....." Well, I'm sorry. I've been missing the blogosphere, I really have. I have eaten great food. I've discovered great wine. I've shaken up whacky cocktails, and even photographed the whole dang process. But when I sit down to write, I'm pulled in a thousand different directions.

So here I am today, basically confessing my writing iniquities, and writing about my lack of writing. Touche Renee. It's a start. I decided not even to post a picture, because I needed to just WRITE! Argghhhhh!!!!!

So all of this to say. I shall repent and return to my debaucherous ways and if there's any readers still out there after my long sabbatical, than we shall resume our adventures together. Anyone? Anyone???.......   


  1. Hi H,
    I have found it to be a strange time on the blogosphere. A lot of people who I found as I began blogging have drifted off in other directions, and I get more readership these days by linking my blog to facebook. But there are still a good few.... and who knows what will happen next! I hope to see your next posts as your blogging mojo returns! Cheers!

  2. I'm in - keep writing. And post pics. And cocktail recipes.

  3. I LOVE everything you write! Keep it coming. I don't even mind how few and far between your posts are because I know they will eventually show up like the sunrise with all its beauty - your blog that is!! LOVE IT!!

  4. Yay! You are still out there!

    Joy: Thanks so much! It's great to see you back here in the comment section! You are such a great follower!

    Anonymous: Sweet! Stay tuned for more boozy posts!

    JoLynn: Thank you! I just became a follower of your beautiful blog. I would love to have you post something food/beverage-ish a guest blogger sometime! We can do a little cross-blogging!

    Anyway, thanks for sticking around!

  5. I really look forward to your photos, your recipes and your humor! Give us more, sell us something, we will buy it!! You're great, love that you're back!
