I’ve Got Nothing

Nothing? That’s inconceivable. (copyright Buttercup Films Ltd.)

The particulars of my life have completely changed over the course of the last few weeks.  I have finally carved out some time to write and I’m shocked, all I really want to say is I’ve got nothing.

But how could you have nothing, you may ask.

Well just too much going on to have something, you see?  The famous fog found its way into my brain, and I’ve got nothing.  I want to write, but nothing.

Right, you mentioned nothing.  But you must have something, you’d say, you’ve moved a family across an ocean.

Nope, honest to goodness right now I’ve got nothing.

Wait, if you’ve got, or you have, than c’mon man that means there has to be something.

Okay, I’ll say, but you’re just riding a grammatical wave here.  Sure, I have a new job, a different address and country of residence,  and I’m driving a rented Nissan Ultima for cyrin’ out loud.  But I can’t stress it enough, here I sit to paint a page and I equally have no lies to blame, I’ve got nothing.

Nothing, but only because there is so much going on that it is impossible to write about it?

Anything is possible.  But, yes, exactly.

Ah ha, you’d say, see I told you , you don’t have nothing.  That’s inconceivable.

How can you not have nothing, if it isn’t something to begin with, I’d want to ask.  I’d refrain, because then we’d certainly be on to something and I’m certain that none of this would make any sense anymore.

I’ll try to write something next week.

  1. I love how you make something out of nothing. I know the feeling, but you at least make a clever post out of your nothingness. It’s inconceivable.

  2. Good luck with your new life! I’m not surprised that’s occupying the space in your mind where stories might otherwise be.

  3. Start with that damn award I gave ya 😛

  4. I get what you’re saying, or not saying. Gotta wait for the knot to untangle before stringing across the page.

  5. Oh, and I loved that bit from The Princess Bride. I might force my hubby to re-watch that with me tonight. 😉

  6. Ah, ya could have given us something more than that… 😉

    You must feel overwhelmed, I understand. We’ve all been there.

    Where did you move to?

    Where ever you are, it sounds as if you and your family have made it safe and well. Can’t really ask for more than that. 🙂

      So we moved from London to San Francisco. We lived in SF for almost 6 years before moving to London, so it really does feel like we are home. Certainly miss our friends in London though…thank you for your kind words and for you comment – I really appreciate it!
