Over the 7 years I’ve been writing Fish & Bicycles, the two longest breaks I’ve taken from the blog have been sizeable, especially when you consider that normally I post at least once a week.
Reasons for the breaks have been many, but mostly it’s a combination of a decline in inspiration to write, married with various life events that demand time and attention.
Fitting, then, having just returned from two weeks in Italy with my wife and 18-year old son, that this particular life event provided the inspiration I needed in order to make my way back to Fish & Bicycles!
I mean, how can you NOT be inspired by this?
I journaled a fair amount during the trip, and starting soon I’ll be posting a series of blog entries titled Notes From Italy.
So, cook up some pasta, pour yourself a glass of chianti, and enjoy!
