I've been sort of absent lately, haven't I? As you probably know, I was in Portland for the blogger's conference, and then went on to Seattle to visit family, and Oakland to run a 1/2 marathon. It was all great, and also totally distracting. To add to the craziness, my computer was stolen on my first night in Seattle, leaving me with only my iPhone to function with. I gave up pretty quickly on phone blogging, and decided to just relax and enjoy the down time. Usually when we're forced to take a breather it's for good reason, and I think that holds true for me this time.
It turned out to be a really good thing that I had time to step back and look at what I've been doing. Positive Motion has been growing steadily, and while I like the way it's gotten started, there's a lot more I want to do with it. I've also been working on a basic "how to go vegan" book for people who need a step by step guided tour through the kitchen. One day while I was just pondering all my options, I came up with one that hadn't occurred to me before. It suddenly seemed obvious that all of my smaller projects wanted to be combined into one big one, right here under the PV roof. I realized that the book is not a book at all. It's much better suited to becoming an online program, and that's where my energy is going now.
Positively Vegan will remain a happy place to cook and eat and find positive reasons to eat more plants. It will also expand to include health and exercise, and occasional tidbits about animal welfare and environmental issues related to our food consumption as a society. Going vegan or plant-based eventually becomes a complete lifestyle package for most of us, and I want to share all the goodness.
I have my new computer now, and I'm hard at work behind the scenes putting it all together while I also get back to posting regularly here on the blog. Watch for more tasty recipes, plus a whole lot more. And if you aren't already subscribed by email, now is a good time to do that, so you'll never miss a post.
As my daughter once said, while jumping on her bed, apparently quite beside herself with excitement over a big adventure coming up, "I'm so excited! So am I!" That's how I feel right now.
