I haven't updated in over three months. There are quite a few reasons why.

Firstly, my job (which I'm loving so much) means that I can't make public political comments. This is also a reason for less commenting on other people's posts. The problem is that I sort of view everything as political. I realise that my mind is quite holistic and bounces between religion, politics, philosophy, love, sex, art and finding connections between them all. Hence the posts which I have made in the last six months have tended to play it safe with sticking to cooking (although even then isn't my veganism edging close towards politics). Perhaps my readers who are similarly constrained can give me an idea of possible post topics other than the contents of my lunchbox.

Another aspect of it is that I've been busier. I still reasonably keep up with reading my friends page on LJ and DW but I'm not sure if I have time to post between work and activities at my shul (which I also love).

On top of that I'm not as deprived of human contact as I was a year ago. I now have colleagues and friends who live walking distance from my flat, so I feel less of a need to chatter on the internet, even when my husband is in another country.

Then there's the feeling that after so long without posts with much/any personal content I feel like I should bear my soul with detailed descriptions of my internal emotional life, but actually I don't really feel like doing that on the internet any more. I'm not entirely sure why.

Anyhow, perhaps it is enough to say that I am happy. I think I am the most contented I have been in years. I love my job. I love where I live. I love my religious community. I look forward to the return of my husband. I feel like my life is on track and whilst I'm sure there will be something unforeseen around the corner to knock me onto a different course, I feel reassured that I will be able to take it in my stride.
