Tradition of ignoring this diary continues!

Hello you wonderful person!

Priscilla here, and though I love to write, absolutely adore writing, I also get distracted by this big old baby of ours, The1870.

Today I’m going to not make a promise of writing more. It’s a tough thing, but I feel like I don’t want to neglect this diary, just need to pop in and put a post up when I have a quiet moment. If you know anything about my life, it’s that those quiet moments are really rare.

Staying in motion while being still is something that I continue to work on, but I find the fine art of sitting and typing at my desktop computer is just not as joyful as it once was. The church is always needing my attention, the studio and it’s tempting arts and crafts are always calling and my office, where said desktop sits, is just not appealing. 

Fear not, I have a plan! I’m getting ready to spruce up the office, fill it with magic, get a chair that fits my backside and is comfy enough to sit in and write. Honestly write. Losing myself for hours, days and whole chunks of time where I can just run wild on the keyboard.

Thank you for being here, reading, watching, supporting, and being a big part of what makes me smile each day.

I’ll write more later.

Priscilla :)
