Dearest TLMers,

I've been trying to write my next Huffington Post: Becoming Fearless blog post all morning. I've tried to write at Starbucks, in the lobby of my apartment building, in my apartment in my apartment building (well that one was obvious), but no matter where my laptop and I go, my writer's block continues to does my mental bashing. 

It's been about a month since my last article was published and, in that time, I have come across a plethora of inspiring scenarios, the likes of which include a certain New York Times article and the fact that one of the main characters on Political Animals is bulimic. I've started to write countless posts discussing these topics and more but alas, I am unable to finish each and every one of them. So, what's going on with me? Truthfully, I have no idea. Really, I have none. What I can tell you is that sometimes mental clarity is hard to come by and, right now, my mind is struggling (re: last week's umbrella piece).

For now, let me leave you with this: over the next few days, TLM will probably be going through some formality changes. I have some new ideas in terms of TLM's overarching theme as well as my goal(s) with The Life Muse. In the meantime, I'm trying to have fun; I'm trying to keep my mind off of the fact that, as a writer, I'm having trouble writing. So, if you will, keep your fingers crossed that my mental clouds clear and clarity resumes. Trust me when I tell you that we will BOTH benefit from it!

All my best,
