You know how right after you get something you find something even more perfect? Remember that lamp I had specially made? You know the one from my post Customer Service just a little while back. (If you haven't read it or just want to gawk at my lamp click here.) Not to be confused with the above photo, which is the lamp I found after that. And yes, I bought it. Cause look how perfect it is.
After I bought the original lamp, I realized it's huge and probably wouldn't fit in my cozy Colorado dining room. I didn't even consider size before I bought it because I have totally lost perspective living in a huge museum-like house here in Morocco. So when I saw this much smaller (at almost half the size) but yet more refined and elegant lamp it just seemed right. And really, what more justification does one need than I-don't-know-which-will-fit-but-one-of-them-will to buy two lamps? Unless of course I've misjudged and it's actually too small for my dining room. Maybe I should buy a third medium sized lamp just in case. Maybe not. At this point, I need to just wait until I get home to Colorado and see which one fits the best.
And that's exactly the point I'm at with my writing.
I've been asked a lot of questions about the fate of this blog when I move back to the states. And I'm here to assure you that I will keep writing it for a while. But, I won't be writing with the same frequency of 3x a week like I have been here. There is simply too much catching up with friends, unpacking, 24/7 kids-on-summer-break-refereeing-chauffeuring madness, camping and relaxing to do. I'm sure you understand. However, I am shooting for a post once a week. Although I'm not making any promises.
Now, here's the biggie.
And the other biggie.
And oh yeah, that.
In answer to the most frequently asked question, will Rock The Kasbah end? Yes. Eventually it will. It won't end suddenly, I will wrap things up somehow cause I like nice tidy packages. But, it won't be until after the summer is over. I still have things to write people!
Then there's the second most commonly asked question. To which the answer is yes. I'm going to write Rock The Kasbah the book. And no, I don't have a publisher. And no, I don't know exactly how I'll get one. And no, I really don't want to think about that right now because it totally makes me anxious and I start sweating and my head starts swirling. And then I have to put my head between my legs and breathe. The goal is for a relaxing summer, remember? So, I'm just not going to think about it right now. Unless of course you are a publisher or your cousin from Minneapolis knows someone who used to date someone whos brother-in-law has the business card of a publisher. Then please interrupt my relaxing summer by calling me, e-mailing me or facebook friending me immediately.
And the last most commonly asked question, will I start a new blog. That's the one I'm not sure about. Cause, just like those two lamps, I don't know what the exact right fit is going to be until I'm home.
But I promise you, short of some tragic farm accident that causes me to loose both my hands, I will keep writing. I just don't know which lamp will be lighting the room as I do it.
