Update for the New Year

Shizouka Organic Market in December.
The New Year is already a week old as I get around to writing this. December was busy with visitors and holiday preparations, but if I said that was the only reason I didn't post I would be lying. And lying is unbecoming, so I'm going to tell the truth.

I'm feeling a bit meh about things here at JapanFarmersMarkets.

I love the markets, the growers and producers, the food I get to sample, and everything about them. I love meeting the new vendors and trying their wares (homemade coca-cola, why yes!) and talking with those I've met countless times before to see what's new, find out how their families are, and share a laugh or two.

I should be inspired. I should be excited. I should be typing my fingers off to share the news. But I'm not. Or at least I haven't been this past year. I could blame politics, long train rides, my old friends, Procrastination and Laziness, but that doesn't seem quite right, either.

To be honest, I think it's all of those and a few other things happening in my writing life. I am aiming to continue the market schedules and updates, but I'm not sure what else I'll be doing here. I have lots of ideas, but I don't want to make a promise I can't or won't keep for some reason or another. I do promise to send out notifications if I get things really rolling, but otherwise, please just bear with me for the time being.

See you at the market!
