The Tulip Season
The picture of tulips certainly batrays the fact that I've been procrastinatig on writing this post for the last five months. I'm sorry to have disappeared on you for so long, but the truth is that I kind of struggle with settling on the direction of this blog as of lately. I used to share practicaly everything when I was younger, but as I'm getting older, I find myself more content with keeping things to myself. Even upon finishing an excelent book, I don't necessarily feel the urge to go and write a review for it. I much rather reflect in solitude on the feelings that the book stirred within me. With the lessening desire to share I also experience a lot of second guessing whenever I am about to share something. I definitely overthink it nowadays, which is something I hadn't bothered with at all when I was younger. It's a draining process I don't want to go through, and as a result, I lose all the inclination to realize any ideas floating in my head...
I am very unsure about the future of this blog, but at the same time, I don't seem to be able to let go of it altogether. Even though my file is filled with unfinished blog posts that I lost the desire to get back to, I never cease to imagine what pictures I'd like to photograph and what topics I'd like to write about when the inspiration strucks. In reality, though, I feel like I will have to abondon these intangible castles in the air and rather focus on something much more simple. I thought perhaps I could do monthly posts in which I would share the highlights of what I read and did during that time. Maybe going back to basics will restore my love for blogging in time. At least, that's my hope... In the meantime, here are some pictures that I've taken during the spring and summer...
