Overcoming Bloglessness



It’s Your Party.
Since many are marking their country’s “birthday” in the US today, we wanted to ask: How do you celebrate yours?

I found July at a yard sale.  Her hair reminded me of me. I didn’t buy any of her sisters.  She was ready to break out on her own.


We always spend July together.  It’s my Birthday Month. On Independence Day she comes out of her drawer and we begin celebrating.

We go on fabulous Birthday Month vacations.


We have Birthday Month dinners and drinks with friends.


On The Big Day, we have a little party and a little chocolate cake.


I always end up driving home.


When Birthday Month is over, July goes back in the drawer until Birthday Month rolls around again.

For many years I have suffered from debilitating bloglessness, only writing in my head, while everyone else posted and shared with ease. Previous attempts at recovery have failed, my secret journals edited to death, pages torn out, crumpled and trashed. I will not succumb to this embarassing condition. I will continue to struggle against the rampant backspacing and endless blank staring. I refuse to relapse into the void that is bloglessness. I can do it. I am doing it. I am Overcoming Bloglessness.

  1. I loved this — what fun to read (and look at). She’s also a beautiful doll.

  2. Now that’s my sort of birthday companion!

  3. I appears as though your July’s been swimming in that Margarita. This was fun and nicely done!

  4. This was wonderful – and I know considerable work went into setting and taking the photos. They look like studio shots! Especially at the beach. Beautiful.

  5. Thanks, Maggie. She’s very photogenic.
    All but the flag shot are from previous years, so the hard part was dredging them up.
