I am having difficulty thinking of an amazing wonderful post for you this week and why is that....
I am not inspired I guess. The weather has been against me for the last few weeks with rain and so cold. Also I feel the pressure to produce some kind of really good and excellent blog because I now have many readers of the blog! My reaction to this is not to do any blogs at all. :-) I spend a lot of time doing videos and hiding out at my Island Rambles Page on Facebook. I really like Facebook as it is so relaxing and all you do is click. I put videos into islandrambles YouTube and no one looks there or goes there so I guess it is excellent for hiding out at. I have no idea what to blog about and worry that I now actually have readers who expect something of some kind to happen here. Yikes! Pressure!!
I waited for years to have readers of this blog and I am so happy to have many visitors come to see the blog from all over. I am so grateful for this. I hoped that if I created this place people would come, like in Field of Dreams. This is my Field of Dreams and now I am not sure how to play the game. I am speaking truly from my heart and this is a more personal posting than what is normal for me.
For years I would write many stories and historical blogs about Vancouver Island. I had few readers. Years ago I had another blog that was full of research and history of the island and somehow someone took over that blog. It is gone now. I spent years working on that with no success. Now I do not wish to repeat all that work. What to do now? Unknown.
I am not sure what people want me to write about or what to put into the blog now. The Island Rambles Facebook Page and The Island Rambles Blog are very successful and I have found the most amazing, kind and wonderful readers. I have the most loyal and understanding blog friends. I have found many sweet and caring friends on Facebook also. For myself, I think I have achieved all my dreams in finding the people who I was looking for all along. So personally I have accomplished even more than I dreamed of in finding friends through this medium.

But I still can not write. What is the matter with me? If anyone knows or has felt like this, talk to me in the comments. I am hoping my writing slump will pass soon and I will feel the muse has returned to give me inspiration and direction on my path. Meanwhile I have writers block so there will be photos and videos to fill this space.

When the weather improves I will be able to get some new photos to put in and perhaps I will not be so tired. I am going through a period of extreme low energy and poor health. In a few weeks all the new birds will have come in and the eagles will be having their babies in the months ahead so there will be a lot of excitement. I will have some wonderful blogs to post then.

(eagles nests that I found that seem to be active already, I found some more but will post the photos later on a post about the eagles).
(We found a Harrier flying across a field)
On Facebook you can see my Island Rambles Page where I post frequently. I post videos frequently on my Island Rambles YouTube Channel also. You can find me on Twitter here.
