Well, it had to happen, and the lyrics of the Righteous Brothers song Loving’ Feeling just about sums it it, really.
I’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, lovin’ feelin’
Bring back that lovin’ feeling
‘Cause it’s gone, gone, gone
At first I thought I was just in a reading slum because of a number of DNF reads that left me, well, questioning my choice in books. So I took a couple of weeks off from reading altogether, which sort of turned into a month and then … I went on holiday for the entire month of July and was busy just relaxing doing nothing—which, apparently, the Dutch have a saying for “niksen,” which is the art of doing just that, nothing—and when we weren’t doing niksen we were off out and about enjoying ourselves.
The thing is, I think I’ve either become a full-time practitioner, or an expert at niksen … or both!
Either way, I might not be blogging full-time again for a while, because I’m going to be doing a little more niksen in my life.
