Dear, oh, dear! It has been exactly a month since I last posted here and (dare I say?) it actually feels longer. Unfortunately, the amount of motivation I had about a month ago is about the same as what I have now. No new jolt of energy since 2017 began. In fact, it goes without saying really– new year, same stuff. And, boy, is it disappointing to start blogging again only to feel that you’ve fallen into a rut soon thereafter. So, here I am, trying to mount the horse once again.
