As big a queen fan as I am, I'm a little surprised that when this word popped into my head for tonight's musings, that I thought of the Billy Joel song, rather than Queen's collaboration with David Bowie. Here's the Billly Joel song, anyway

The pressure I refer to isn't anything medical, not about the blood through the veins, nor the eyes. Nor is it about anything about my current circumstances in life, though they might get the blood pumping a bit, and the angst coursing through said veins. Rather it's about this modest little streak of days writing in this space, about whatever might occur to me at whatever given moment I sit down with a laptop on....lap....and start typing.

Now that I've started doing this somewhat regularly, I feel a little pressure to keep doing this regularly. It's a bit annoying, really, because usually I don't have any clue what I might want to say when I sit down. The trick I used to have, of creating in my head a narrative around some random happening during the day, and then transcribing that into this space, that hasn't returned. I hope it does, because those entries are easy. This one, by contrast, has been quite a laborious slog. 20 minutes of typing, erasing, retyping, completely erasing, etc, etc, so on and so forth, blah blah blah. I'm boring myself, so imagine how you might feel?

Anyway, there's your lament for this 3rd of December. I'll be more amusing tomorrow. Probably.

    I've had days in a row when the only thing that would come to me when I was trying to write a daily blog was a big blank. I have learned it doesn't matter. If I only write that I'm bored with myself and my life and that only takes one sentence, that's okay. As the proverb says, into each life a little rain must fall sometimes. What is important is writing every day. I'm sure if we could read some great diarist's diary we would find days with entries like: "Got up. Watched the clouds. Went to bed."
