The mountains and I

I recently spent a few days back in Himachal, about 6 hours away from the towns where I spent my early childhood, and I owe you all a photo-essay I've been composing in my head about that wonderful little holiday... a holiday in some ways and a homecoming in others. Honestly, though, I'm a little too tired for it just now. A few friends and I are doing 30/30 (a crazy challenge where poets attempt to write a poem every day during the month of April) on a private blog, and that's taking up most of my writing energy at this moment. But, here, I'll leave you with a quote that sums up how I feel since getting back (each of these lines is important):

replenish [ri-plen-ish] verb (used with object) 1. to make full or complete again, as by supplying what is lacking, used up, etc. 2. to supply (a fire, stove, etc.) with fresh fuel. 3. to fill again or anew.

(yes, i just quoted from the dictionary!)

More soon, I promise! I'm working on making time for blogging again, and also on making time to ensure that this blog continues to represent me whole, not just as a writer — something that's become a bit of a challenge for me since it started doubling as my website.

A post about education or gardening or pottery or random bits of life coming next!
