I found inspiration for dinner today, Quiche! Nothing beats a good quiche. I lost inspiration for writing, not for writing itself, but rather what to write about for my daily posting. I have nothing earth shattering to share, no deep thoughts for the day, nothing essential aside from my quiche. I would argue that even my quiche is non-inspirational, nothing original in my quiche; just ham and Swiss cheese and not even a special ham; just a domestic American ham that comes in rectangular form. It makes me sad that here in the United States, we accept rectangular ham as normal. A pig’s leg, haunch or buttock isn’t a rectangular shape so why would the ham be rectangular? That being said, the quiches came out very nicely. I made two; one for my son to take home and one for my daughter and myself. What I find to be great about quiche is that it is equally good hot, warm or cold. When you serve it with a salad it makes a nice light dinner.
When I said that I had nothing to say, it was a fleeting sensation that left when I started to write about my lack of inspiration. I was exaggerating, silly me. It didn’t take too many sentences before I was describing something and that was my dissatisfaction with our ham in the good old U.S. of A. This reminds me of something Erica Johnson, a Daily Post blogger, wrote about; how no one complains about talking blocks whereas many writers complain of writer’s block. I think that the issue has something to do with the feeling that you have nothing to say, that somehow when you write it down, it means more than when you simply say it out loud. I’ll have to keep this in the forefront of my mind when I sit down to write, start typing and something will develop into a line of thought, it might not be Pulitzer prize-winning material but that isn’t the goal here. The goal is writing, pure and simple and enjoyment.
